Finding the right neck or back doctor in Florida

Like anywhere in the country, searching for the right doctor for you and your lifestyle can be intimidating if you’re a patient in Florida dealing with neck or back pain. Whether you are searching in Tampa, Orlando, Hialeah or other cities across the state, understanding the types of testing and treatments available can be critical in helping you find the relief you deserve.

How to find the right doctor for you

We hope the following information can help you narrow your search for a spine doctor in Florida. If you are dealing with neck or back pain that has not improved after a few days or a week at the most, schedule a visit with a general practitioner such as your primary care doctor. He or she can review your medical history, perform a full physical evaluation and order diagnostic imagery, such as an X-ray, MRI or CT scan. Once a diagnosis has been made for your condition, you can discuss initial treatments, which are usually conservative in nature.

Your primary care doctor can also help refer you to practitioners, including physiatrists, physical therapists or chiropractors who can provide more specialized care, if necessary. You can also ask about our Total Spine Care Network, which is our partnership with local providers across the country. Surgery can be an effective treatment for many spine conditions, but it is usually considered as a last resort to be explored once conservative options have been exhausted.
