The Spine Clinic at Divine Savior Healthcare is a non-operative/non-invasive exercise program specifically designed to treat chronic neck and back pain.

Our team of Spine Clinic trained therapists (physical therapists and athletic trainers) and Physical Medicine Specialist, Dr. Kenneth Oh, will develop an individualized program geared at bringing you back to function!

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM THE SPINE CLINIC?

The Spine Clinic will help patients (pre and post-surgical) who are experiencing chronic neck and back pain, causing limitations in daily life activities. Many patients will have already failed other forms of physical therapy, chiropractic treatment and even spinal injections.

HOW DOES THE SPINE CLINIC WORK?

The program involves strengthening spinal muscles through a moderately intense exercise approach, primarily using our new MedX Lumbar and MedX Cervical equipment. The MedX machines are used to precisely determine the degree of spinal weakness in the neck and low back through the client’s available range of motion. The MedX information plus additional clinic testing helps us to create a customized strengthening program for each patient.

  • Each session is 90 minutes in length and includes focused stretching and strengthening that incorporates the Med X equipment
  • Most programs will be designed to be two sessions per week for approximately eight weeks. The program length may be altered based on the individual needs of the patient, but routinely an average of 16 visits will help the patient reach a level of strength for an independent home program
  • Insurance will be pre-authorized prior to the start of the therapy program as well and we will work within insurance guidelines
WHAT ARE THE PRIMARY GOALS OF THE SPINE CLINIC?
  • Increase spinal strength and endurance
  • Increase spinal range of motion
  • Improve overall daily function
  • Reduced pain
ACHIEVEMENT OF THE PRIMARY GOALS IDEALLY WILL LEAD TO:
  • Reduced disability
  • Reduced reliability on medications for pain relief
  • Reduced avoidance of activity
  • Possible avoiding of surgery
