Connect with the Seacoast’s experts for treatment of your acute and chronic neck, mid-back and lower back pain due to disc degeneration and disc herniation, spinal stenosis, spinal fractures, arthritis, cancer, whiplash, scoliosis or chronic muscular spasms.

We create a treatment plan specifically for you. Monitored by our Spine Center Coordinator, we set up a path for you after your initial review, referring you directly to one or more of our specialists.

Diagnostic and interventional pain treatments

We offer state-of-the art diagnostic and interventional pain treatments,  available through at one of the region’s most experienced and largest pain groups.

Coordinate care with the largest outpatient physiatry group in New Hampshire, who works closely with our orthopedic, behavioral health, pain management and physical therapy groups to provide an all-encompassing approach to treating and preventing a wide variety of spine related problems.
