Clinical Outcomes for Spine

While it’s common for physicians and hospitals to make claims about high quality, it’s rare for any to reveal data on patient satisfaction and clinical outcome. Finally, there are centers that publish credible data on a Clinical Outcome Report Card. For 15 years, Prizm has been helping physician groups improve the quality of spine care by tracking clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction. This data is then shared with medical directors of health plans, large employer benefit vice presidents and physician referral sources. To our knowledge, these are the ONLY spine centers in the nation to collect and then publish their clinical outcomes. And these are the ONLY spine centers to track outcomes with an RN who is not employed by the spine center or hospital involved.

Lifting or sports activities can strain muscles, ligaments & tendons, causing painful spasms. Extreme pain can require a spine specialist.

However, if symptoms don’t improve over 3 days, you need to be assessed by a spine specialist.

Remember: Those who self diagnose themselves and self treat themselves do so at their own risk. Back and neck pain can arise from a variety of causes and may require a spine specialist to perform diagnostic tests to identify your problem and the best treatment. A spine specialized therapist can also create a home exercise program customized for you.
