John A. Ledington, M.D.

Physiatrist, Non-surgical Conservative Treatment of Spinal Pain

He specializes in non-operative treatment and interventional procedures for back and neck pain. He also has involved himself with the American Academy of Pain Medicine, the American Association of Electrodiagnostic Medicine and the International Spinal Intervention Society.

PM&R, or Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, is a sub-specialty within the Spine and Pain Center where Dr. Ledington practices. His goal is to decrease pain and enhance function, without surgery. Dr. Ledington treats a wide range of painful nerve and muscle conditions, impairments and disorders for their patients. He takes time to accurately pinpoint the source of an ailment, often through an EMG test – which can help him determine the right treatment plan. Care usually incorporates multiple medical therapies to enhance and restore function and quality of life back to the patient. He is careful to recommend customized treatment and therapies around each patient’s lifestyle and/or specific needs.

Dr. Ledington and his wife Deb, enjoy the outdoors, mostly by biking and skiing the backcountry. They also spend time with their two Labradors, Henry and Zoe.
