About Our Practice

Kansas City Spine Specialist, Glenn Amundson M.D. helps people recover from their back pain in a variety of ways, each individualized to the patient. A multi-modality conservative care treatment philosophy is a priority. Each customized patient treatment program requires the active participation of the patient to be successful. Surgery is not considered unless the patient proves refractory to a complete course of non-operative treatment.

Our unique approach to treat low back pain:
Non-operative therapy
Patient recovery in over 90%, without surgical treatment
Only 2 to 3% of people with back pain have herniated disk
1 % have compression of nerve root

The evaluation of back pain requires a physician experienced in this problem. Our work-up at Heartland Hand and Spine begins with a detailed history and physical examination. Your physician will ask about the quality of the pain, where it radiates, factors which worsen or alleviate the pain and other questions. The physical examination concentrates on motor and sensory function.
