The doctors at Spinal Diagnostics aren’t your traditional pain management physicians. They’re the only pain practice in Tualatin and Newberg, Oregon, area that focuses entirely on spinal and neuropathic pain. Their dedicated focus and extensive experience in diagnosing and treating pain ensure that their patients receive an exceptional quality of care.

These highly skilled specialists strongly believe that each patient in pain deserves to tell their story and to receive the respect of a compassionate practitioner who listens to what they have to say.

The team at Spinal Diagnostics is dedicated to helping patients reduce their pain and suffering, and improve their quality of life without the use of narcotic medications or invasive surgery. As pain management specialists, their services often come after initially conservative care and before going to the extreme of surgery. As a result, they’re proud to help patients achieve optimal care by actively serving as intermediaries between patients, their primary care physicians, and surgeons.

The doctors don’t just say that patients should be equal partners in their medical care, they put it into practice by educating patients so that they can make decisions together. They work to find the right treatment for the right patient at the right time. The team thinks outside the box and searches for creative solutions that work for the individual. Medicine is as much an art as it is a science; the Spinal Diagnostics doctors embrace that belief.

Spinal Diagnostics is one of the only private practices in Oregon actively involved in clinical research. Their doctors are recognized leaders at the forefront of evidence-based medicine and believe that good research furthers medicine and helps patients and doctors.

Whether patients struggle with neck, back, arm, or leg pain, they receive innovative treatments at Spinal Diagnostics that effectively relieve their pain. To schedule an appointment, call the office or use the online booking form.
