Most people experience back pain at some point in their lives. Not only does it hurt – it can disrupt your work life and keep you from enjoying your favorite activities.
The Aurora Back and Spine Program offers cutting-edge back and spine treatments from an integrated team of expert providers. In many cases, back pain can be managed with less invasive options like chiropractic, acupuncture and massage. That’s why our team includes spine physiatrists, physical therapists and integrative medicine experts in addition to top surgeons.
If surgery is necessary, we offer minimally invasive options whenever possible – so you can get the care you need and get back to feeling like you again.
Whether it’s a herniated disc, bulging disc, sciatic nerve pain or another condition, the Aurora Back and Spine Program offers a single entry point for fully integrated care. Call (414) 649-3300 in Milwaukee or (844) 310-3438 in Summit to find out more, or request an appointment online.
Here’s some great news: Back pain – even lower back pain - often goes away on its own in a few days or weeks. Aspirin and rest may be enough to heal you. But if the pain doesn’t go away or you’re not able to do simple movements, it’s time for expert help.
Our multidisciplinary team of physicians specializes in general back and neck pain, lower back pain, spine pain, muscle strains, herniated discs or slipped discs, bulging discs, sciatica, sciatic nerve pain, lumbar stenosis, spinal fractures, spinal tumors and many other back and spine-related conditions.
