When would I need the services of a spine specialist?

We never forget that people come to us in pain. When you’re in pain, you’re not yourself. You can’t be. We understand what pain and disability can do to your emotions and relationships, your work, your whole life. That’s why we work to ease your pain. It’s also why we show you how to take charge of your own recovery, then we can give you encouragement to do it.

People come to us from all over the country. Usually, their physicians send them.

If you are experiencing:

  • Neck, lower back, arm, or leg pain
  • Numbness, tingling, weakness in the arm or leg
  • Headaches associated with neck pain

You may want to see a spine specialist because these symptoms could suggest a serious problem that should be treated without delay. The Southeastern Spine Institute is dedicated exclusively to spine care.

What is the procedure for a new patient at SSI?

new patientsWhen you come through our doors, one of the first people to welcome you is our patient care coordinator. She’s here to answer your questions, get you through the medical history and insurance paperwork, and in to see a doctor. Most insurance is accepted, please ask your coordinator for more details.

Once you are in to see the doctor, you will be asked questions, not just about your symptoms, but about yourself. What you do. How you live. Your hopes. Your responsibilities. This information helps us to correctly diagnose your condition and plan your treatment. We believe in treating the whole person – body, mind and spirit – because what you want, and think, and feel promotes a successful and lasting outcome.
