Customized Treatment Plans with Maximum Recovery

At Virginia Spine Institute, we believe that surgery is not always the first answer. In fact, 90% of our patients are successfully treated non-operatively. This philosophy is embodied by all of our physicians who initially utilize non-operative methods for our patients. These treatment options include physical therapy, regenerative medicine, osteopathic medicine, injections, acupuncture, and therapeutic exercise programs.
