Our Approach to Care

Key Spine Care provides primary spine care in Frederick, Maryland, with a focus on self-care to guide patients in taking care of themselves. The team at Key Spine Care take a holistic, full-body approach to care.  

Disorders and Treatments

A primary spine practitioner (PSP) serves as the primary provider for patients who have spine-related disorders (SRDs), like neck pain, back pain, and sciatica. The goal of treatment is to provide SRD patients with all the care they need without additional tests or referrals to specialists unless absolutely necessary. 

The PSP maximizes efficiency by ensuring specialists and surgeons only see patients needing their specific skill set. This approach to SRDs benefits patients by keeping conservative care at the forefront of their treatment plan, and that they have one health professional managing all of their care.  

The team at Key Spine Care provides innovative therapies for SRDs that ease pain and support the body’s natural healing process, including physical therapy and dry needling.  

Key Spine Care is also a chiropractic and rehabilitation center, offering treatments such as McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT), Cox Flexion Distraction Technique (Cox® Technique), and instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM).
