Spine Conditions

Each spinal disorder is unique, and every patient should be thoroughly evaluated using a physical examination, x-rays and imaging studies such as an MRI, a CT scan  or electromyography (EMG) as appropriate.  Understanding the nature of each patient’s pain and symptoms is critical in order to make a sound medical opinion regarding an appropriate individualized treatment plan.  Conservative and non-conservative treatment of neck and back injuries have improved significantly over the past decade due to advancements in medications and minimally invasive surgical techniques and approaches.

Understanding your back pain is the first step in relieving it. Once an accurate diagnosis is reached, your physician can discuss with you the specifics of your condition and determine a treatment plan that will meet your individual needs.
