Start Here – Back & Neck Pain Assessment

If you’re reading this, odds are you are dealing with some level of back, neck or spine pain that is interfering with your daily living. Is it just nagging pain or something more serious? To start, take our free Back & Neck Pain Assessment. This easy and quick assessment will help you define your level of pain and discomfort and is a great first step in determining what level of care you may need.

Results of your assessment are immediately available to you, including recommendations for next steps. You will also have an opportunity to connect directly to our Spine Nurse Navigator to discuss results and develop a care pathway based on your results.

What to Expect

At the center of our comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach is a Spine Nurse Navigator who will guide you along every step of the way, coordinating your care, referrals, and addressing any concerns or questions you have. Our goal is to facilitate a seamless and coordinated process that keeps you and your health goals at the center of care.

After an initial consultation with our Spine Nurse Navigator, all patients go through a comprehensive assessment from a dedicated physiatrist (physical rehabilitation physician). This thorough clinical evaluation takes place at our dedicated Back & Spine Center, located on the WakeMed Raleigh Campus.

The initial evaluation may include diagnostic imaging studies (X-Rays, MRIs, etc.) and immediate pain management intervention. The results of your assessment may also include referral to one or more of the following therapies and specialists:

  • Orthopaedic Consultation
  • Neurosurgery Consultation
  • Interventional Pain Management
  • Chronic Pain Management
  • Physical Therapy/Rehabilitation
  • Acupuncture
  • Dry Needling
