Press release submitted by Trinity Bettendorf

Trinity Bettendorf will host a free neck pain screening from 4-7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 28, to help people determine if they are a candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery. The screening is ideal for those who experience pain or numbness down one or both arms, experience chronic neck pain or have been diagnosed with cervical degeneration or cervical stenosis.

Participants will have a neck pain screening and a brief evaluation with Dr. Michael Dolphin. Based on your results, an X-ray may be necessary. If an X-ray is needed there will be a $20 charge and a follow-up consultation will be scheduled. Screening participants who have had an X-ray or MRI recently may bring a copy of the films and/or report with them.

Trinity Bettendorf is located at 4500 Utica Ridge Road, Bettendorf. Call (563) 344-9292 to register.
