Back and neck pain can limit how you move and may affect every area of your life. We treat all conditions that cause back and neck pain. Highly trained experts take the time to listen to your unique issues and concerns so they can create the best treatment plan for you. Our goal is to provide relief and get you back to enjoying life quickly.

Back and neck conditions we treat

We treat a wide range of conditions and injuries related to the back and neck, including:
  • Cervical radiculopathy (“pinched nerve”): Occurs when pressure is applied to a nerve close to tissues such as bones, discs or ligaments.
  • Compression fracture of the spine: Broken bones in the spine that may occur due to aging.
  • Degenerative disc disease: Back and neck pain caused by wear and tear of a spinal disc.
  • Facet joint disorder: Facet joints allow us to bend and turn our spines. This disorder happens when cartilage inside a facet joint breaks down and becomes inflamed, causing pain.
  • Failed back surgery syndrome: This is the condition of patients who have ongoing pain after back or spine surgery.
  • Herniated disc: Also called a slipped or bulging disc, occurs when the soft center of a spinal disc pushes through a crack in the tough exterior casing.
  • Sciatica: Nerve pain from an injury or irritation of the sciatic nerve. This can cause pain down the leg.
  • Spinal cord injury: Damage to the spinal cord usually caused by a sudden, traumatic blow to the spine.
  • Spinal stenosis: Condition where spaces in your spine become more narrow. This puts pressure on the nerves that travel through the spine.
