Spine & Scoliosis

Hampton Roads destination for advanced spine care

Atlantic Orthopaedic Specialists is a regional spine care center and the destination for patients in Hampton Roads region who are suffering with back and neck pain. Our center provides patients with access to rehab options and other non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments all at five convenient locations, for convenience and full service.

Highly trained and skilled surgeons

Atlantic Orthopaedic Specialists center combines the expertise of our fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeons, to provide both surgical and conservative treatments for acute and chronic spine conditions.

Invasive surgery as a last option

Our goal is to emphasize non-surgical treatment options and when needed, minimally invasive spine surgery, under one roof, to avoid fragmented care. Emphasis on non-surgical approaches makes our Spine Center unique.

Some non-surgical treatment options include exercise, relaxation, positioning, pain medications, muscle relaxants, epidural injections, and manual and physical therapy. We have a full service rehab gym with spine- trained therapists.

When surgical intervention is required, our highly-trained orthopedic surgeons offer the most advanced and innovative surgical treatment options in the region.

Understanding pain

Pain is a symptom that something is wrong. Perhaps the spine muscles are too weak, or inflexible. Perhaps you lifted something heavy and threw out your back or the body mechanics were off. We can develop a rehab plan to meet your individual condition and needs. We want you to get back to your life, instead of drugging you to mask your discomfort and recommending bed rest, each of which has been shown to cause more pain and create more risk of strain and pain, and addiction. We have learned and studies support treating pain with movement like low-impact sports including walking and swimming.

Our team is here for you

We offer the best, least invasive and least aggressive options to relieve your pain and symptoms so you can get back to the life you love. Atlantic Orthopaedic Specialists Spine Care Center has convenient locations in Virginia Beach, Norfolk and Chesapeake.
