AXIS: The Axis Spine Center at NWSH

When you have serious problems with back pain and immobility, restoring your spine’s health means restoring your quality of life.

Back pain can be seriously debilitating and affect nearly every activity or movement you make, from walking and driving to more strenuous activities like cleaning the house or gardening. Sometimes, even sitting or sleeping can result in pain and stiffness. Thankfully, modern medicine offers relief for many back problems that used to be untreatable.

The Axis Spine Center, with facilities in Post Falls and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, offers comprehensive spine care, offering services to those seeking solace from back pain and spine-related issues. 

 

Spine Experts

At Axis Spine Center, we have a team of accomplished physicians, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and other specialists who are committed to improving each patient’s quality of life through the practice of their particular specialty. The center is physician-owned and operated by a caring team of dedicated physicians whose work is complementary for every stage of spine care, from diagnosis through recovery. 

The concept behind the Axis Spine Center is to provide every type of service that spine patients will need to utilize to address the cause and treatment of their infirmities under one roof. We use state-of-the-art surgical techniques, prostheses, and therapies to provide effective remedies for back pain and immobility to patients of all ages and conditions.

 

A Comprehensive Approach

Our unwavering commitment to providing the highest level of specialized care in the region sets Axis Spine Center apart. While other clinics and medical facilities offer spinal care, among other services, our practice is based on the idea that healthcare professionals can offer a higher level of service to patients by focusing on one specialty. Our highly trained specialists and surgeons have unparalleled experience and training in a single specialty, spine health, making us the leading spine specialists in the Inland Northwest.

Our services include:

  • Spine Surgery: For patients whose spine problems would benefit the most from surgical intervention, we offer both minimally invasive surgery and traditional surgical services, depending upon the issue being treated. We treat patients with spinal deformities, trauma injuries, degenerative conditions, and other problems. 
  • Interventional Pain: Interventional pain treatments refer to various minimally invasive therapies, including injections or implants, often performed in an outpatient setting. These treatments typically address chronic conditions, providing temporary relief or as a continual therapy. An example may be epidural steroid injections to reduce inflammation to Superion implants that address minor to moderate cases of spinal stenosis. 
  • Regenerative Medicine: Regenerative medicine is a revolutionary field in which doctors use stem cell therapy or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself. In stem-cell therapy, a doctor injects a patient’s own stem cells into the damaged area, where the stem cells can regenerate new tissue to replace or repair damaged tissue. Similarly, PRP therapy injects platelets from the blood into the injured area. Platelets stimulate healing, and PRP therapy stimulates stem cells to promote the body to heal itself. 
  • Physical Therapy (PT): PT is used both as a standalone and rehabilitative therapy for spinal patients. In some cases, patients can relieve back pain solely through non-invasive PT. Strengthening and toning specific muscles and reordering how a person performs particular actions can sufficiently reduce stress on the spine to minimize or even eliminate pain. In post-treatment cases, PT is an integral part of the healing process, helping patients to regain strength and suppleness.
  • Back & Joint Optimization: Finally, there are other ways to address back pain and health problems that promote spinal issues, including losing weight, getting fit nutritionally and physically both pre-and post-surgery, and managing degenerative conditions like arthritis.

Axis Spine Center is one of the medical specialties that fall under the umbrella of Northwest Specialty Hospital, with its vast array of healthcare resources for patients in the Inland Pacific Northwest.
