Spine & Back

Any spine specialists can tell you that the spinal column is a very important part of the human body, supporting our bodies and making motion possible. A spine specialist can also tell you that back pain is the #2 problem driving people to visit their doctor and that 80 percent of Americans will experience lower back pain at least once in their lifetime. Couple this with the fact that back pain is the leading reason for missed workdays for people under 45, next to the common cold. With so many complications arising within such a crucial part of the human body, itís essential to treat your back and spine with extra care.

There are various motives to why back pain occurs in so many people. Spine specialists agree that being overweight, having poor posture, excessive stress on the spine, smoking, eating a poor diet, and other health conditions are some of the most common causes. The most common cause of back pain, however, is age.

Experiencing any of the symptoms below could be a clear indication that you should visit a spine specialist.

  • Trauma Induced Pain
  • Neck and Shoulder Pain
  • Bowel & Bladder Dysfunction
  • Numbness & Weakness
  • Radiating Pain
  • Back Pain (long term or short term)
