Back Specialist for Residents of Hampton, Williamsburg & Newport News, VA
A back specialist is a medical expert who has a narrowly focused practice, and therefore can provide specialized care for patients who have spinal conditions that range from the simple to the highly complex. Of course, back pain is one of the most common reasons why people seek medical attention, so primary care physicians generally see many patients for this issue. Oftentimes, the discomfort will resolve on its own, and simple pain relievers and anti-inflammatories can be helpful in the meantime. As a general rule of thumb, if the pain persists or worsens after a four to six weeks, it may be time to see a back specialist.
The back specialist at Tidewater Orthopaedics, Jonathan Mason, MD, evaluates and treats spinal conditions for individuals from Hampton, Williamsburg, and Newport News, Virginia.
