For acute and sometimes chronic pain primarily in the back or neck it’s very reasonable to seek care from one of our spine physical therapists. For many insurances, referrals are not required. Dr. Paul’s team works closely with the therapists. They often facilitate referrals to Dr. Paul and his spine surgery partners.
