Non-Surgical Treatment for Back and Neck Pain

The specialists in physical medicine are skilled at diagnosing and treating nerve, muscle and bone conditions without surgery. Our physiatrists are your first provider, as well as your point-of-contact and coordinator for any additional care you may need.

We offer a full-range of outpatient treatments, tailored to the specific needs of each individual. Fortunately, most patients can be helped through a combination of medications, injections and other minor procedures to relieve inflammation and pain, along with physical therapy to help you safely return to the activities you enjoy and prevent reinjury.

Spine Surgery

Eight out of ten Americans experience spine or back pain at some point in their lives. If this happens, you want the best specialists and treatments available.

The Spine Center has expert, fellowship-trained spine specialists who diagnose and treat a variety of complex conditions related to the spine and back, including degenerative disc disease, disc herniation, spondylolisthesis, and spinal tumors.

When possible, we offer patients minimally invasive surgeries, which mean smaller incisions, less blood loss and a faster recovery. Our goal is to get you back to doing the activities you love as quickly as possible.


Rehabilitation specialists work hand-in-hand with your physician to help reduce pain and restore function through strengthening, flexibility, stabilization and mobility techniques.

At the Spine Center, our physical therapists provide assessment, advice and, when needed, referral to one of MedStar National Rehabilitation Network’s 50 full-service physical therapy and rehabilitation locations, including the Barlow Building and nearby Friendship Heights sites.

Our goal is to arrive at as specific a diagnosis as possible, and formulate the most effective treatment plan.
