Michael Wolff, M.D.
Medical Director

“My goal in establishing Southwest Spine & Sports is to provide a single source for comprehensive nonsurgical treatment of injuries and painful conditions. I do this because I believe everyone deserves to have access to solutions that will help them enjoy an active, productive life without pain caused by back, neck or joint pain. The ability to offer people in my community this specialized care makes my practice extremely rewarding.”

Dr. Wolff describes his work as a physiatrist for PHOENIX Magazine.
