Next Level is NOT your father’s chiropractor. We use combination of the latest research-based, non-invasive treatments in manual therapy, massage therapy, traction/decompression, and corrective exercise to help you avoid surgery.
Next Level works directly with your Medical Doctors and other spine care specialists to ensure efficient, effective, and coordinated care of all your spinal issues, limited not only to treatment, but also facilitation of MRI justification and imaging pre-authorization. This integrated approach can significantly decrease the time it takes for you to receive answers and relief.
If determined that you are a good candidate for treatment, you will undergo approximately 3-6 weeks of treatment (dependent of severity of condition and any complicating factors) with an average frequency of 2 times per week. Patients that respond to treatment for structural issues of the spine (approximately 85%), will be released from care with specific home care corrective exercises and recommendations for continued pain relief.
If you have not responded to care, we will take an active role in the facilitation of next steps including the below when appropriate:
-MRI authorization and scheduling
-Referral or co-management with primary care for consideration of oral steroid medication or other anti- inflammatory medications.
-Referral or co-management with pain management for consideration of spinal injections
-Referral or co-management with neurosurgery/orthopedic surgery for surgical consultation
-Referral or co-management with physiatry for other advanced diagnostics such as EMG/NCV
We not only will make the appropriate referral but also work directly with our trusted physician partners to facilitate timely appointments, getting you the most appropriate intervention as soon as possible.
