We treat everything from simple to complex spine disorders, including back pain, neck pain, cervical and lumbar degenerative disc disease, cervical disc herniation, spinal tumors, degenerative disc disease, cervical and lumbar stenosis, vertebral compression fractures, degenerative disc disease, scoliosis and deformities. For the majority of patients, we try non-surgical treatments first. Sometimes, treatments are combined to increase effectiveness.
