Referral to a Physician
Occasionally, and fortunately, there are patients with neck or back problems who do not need to undergo spine surgery.
In these cases, Dr. McAfee’s office can refer you to another type of professional health care provider. Sometimes additional surgery is not the solution to residual pain or disability after the physical/mechanical correction has already been accomplished by surgery. Also, there are many back and neck problems which do not need surgical correction.
Dr. McAfee’s office works in conjunction with other professionals such as Physical Therapists, Doctors of Osteopathy, Doctors of Psychiatry, Pain Management, and Rehabilitation Specialists. They can refer you to these providers who successfully treat many conditions conservatively and less expensively to get you back to your work and leisure activities and improve your lifestyle.
