May 2, 2022 -- Got a pain in the neck? (Or back?) You’re not alone: Back pain affects 4 out of 5 Americans.
Northfield Hospital + Clinics now offers specialized back, neck and spine care in our Orthopedic Clinic in Northfield.
You benefit from the comprehensive approach of a team of doctors, surgeons, and physical therapists, all with specialized training in spine care. The team is led by Dr. Monty Seper and Dr. Jeff Meland.
The care team designs custom treatment plans built on a conservative, non-surgical approach first. Non-surgical options include:
- Physical Therapy to build strength and decrease pain
- Anti-inflammatory medications to decrease swelling
- Low-impact exercises
- Icing therapy
- Activity modification
- Spinal injections
Most patients do not need surgery. If you would benefit from surgery, you’ll be referred to spine surgeons Dr. Amir Mehbod and Dr. Benjamin Mueller through NH+C’s partnership with Twin Cities Spine Center. They see patients in NH+C’s Orthopedic Clinic in Northfield, and perform surgeries at TC Spine locations.
