FOR BACK PAIN
INSURANCE COMPANIES WE WORK WITH
Whatever your pain or problems, we will hear you out and give you the right care and find a way forwards. We accept insurance and self-paying patients.
Do you need a spine X-ray, MRI or any other imaging? We can organise that for you but only if you really need it because scans rarely show what is hurting.
We offer diagnostic spinal injections including facet joints, nerve root injection, sacroiliac and epidural.
We often screen for underlying inflammatory pathology to rule out anything serious.
Very few people need spinal surgery and very few experts give you a high-quality informed and honest opinion
Find out more about non-invasive options, by far the most common treatment needed. This includes physiotherapy, exercise, yoga, combined physical and psychological programmes and more tailored to your needs.
Mr. John O'Dowd is a renowned and respected medical expert in the field of back pain and spinal injuries. He has been working with solicitors for over 20 years.
