Spine issues may develop for many reasons, including injuries and degeneration (arthritis). Patients most often complain of pain in the back and/or neck which can sometimes travel down the legs or arms. Some patients may also develop numbness or tingling in the legs/arms, or even weakness. Common spine issues include:

  • Stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal/nerve openings)
  • Herniated Discs
  • Spondylolisthesis (instability/slippage of one or more vertebrae)
  • Deformities (abnormal curvatures of the spine)
  • Fractures
