Back and Neck Pain Program
The Mercy Health System Neck and Back Pain Program is specifically designed to help patients who are experiencing chronic or acute back pain. The program makes it easy for referring physicians, emergency care providers and concerned potential patients to access care with one call to 610.237.7356.
Just as there is no one cause for pain in the spine, there is no one treatment that is effective for all types of back pain. The Neck and Back Pain Program at Mercy can help in streamlining and simplifying referrals and appointments.
A multidisciplinary team of experts, led by Mercy Pain Management’s Paige McLaughlin, MD, emphasizes a non-opioid approach to pain management, offering surgical and non-surgical specialized treatments. For patients, this means timely access to diagnostic testing, advanced imaging, appointments, and treatments—and a better way to identify the primary cause of pain and other factors that contribute to ongoing pain.
The program connects patients with appropriate specialists such as neurospinal surgeons, sports medicine experts, pain management specialists, physiatrists and physical therapists that specialize in spine care. For more information, please call 610.237.7356
Patients can access the Mercy Neck and Back Pain Program at both Mercy Fitzgerald and Mercy Philadelphia campuses.
