Spine and Back Care

IBJI is home to one of the largest, most experienced teams of orthopedic back and spine specialists in Illinois. Back pain has a debilitating reputation, and for good reason. A nagging back condition can affect every element of your daily life, whether it’s carrying laundry, walking your dog, or even just driving to the store. IBJI’s specialized back and spine orthopedists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of the region’s bone and joint disorders, including sports injuries, arthritis, spinal 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.

When You Should See a Doctor for Back Pain

Orthopedists commonly see 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 lumbar region after sitting for an extended period; sudden bouts of sharp, localized pain; back pain that impedes your posture; and any loss of sensation or weakness in the extremities.

Back Conditions and Treatments by IBJI:

IBJI’s orthopedic Back and Spine 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. The following are examples of conditions and treatments are commonly treated by the Illinois Bone and Joint Institute.
