How we help Case Managers provide better care
Thank you for visiting our webpage about how we can assist you and your clients.
You may be familiar with Dr. Winifred Bragg through one of the webinars or seminars she’s conducted for Case Managers throughout Hampton Roads. If so, you know that Dr. Bragg is an expert in providing non-surgical treatment for injuries and pain resulting from spinal and orthopedic conditions. You also know she is very passionate about Case Managers thinking first about non-surgical treatments before referring a client to a surgeon.
Many Case Managers in Hampton Roads refer their clients to Dr. Bragg at either the Spine and Orthopedic Spine Center in Norfolk or Chesapeake because of their experience and success with her non-operative treatment of spinal and other orthopedic problems. We hope you’ll get to know us and consider us as a trusted referral source too.
“You decide where patients end up,” says Dr. Bragg about Case Managers. “They may need to see an orthopedic or neurosurgeon if non-surgical treatment does not work, but the first stop should be with a non-surgical spine specialist because 90% of the time they can avoid surgery.”
In my earlier years, I too was taught to send clients directly to the surgeon. But times have changed, non-surgical techniques and medicine have improved and pain specialists should be intervening earlier in the process and not waiting to intervene after surgery. – Dr. Winifred Bragg
When your clients have work injuries resulting in disk herniations, neck and back pain, shoulder or knee pain, we hope you will consider Dr. Bragg and the Spine and Orthopedic Spine Center as a first choice for their treatment.

“It was refreshing to hear a board certified physician understand the difference between a drug addicted patient and a chronic pain patient. Dr. Bragg puts together the most appropriate plan of treatment. Her presentation was refreshing in this time of so much narcotic abuse.”
Cynthia Flournoy, Claims Examiner, Fortune 500 Company
“The session given by Dr. Bragg demonstrates the holistic approach that should be taken when
addressing injuries/treatment of the back. She is changing the perception of “pain management”
from the management of pain with prescriptions/narcotics to a program that utilizes all resources
Scott Bitzer, Senior Account Claims Representative, PMA Companies
“Dr. Bragg’s educational demonstration was well organized, informative and pertinent to our jobs as
adjusters. Her professionalism, knowledge and sincere care for patients is readily apparent.”
