Ohio State offers multiple treatment options to decrease your back and neck pain.
Neck and Back Pain Rehabilitation at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is part of Ohio State’s Comprehensive Spine Center. We provide care for people with short-term or chronic back or neck pain caused by injury, trauma, disease or aging. Our integrated approach focuses on nonsurgical solutions to alleviate pain and restore function.

- Degenerative disc disease
- Osteoporosis (thinning or loss of bone tissue over time)
- Radiculopathy (commonly referred to as sciatica; damage to a nerve extending from the lower back down the back of the leg and causing pain, weakness, numbness or tingling)
- Herniated disc
- Muscle injury or strain (injury to a muscle or a tendon)
- Spinal stenosis
- Whiplash, soft tissue injury to the neck
