Our 3 Step Process to Alleviate Pain

At Key Spine Care, we focus on ACTIVE over passive treatment plans and proudly and exclusively only offer 1:1 care (e.g. no assistants or PTAs, just you and the doctor for the entire appointment, every time). We work together as a team to implement our shared plan to treat and prevent your symptoms.

Step 1: RECOVER From Pain & Limitations

After we have determined your individual diagnosis, we create a comprehensive and individualized plan to help you resume doing what you love - without the use of rest, pills, injections, or surgery!

After this stage, you will have:

   1. Eliminated the source of the pain
   2. Found pain-free postures

Step 2: REBUILD Proper Mechanics & Address Root Cause

We work together as a team to implement our shared plan to develop healthy posture and movement patterns.

After this Stage, you will have completed exercises to address any needs in:

   1. Motor Control
   2. Stabilization
   3. Mobility

Step 3: REDEFINE Future Performance & Prevent Recurrence

We teach Self-Care Methods to make your body stronger and more resilient so that there is a much less likely chance of recurrence.

After this Stage, you will have a toolbox of movements and knowledge to address:

   1. Strength & Conditioning Exercises
   2. Work or Sport-Specific Tasks

Goal of ALL Our Treatment Plans

While we love our 1:1 time with our patients, we also do NOT want you to be locked into a never-ending treatment plan of 2-3 visits per week for life! Most of our treatment plans are 12 visits or less as we prioritize teaching you how to:

  • Eliminate the cause of the pain
  • Find pain-free postures
  • Develop healthy posture and movement patterns

Journey back to wellness

What a difference he has made! Dr. Elahi’s methodical way of understanding his patients and needs and the plan and exercises he recommended have served me well. Everything suggested for making the journey back to wellness has worked — now, I am pain free in my shoulder and my knee is back to normal.
