Spine Clinic

Confluence Health has partnered with Virginia Mason on their proven model to treat patients suffering from back pain.

This team-based approach is a collaboration between the Physiatrist and Physical Therapists.

The Spine Clinic is an exciting model that allows us to provide better, faster and more affordable care to patients. As a result, unnecessary tests are avoided and patients return to work—and their lifestyle—sooner. Results show that when patients have quicker access to treatment for their back pain, their outcomes are better.

During the initial visit, patients will meet with a physical therapist and a physiatrist, who will diagnose the problem and determine the appropriate treatment. Our spine specialists provide expert care to individuals with operative and non-operative neck and back conditions such as:

  • Acute and subacute pain
