Large Enough to Care for You, Small Enough to Care about You
Patients and families choose hospitals and providers for many reasons. It’s no surprise that quality of care tops the list.
What is surprising is when top-quality care is combined with convenience and comfort at the highest levels — especially in a small community. That’s an experience beyond expectations.
Waverly Health Center surpasses the level of care one would expect to find in a small town. The breadth and depth of services make it convenient for you to remain close to home, avoiding the stress of traveling for your care.
It all works out to a rare combination: We’re big enough to care for you, but small enough to care about you.
We know you’ll be pleasantly surprised by our friendly, professional staff and comfortable setting.
“The surgery staff were all very accommodating to our family and we never felt rushed. They answered all our questions and gave us the privacy we needed to help comfort Isla. The blanket and bear helped calm her down and made her very cozy and comfy,” Missy stated.
“The care we received from the WHC was exceptional. I had no question that Addyson was in great hands. The staff made our visit as seamless and non-stressful as possible. A big thank you to Miles and his owner, Tracy, for volunteering so much time to positively impact so many people’s lives. Also thank you to the Waverly Health Center for allowing such a great program to exist,” mom stated.
It is estimated that around 85% of adults experience back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain can be broken down into three categories:
Acute: sharp, severe pain; lasts less than 4 weeks
Chronic: pain that is persistent and long-lasting, or constantly recurring over time; lasts more than 12 weeks
Subacute: refers to a medical problem that is not exactly acute or chronic, but rather somewhere in between; lasts between 4 and 12 weeks
Each person may respond differently to the various treatment options based on their cause of pain. Non-medication and medication treatments are available based on the type of back pain that is present.
