What We Treat
Chronic low back pain is the number one cause of disability world wide and patients often end up in surgery where the failure rate is up to 40% according to the Journal of Pain Research. Avoid unnecessary treatments, imaging, interventions and surgeries by getting an assessment that demonstrates your pain triggers, learn how to eliminate your pain with moving in a spine sparing way, and receive appropriate rehabilitation tailored to your specific problem.
All low back pain has an origin. The key is finding yours. This requires knowledge about your exercises, stretches, movements, work habits, activities of daily living, and how they affect your spine, combined with an examination specifically designed to load different tissues to both solicit and alleviate your symptoms.
Dr. Tiltmann is a McGill method provider, one of five in the US. A 3-hour McGill method assessment will determine why you have chronic low back pain and how to end it. If your low back pain has lasted more than 6 months or you are suffering from episodic major flare-ups, have not responded to at least 3 or more interventions, the McGill assessment is your answer.
Dr. Tiltmann and Dr. Blum also treat other musculoskeletal conditions from TMJ to foot pain and everything in between, to help patients return to an active, fully functional and pain free lifestyle.
