Back pain is a serious medical condition. Over 86 million Americans suffer from some type of back pain. It is the number one reason people stay home from work.
Many people try to relieve the pain through a number of non-invasive ways, including over-the-counter medications, ice packs and exercise. When those methods fail to work, some people end up turning to surgery. Over half a million disc surgeries are performed each year, and the majority of them are non-effective. These failed surgeries contribute to back pain being one of the number one causes of disability in the United States.
North American Spine focuses on minimally invasive surgeries that help reduce recovery time and trauma associated with open-back surgeries. One of the 30-plus treatment options available at North American Spine includes the AccuraScope® procedure. Depending on where the pain is located, a catheter or needle is inserted into a small opening on the respective site on the spine. This procedure helps a doctor locate and treat the various causes of the patient’s pain. Many times the patient feels relief within days, as opposed to other more invasive procedures, in which the patient may take weeks or even months to recover.
In order to ensure that patients receive the best care for their condition, all North American Spine clients receive a detailed evaluation. North American Spine uses a variety of tests and procedures to pinpoint the cause of each person’s pain. Once a diagnosis is made, a detailed treatment plan can be put into place.
North American Spine is headquartered in Dallas, Texas. Branch offices are located in Houston, Texas; Minneapolis, MN; Phoenix, Arizona; Hackensack, Pennsylvania and Tampa, Florida.
