The Way Back to Life.
At Spine Team Texas, we focus on one thing — comprehensive spine
care. It's our mission to uphold a reputation of excellence through
our dedicated staff and fellowship-trained, spine-focused physicians.
expertise spans over four distinct treatment arenas: physical medicine
and rehabilitation, physical therapy, minimally invasive surgery and injection
therapy. Through our integrated, team approach, we're able to customize
a treatment plan using a combination of one or more options from these
specialized fields of expertise. This not only helps ensure you're
receiving the best available care, but also provides you a host of highly
effective non-surgical or minimally invasive treatment options.
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.
Since most back pain is muscle-related, the specialty of physical medicine
and rehabilitation (PMR) is a widely elected option in treating back and
neck pain. At Spine Team Texas, a PMR physician will collaborate with our
spine-focused physical therapists, using exercise as the key ingredient
to recovery along with other non-surgical treatment methods.
Instead of referring a patient across town, Spine Team Texas has an on-site
physical therapy gym with a team of spine-focused physical therapists,
some of which are trained in the McKenzie method for spine therapy. Experts
in physical therapy, exercise for rehabilitation and musculoskeletal diagnostics,
our physical therapists blend hands-on care with personalized movements
and exercises that strengthen the back and improve flexibility. Through
these treatments, the physical therapists at Spine Team Texas can help
address your pain symptoms so you can get back to life.
Minimally Invasive Surgery.
Approximately 90% of Spine Team Texas patients are treated non-surgically.
However, when surgery is needed, you'll be glad to know our neurosurgeons
are nationally recognized for their skills and expertise. Led by Dr. David
Rothbart, a renowned neurosurgeon and advocate of minimally invasive surgical
techniques, our spine-focused surgeons are highly trained and experienced
in the latest surgical methods and technologies. Minimally invasive surgery
provides the opportunity to relieve pain. This treatment method involves
making a small incision, as little as half an inch, and inserting specialized
instruments or probes to access and repair the damaged area of the spine.
This less aggressive approach is typically completed on an outpatient basis
has proven to be as successful as conventional, or "open surgery",
Spine Team Texas utilizes a state-of-the-art injection suite with the most
advanced technology. Under fluoroscopic guidance, these injections directly
target the source of pain, delivering effective medication to help bridge
the patient to the exercise gym. In addition, these injections can be used
as an advanced diagnostic tool, providing helpful clues to the possible
causes of neck and back pain.
BOTOX Neurotoxin Treatment.
BOTOX has been approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to treat Cervical Dystonia (uncontrollable muscle tightening or turning of the neck). Qualifying Spine Team Texas patients can be treated with BOTOX to relieve muscle spasms and reduce pain levels. The treatment works by stopping the release of acetylcholine, a substance that transmits signals from nerves to muscles. Results from the BOTOX Neurotoxin Treatment have been seen within a few days, with most patients only needing to return for another injection after three months.
