We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
Back pain is one of the most common conditions you may experience. More than 80 percent of people have suffered back pain their lives, and when it happens, normal activities like going to work or playing with your kids become a challenge. But you don’t have to suffer back pain any longer. Our orthopedic experts have the equipment and expertise to help you stand tall and live pain-free.
Pain isn’t one size fits all
Neither are the treatments we offer. Back and spine pain comes in many forms, from trauma and incorrect body mechanics, to the realities of aging and wear and tear. At Coral Gables, our priority is to keep you off the operating table if possible. Anti-inflammatory medicine, ice, heat and massage treatment can all help heal common back pain. If those don’t work, surgery will be considered. The exact treatment plan depends on the nature of the injury.
Some of the conditions commonly requiring surgery include scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, radiculopathy or disk disease.
