Back Pain is OptionaL
There are numerous causes of back and neck pain. Careful diagnostic evaluations and pathology specific treatments are required to correctly identify and treat specific spinal pain problems. Surgery does not cure all neck, back and sciatica problems. In fact, surgery is often not necessary. It takes careful evaluations and examinations to locate and successfully resolve back and neck pain problems. There are many methods of reliving back pain, so in most cases, if you’re living with back pain, know you have options for pain-free living without major surgery or addictive pills.
Palm Beach Spine & Diagnostic Institute is led by Lawrence Gorfine, MD, who is Board Certified in Pain Medicine by the American Board of Pain Medicine and Board Certified in Anesthesiology by the American Board of Anesthesiology.

To not be able to move or get out of bed for about 3 years... it took everything I love. The staff at Palm Beach Spine & Diagnostic Institute gave me a lot of hope. It took a few weeks and I started to feel better. It was miraculous. I danced... hiked ... doing kung-fu again ... it's definitely worth it. You can't put a price on feeling good. You cannot put a price on your health.
I have not had pain of any extent for the last 6 month. Personal service is the thing… his technique definitely worked for me. They have been absolutely first class.
Back AND Neck Pain (continued)
Back pain often has multiple sources. Pain may come from discs, nerves, joints in the spine, ligaments, tendons and muscles. A systematic evaluation allows our physicians to carefully identify those sources and initiate an individual plan.
Treatment techniques used by the board-certified pain management physicians here at the Palm Beach Spine & Diagnostic Institute in Palm Beach County include a modern, forward thinking approach to understanding and treating the injury process, limiting the inflammatory response and stimulating a healing process.
