Charleston From FCPCharleston, SC: Where Bad Backs Get Better

Charleston has been named the top tourist destination in the country. People come to Charleston for a variety of reasons. Its restaurants are first-class. Its beaches are gorgeous. We have American history, distinctive architecture, the ocean and that Southern charm that seems to be missing in other places. In short, what’s not to like?

It should come as no surprise, then, that people travel to Charleston from the whole Southeast to have their back pain resolved. And that’s because the back doctors at the Southeastern Spine Institute (SSI) are recognized experts in back care. So keep in mind that there is nothing wrong with combining an appointment with a spine doctor while visiting a place as captivating as Charleston, SC.

Charleston Is Accessible

Drive around our fair city, and you will see people jogging, biking or just walking. The locals — and the transplants — love being outdoors. Yet most of our city is accessible for wheelchairs, canes and walkers. No matter what your level of mobility, you can find places in Charleston you can visit and places that are worthy of a visit.

So even if you arrive at our Mount Pleasant facilities hobbled by pain, you can be assured of two things:

  1. You will still have places to see and things to do during your rehabilitation.
  2. When you leave Charleston, you will be feeling more flexible and in less pain.

The Best Place for Back Care

SSI offers many options when it comes to reducing or eliminating your back pain. The first thing that happens at SSI is the diagnosis. Because everything is under one roof at SSI, the doctors in different departments can work as a team to solve the mystery of your back pain. It may be a digital X-ray that reveals the cause. It may be an MRI.

Once your doctor has made his diagnosis, then treatment can begin. The SSI spine physicians are conservative when it comes to treatment options. They will try a non-invasive treatment before other options. Surgery is always the last resort.

So come to Charleston, South Carolina. There are lots of good things going here, including exceptional back care.
