Are you living in pain? We can change that-

Dr. Robert Myles, Board Certified Orthopedic and Spine Surgeon and founder of the Institute of Spinal Disorders is making back pain history for patients across Fort Worth and the metroplex. If you are ready to say goodbye to back pain or neck pain, the Institute of Spinal Disorders can help.  For over 15 years, Dr. Myles has helped thousands of patients regain their lives by delivering care through an innovative and integrated approach.

Herniated disc, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, lower back pain and neck pain, as well as sciatica are just a few of the conditions treated at the Institute of Spinal Disorders.  But what sets Dr. Myles apart is how he customizes the treatment plan based on the patient-not on the condition. Through his years of experience, Dr. Myles has learned there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ when caring for patients with pain issues.  By utilizing state of the art operative and non-operative spine services, including physical therapists, chiropractors and other specialists, patients at the Institute of Spinal Disorders get the customized mix of services they need to make their back pain history-nothing more and nothing less.

Many patients with pain issues often defer treatment as they investigate their problem and look for solutions. According to a recent Pew Research study, 80% of internet users start a health issue inquiry at a search engine before seeking medical treatment. “With the rapid pace of change in the health care industry, coupled with 24/7 news and information on demand, it is easy to see how those suffering from pain can get mixed, or even worse-incorrect information about their condition and how to treat it.  I’ve made a commitment to my patients to ensure they have the information they need to understand their condition and the best treatment options available to live a pain free life. It is the reason I started the Institute of Spinal Disorders-to make back pain history.” stated Dr. Myles.

While every patient’s pain is unique, there are often common themes in the questions asked during their office visit.  Read the list below complied by Dr Myles based on the top five most commonly asked questions from his patients over the years, including his response. If you have asked any one of these to yourself or another medical provider, most likely you are ready find the help you need and deserve to live a pain free life.

Top five most commonly asked questions and answers about back pain:

Q:  Does pain go away on its own?

A: Sometimes

Simple strains caused by overuse or strenuous activities are most often the types of pain that will reside on their own.  It is the re-occurring or constant pain symptoms that you should seek immediate care from a spine specialist.

Q: What if previous treatment for my pain did not work?

A: Seek a second opinion

Living with pain is not really living, so seeking a second opinion is in your own best interest.  The Institute of Spinal Disorders offers a free MRI review for just that reason.  We want to help you live the pain free life you deserve.

Q: When will I know it is the right time to seek treatment from a spine specialist for neck or lower back pain?

A: You should seek treatment from a spine specialist when:

• Your back or neck pain is present for more than five to seven days
• Your pain runs down your arm or leg
• You notice sudden weakening in your arms or legs
• If coughing or sneezing cause an increase in pain in your arm or leg

With today’s advancements in medicine and technology, there are more conservative (non-surgical) treatment options available than ever before that can be effective and help avoid a surgical intervention.  In fact, at the Institute of Spinal Disorders, only about 10% of our patients turn out to be a candidate for a surgical procedure.

Q: Do all patients with back or neck pain require surgery?

A: Absolutely-no

With today’s advancements in medicine and technology, there are more conservative (non-surgical) treatment options available than ever before that can be effective and help avoid a surgical intervention.  In fact, at the Institute of Spinal Disorders, only about 10% of our patients turn out to be a candidate for a surgical procedure.

Q: If I do need surgery, can it be done minimally invasive?

A: In many cases-yes

The advanced technique of minimally invasive surgery can be used in many cases to treat specific problems related to back or leg pain.  Minimally invasive surgery decreases your healing time post operative pain related to the surgical procedure.
