New clinic is open for back as well as neck discomfort High Point Enterprise

HIGH POINT Novant Health has opened a new spine clinic in High Point to help patients who suffer from ongoing back as well as neck pain.

The aim of the newly opened clinic Novant Health Spine Specialists-HighPoint, located at 1226 Eastchester Drive, is to offer the most up-to-date non-surgical treatments along with pain relief therapies to help patients get back to their normal functioning and back to their normal routines, Novant said in a press announcement. The clinic will treat patients suffering from many different ailments, including those suffering from persistent joint pain that lasts for a long time at the neck back as well as hips and knee.

Although surgery might be suggested for certain patients Novant states that the new facility will be working with each patient to create an appropriate treatment plan. This could include referrals to rehabilitation therapy, pain injections, or a minimally-invasive procedure.

The staff at the clinic includes the Dr. Anuj Shah, who is an interventional pain management physician who is an anesthesiologist with board certification, and Christine Zdeb, an adult-gerontology nurse practitioner who is specialized in the management of pain.

“For the majority of us we aren’t aware or maybe take for granted how much we depend on our spine for support throughout the day,” Shah said. “That is, until the pain becomes a problem in our daily activities. The goal of the brand new facility is to target the root of the pain and assist our patients to get back on their feet.”

Novant Health Spine Specialists in High Point will see patients Tuesday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. To schedule an appointment, call 336-481-8670 or visit
