Providing our bodies with mobility and strength, the spine is a complex structure that – when working properly – enables effortless movement. But when there is an injury, deformity, or disease, ordinary movements become painful…and sometimes impossible.
Eighty percent of adults will experience some type of spine and back pain or neck pain in their lives. While many problems resolve themselves, pain that lasts more than a week needs to be evaluated by a physician.
If you have a problem with your back or neck, Fox Valley Orthopedics offers the highest quality of physician service and advanced technological care. In many cases, patients can be successfully treated without the need for surgery.
As our patient, you will be coached, supported, and encouraged, as you learn to control and resolve your symptoms in order to reduce the recurrence and severity of any future problems. The goal is to get your spine back to where it needs to be so that you can enjoy a happy, productive lifestyle.
Spine problems can make life painful. If you are in pain, or are having difficulty with ordinary movements, please call us at (630) 584-1400 for an evaluation. We provide both surgical and non-surgical treatment options for spine disorders. As part of our comprehensive approach, we provide physical therapy and rehabilitation to maximize the recovery process.
