Kingsway Financial Spine Centre
We are dedicated to excellence in spine care. Our aim is to give early assessment, diagnosis, and treatment to individuals suffering from spine disorders that have lasted less than 6 months (“acute” disorders).
We treat many conditions, including:
- Stable spinal fractures
- Post operative back pain
- Mechanical back pain (lasting less then 6 months)
- Identified disc pathology (i.e. disc herniation, disc bulge)
- Back pain that is not yet diagnosed (lasting less then 6 months)
96 per cent of patients surveyed rated our quality of care as “very good to excellent”.
Relieving the Pain
Back pain takes a toll on a person’s physical and emotional well being. It is the most common cause of disability in people under the age of 45. Trillium Health Centre opened the Kingsway Financial Spine Centre in May 2005 to help patients’ physical and emotional recovery through evidence-based practice.
A First for Canada
Our state-of-the-art, 9000 square foot space is the first facility of its kind in Canada. We have is the only program in Canada where orthopaedic and neurosurgeons work together, along with a dedicated rehabilitation team.
Designated, in-house slots for the Centre’s patients help to reduce wait times for MRIs, CT Scans and X-rays, speeding diagnosis and treatment.
Award Winning Spine Care
Trillium Health Centre was awarded the 3M Health Care Quality Team Award for providing excellence in spine care across the continuum, including the work of the Spine Centre.
Educating Our Community
It’s better to prevent spine injuries before they happen. We have an area dedicated to back care education, the prevention of spine and back disorders, and wellness for you and your family.
In 2008, we held our first community education evening. These sessions help the general public learn about back pain and how to obtain the necessary treatment.
In an effort to promote learning and innovation in spine care, the Spine Centre hosts a Spine Symposium annually for health care professionals.
