Is neck pain or back pain impacting your life?

Four out of five Americans experience debilitating back pain at least once in their lives.

Back strains are painful. A network of 34 vertebrae connects more than 200 ligaments and 120 muscles to create more than 100 joints in your back. When something goes awry, it hurts to walk, sit, or lie down. If pain limits your movements, find a solution.

Bone & Joint's Spine Care Team is the most comprehensive team of spinal experts under one roof in Wausau, Wisconsin. Our team offers nonsurgical spine-care treatments including spine-specific physical therapy, interventional pain management, and corticosteroid injections to relieve your physical symptoms. They offer surgical services such as discectomies, also provide emotional support as you work through pain management issues, treatment, and recovery.

Imagine being able to look over your shoulder, pick up a child, or return to work without pain. Call the Bone & Joint Center, toll-free at 855.810.6319, use our local number 715.393.0477, or click here to request an appointment.
