National Spine Centers Offer Innovative Non-Surgical Alternatives

CORAL GABLES, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 1, 2007 -- Luis E. Crespo, M.D., founder and director of the Tampa, Florida-based Crespo & Associates, P.A., one of the first medical facilities in the country to specialize in breakthrough non-invasive therapy for neck and back pain, announces the March 5, 2007 opening of the National Spine Centers, located at 312 Minorca Avenue in Coral Gables, FL.

The National Spine Centers is a full-service medical facility at the forefront of modern medical care and treatment of comprehensive injuries, rehabilitation and pain management. The center features a multidisciplinary team of professionals dedicated to non-surgical treatment of the acutely and chronically injured patient and uses the most advanced techniques available to increase physical activity and resumption of daily activities, work and sports. The center's pioneering "Crespo Technique," a non-surgical pain solution that utilizes core strengthening apparatus and spinal decompression therapy, has a 90% success rate among patients, including weekend warriors and professional athletes.

"With the opening of our Coral Gables facility and our unique approach to treatment and rehab, results are closer than ever before for South Florida patients who live in pain," states Dr. Crespo. "Pain is the number one under-treated medical condition in the United States. Back pain is one of the leading causes of disability costing Americans $26 billion in healthcare costs. Less than 10 percent of these patients are surgical candidates and our innovative, state-of-the-art centers offer an effective solution to pain management in an environment where we're concerned with the entire physical condition of the patient."

Dr. Crespo is a diplomate of the American Academy of Pain Management with more than 20 years of medical experience. Inspired by his 13 years as Medical Director of Emergency Medicine in the Tampa Bay (FL) area, with an interest in injury trauma and a love of neurology and orthopedics, Dr. Crespo began his clinical practice for comprehensive injury care and rehabilitation in 1996 and expanded to include pain management in 1998.

The National Spine Centers - Coral Gables, is open Monday through Friday 7:30am to 7:30pm, features bilingual staff members and offers a variety of financing options.
