Back and Spine Center

About 80 percent of Americans will have back pain during their lives. But, for many, the pain and discomfort is more acute and may benefit from treatment: in any 3-month period, a quarter of all adults will experience back pain at least one day. The nationally ranked Ochsner Back and Spine Center offers the region’s best care for back and neck pain so you can get back to doing what you love.

Patients in the Ochsner Healthy Back Rehabilitation Program reported a 62.5 percent decrease in pain after 10 weeks of treatment.
