Back & Neck Pain
Back and neck pain can result from an accidental injury or an inflammatory disease and will require different treatment based on your specific diagnosis and condition. Jefferson's multidisciplinary team of orthopedists, neurosurgeons, rheumatologists, physiatrists (rehabilitation physicians), therapists and radiologists can diagnose and treat your back and neck pain.
Pain from Arthritis
If your pain is from arthritis, the rheumatologists of Jefferson's Arthritis Program will utilize the latest methods for diagnosis and treatment, including enrollment in clinical trials of the most novel therapeutic agents for this disease. We have state-of-the-art Infusion Centers at two locations, Center City Philadelphia and Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
We offer a wide variety of minimally invasive procedures, some of which are not offered by any other hospital in the Philadelphia region. Our orthopedic surgeons are considered pioneers in the development of minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS), which helps to reduce the risk of infection, decrease pain, reduce blood loss and facilitate faster recovery.
An integral part of your care and recovery also involves rehabilitation. When it comes to Rehabilitation Medicine, Jefferson is rated among the best in the nation according to U.S.News & World Report. Jefferson physiatrists have been leaders in rehabilitation medicine for more than 30 years. A team of occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, rehab nurses, therapeutic recreation specialists, social workers and psychologists support the full-time staff of board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians.
For chronic pain management, our pain management-trained anesthesiologists, psychologists and nurses offer the latest advances in both technological and psychological treatments. Our specialists provide a comprehensive, pain-focused evaluation of patients with chronic pain and offer leading-edge treatments such as nerve root block therapy, long-term intraspinal infusions and radiofrequency neurotomy.
As a complement to more traditional therapies, an integrative approach can be an additional solution for unresolved pain complaints and to improve strength and functional mobility. The team of physiatrists, lifestyle experts and musculoskeletal specialists of the Marcus Institute of Integrative Health as well as the acupuncturists and Oriental medicine practitioners of the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Program can make a big difference. Rated a Top Hospital for Alternative Medicine by Philadelphia magazine, many unique therapies – such as homeopathic bee venom injections – and a variety of manual medicine modalities are offered by the physicians and therapists at the Center.
