Back pain is a common complaint among Americans. In fact, as many as half of all Americans report some type of back pain in a given year. The cost of caring for back pain exceeds $50 billion annually. Spine pain is also the number-one reason for employee absenteeism and workers’ compensation claims.
Dr. Eric Robinson understands that the nature of your pain depends on its source. He will thoroughly evaluate your medical history and previous exams and, if necessary, may order or perform additional tests. Dr. Robinson also brings advanced procedures to your diagnosis and a thorough understanding of the mechanisms and nuances of spine pain.
