Not only does he have a passion for providing the best results for his patients, he is a constant educator. Because of his expertise, he has been an invited speaker and teacher all over the world, lecturing in the United States, Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America. He has taught hundreds of other Spine Surgeons the newest techniques that he practice right here in the Dallas area.

Using imaging studies, drawing, and models, Dr. Kravetz is able to help patients best understand their problems and the options for treatment. And while Spinal Surgery is his specialty, he is really an expert at all aspects of spinal care, including the non-operative therapies. Helping guide patients through these difficult decisions for the best treatment outcome is his passion

When the difficult decision for surgery has been made, the patients can be reassured that their surgeon is a leader in the field in teaching and performing these techniques. From the most straight forward micro-disectomy procedure, to the most complex adult scoliosis reconstruction, Dr. Kravetz has taught and performed these techniques and procedures for years. Techniques to minimize tissue damage while accomplishing the necessary surgery are always the goal. These techniques have clearly been shown to minimize blood loss in patients, lower the infection risk, require shorter hospital stays, require less post-procedure pain medicine, and lead to faster return to activities. These techniques allow Dr. Kravetz to more safely treat patients with diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, the elderly, and those with more complex medical conditions

5 Great Morning Stretches

People always say that a good night's sleep is the best recipe to wake up in the morning feeling fully refreshed, but for many people who suffer from morning back pain, that scenario may seem like just a dream. For those who do have back pain, there may seem like no end in sight, but luckily, there are some great stretches you can do in the morning that'll eliminate your pain and have you feeling great for the rest of the day. Let's take a closer look at the top five best stretches for morning back pain: The Erector Spinae Stretch (lower back) This is a great exercise to use if you're having a lot of pain specifically in your lower back region. For the erector spinae stretch, you'll want to lay on your back and then pull one of your knees up towards your chest. Grasp it firmly with both hands, and then bring the remaining knee up and hold both of them close to your chest while relaxing. The Pelvic Tilt Stretch Another great exercise is the pelvic tilt stretch. For this one, lie on your back and tilt your knees so that your lower back is raised off the ground. You'll then want to tighten your abs in such a way that the small of your back will lay flat against the surface. Hold this position for around five seconds. Do this at least three times, but you're working towards around nine to ten overall repetitions. The Supine Hip Flexor This is a great stretch that's also easy to do early in the morning. Simply move on over to the edge of your bed and let your leg dangle down. Hold this for about one to two minutes before switching to the other side of the bed and doing the same for your other leg. The Piriformis Stretch (Glutes) This is a great stretch to alleviate both leg and back pain. Stay on your back and move one leg over the other one while pulling the knee up towards your chest until you feel a stretch in your behind. Hold this for 30 seconds and then switch to the other leg. The Hamstring Stretch The final stretch we'll mention here is the hamstring stretch. Stay on your back and raise your leg up while trying to keep it straight. Use both hands to hold your upper leg for support. Hold this position for five seconds a piece on each side. These are certainly not the only methods out there, and the very best way to get true pain relief is by consulting a professional. Living in pain is not something you just have to "deal with;" it's a real problem that can be helped by real physicians.
