Our new Spine Center is open!
In addition to consultative and procedural services, the new HealthEast Spine Center will feature physical therapists specializing in spine care and using innovative techniques such as the Medx program, which focuses on strengthening specific regions of the back and neck. Additional complimentary services will continue to be added to create a one-stop shop for patients, greatly reducing the number of overall visits. Expanded offerings include:
- On-site HealthEast Optimum Rehabilitation physical therapy
- Informative patient education videos
- Personalized Spine Care navigation
- Increased access for scheduling appointments
- Expanded clinical and wellness treatment options
The Spine Center staff works collaboratively to return patients to their optimal state of function and health in an integrated, multidisciplinary way by reducing barriers often experienced in traditional settings. The focus is to provide patients with exceptional medical care, but the way it's delivered is what makes the new HealthEast Spine Center unique.
