Advanced treatment for back pain in North Richland Hills

Most people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. In fact, it is the top reason for missed work days in the U.S. Although back pain is often a normal part of the aging process, it is not something you have to live with.

The orthopedic specialists at Medical City North Hills can find the cause of your pain. Then, they can create an effective, customized plan for any back or spine disorder.

Your orthopedic team will start by diagnosing your back pain. They may use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), for example, to pinpoint back and spine conditions. These scans can detect anything from a herniated disc to muscle issues or arthritis. We'll then move forward with a treatment plan, which may include spine surgery.

Orthopedic spine surgery

Many people may treat or manage back pain using nonsurgical methods, such as physical therapy. If you need surgery, the orthopedic doctors at our hospital are on the leading-edge of new spine care methods. They will choose the least invasive options that meet your needs.
