Primary Spine Care

At Live Young We Don’t Just Treat The Symptoms, We Help Heal The Body.

CHIROPRACTIC

Dr. Kennedy is a chiropractic physician who has completed his specialty training in primary spine care with the University of Pittsburgh medical school.

Primary spine practitioners receive advanced training in the treatment and management of all facets of neck and back pain. These specialists are equipped with the most effective tools from physical therapy, chiropractic and exercise; to treat most types of back pain. That said, we also are trained to know and identify when patients require a team based approach and require imaging, medication, pain management and even surgery. We work in tandem with other medical specialists to provide patients the quickest recovery with treatment that progresses from least to most invasive.

Currently many patients with back pain are mismanaged. If an initial course of medication and watchful waiting doesn’t solve the problem, they are referred for imaging and then to a surgeon. This often takes weeks to months of consistent pain, only to be told by the surgeon that they don’t need surgery and they should try conservative care. Studies estimate that about 90% of the patients seen by surgeons, are not surgical candidates. This dysfunctional hierarchy costs the patient their normal function and the healthcare system billions.

PSPs are employed in rapid access spine clinics across the world to help patients get to resolution as quickly as possible and reduce the burden of spine pain on the healthcare system. We are proud to be home of the only certified PSP in the Treasure Coast.
