Conditions of the Spine
Your spine is made up of the 26 discs of the vertebrae, which protect your spinal cord and allow you to stand and bend. A number of conditions can cause wear and tear or damage the vertebrae and surrounding tissue, and limit movement. Spinal diseases can cause pain if bone changes put pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. In some cases surgery may be warranted. Our surgeons will closely evaluate your condition and recommend different treatment options, including preventive back care, physical therapy, pain management, or surgery.
