IBJI’s specialized neck and spine orthopedists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of all spinal disorders, including sports injuries, arthritis, disc disorders, and physical trauma. Many of our doctors will sub-specialize in a specific region of the spine and back, ensuring that no matter what your condition, it will be correctly diagnosed and treated to return you to the maximum quality of life available.

Neck and Back Conditions and Treatments by IBJI:

IBJI’s orthopedic Spine and Back services in Illinois include consultation, inpatient management and outpatient treatment where appropriate. We make sure to look beyond your symptoms, communicate well with you as a person, and take the time to answer any questions during your appointment.

IBJI spine specialists use the latest diagnostic tools and surgical techniques to treat acute and chronic conditions of the back, neck, and spine. At IBJI, we take a comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment. Conservative and non-surgical treatments options are always used before discussing surgical options. Nonsurgical interventions are used for reducing pain and restoring your mobility. 

When surgery is the best treatment option, we provide patients with highly-precise surgical expertise and offer a wide range of treatments including surgical options using minimally invasive techniques to advanced surgical procedures. IBJI physicians always choose a treatment that will result in the highest outcome to help the patient move better and live better.

IBJI Back, Neck, and Spine Specialists May Include:

Our physicians are board-certified, fellowship trained and have held prestigious awards and appointments for their work. Many are active researchers and educators, and have written in textbooks and scientific articles in peer-reviewed spine journals. 

Many are dedicated members of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, North American Spine Society, the Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, Spine Intervention Society, and the American Orthopaedic Association’s Emerging Leaders Program.

When You Should See a Doctor for Neck or Back Pain

Orthopedists commonly see neck or back pain stemming from injuries and spinal deformities. Oftentimes acute injuries can decrease in frequency by utilizing good posture and lifting techniques, but they can still get worse without treatment, just like chronic and progressive conditions. No matter what type of back injury you have, seek out one of IBJI’s locations if you’re experiencing: unrelenting stiffness or aching; pain in the cervical or lumbar region after sitting for an extended period; sudden bouts of sharp, localized pain; back or neck pain that impedes your posture; and any loss of sensation or weakness in the extremities.
