Back & Spine
Almost everyone has had a sore back at one time or another. In fact, 8 out of 10 people experience back pain during their lives.
Low back pain is especially common, which is largely due to our anatomy. The spine supports the upper body, while the weight of the upper body rests on the lower back.
The MCMC | OHSU Orthopedics team provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of back problems. Further, by working with a network of physicians, therapists, personal trainers and other wellness professionals, our patients benefit from an array of specialists to enhance their healing.
Our goal is to determine the source of your back pain so we can develop a personalized treatment plan for you.
