Cervical, Thoracic, & Lumbar Disorders
We treat many spinal disorders of the cervical (neck), thoracic (mid back), and lumbar (low back). This includes degenerative disc disease, which is the wear and tear of the bone and/or soft tissues of the spinal structures. We also treat spinal stenosis which is the narrowing of the passages through the bony spine which allows the spine and nerve roots to exit, and spondylosis which is a degenerative change in the vertebra (bone) and zygapophysial joints of the spine. Spondylolisthesis is a slippage of one vertebra forward or backwards against the vertebra either below or above it. Other spinal conditions treated are scoliosis, the postsurgical spine, ankylosing spondylosis, and sciatica (please see neurological disorders).
