I had been looking for relief from my chronic back pain that had me walking bent over nearly parallel to the ground, for over 20 years. Other doctors did the same procedures the others did, put me on the same medication and said that was all there was to be done short of fusing my back. Not wanting to do something so radical, I resigned myself to my walker, cane and wheelchair. Then I found Pain Zero. I am now walking perfectly straight, unassisted; something I never thought I'd ever do again! Please contact Pain Zero and start your own journey back to a normal life again!! I cannot say enough about this wonderful practice. Call them today!!

I've been coming here for 4 months now after trying to manage my back pain issues with every other treatment and medicine that my previous specialists offered from May 2022 until Nov 2023. In these 4 months I've had more improvement in mobility and pain relief than i did in all of 2022 and 2023. I've also seen a significant weight loss from being able to move better, cook my own food, and work again. Pain Zero also offer medicine when needed between procedures and more importantly they listen to the issues you're having and provide safe and effective pain relief. I wish I would have came here 2 years ago when my issues first started, but I'm thankful to have found a great doctor and pain management center now. Why I would suggest Pain Zero over a place that rhymes with Northo Oro for spine and neck issues through my personal experience. (Dr. C and his orthopedic team at "Northo Oro" are awesome!) I feel Dr Taif at Pain Zero listened to my issues and concerns with the pain and offered options he felt was best for me. I was very hesitant after many short lived & underwhelming procedures at the other places. Pain Zero offers all the same out patient surgical procedures as the bigger ortho centers. The difference in that is the big centers have around 30 people on staff and PZ has about 5. So the costs of the procedures are far less and you don't have an audience in the room either like the other place.

About Us
How common is back pain?

Back pain is the leading cause of disability for people younger than 45, affecting millions of Americans (almost 80%) at some time in their life. Typically, back pain is developed between the ages of 30 – 50 and is frequently the result of an injury, a sedentary lifestyle, and the effects of aging.

When should you see the doctor for back pain?

Most back pain is not a sign of a serious condition, even though the pain can be intense. However, when back pain is severe and persists for weeks without improvement and interferes with work, daily activities, and sleep or is accompanied by fever, numbness, weakness, pain that shoots into the legs, unexplained weight loss, or trouble urinating, it is recommended that you see a physician.

What are some ways to prevent back pain?

There are several easy things you can do to reduce and/or avoid back pain, including using proper lifting techniques, strengthening the core with regular exercise, stretching and doing spinal release exercises, quitting smoking, avoiding a sedentary lifestyle, and maintaining a healthy weight.
