Spine Conditions

Spine Conditions

Lumbar and Thoracic Instability We offer multiple treatment options for instability of the spine.

For instability of the spine, a general term for abnormal movement between vertebrae, we can explore nonoperative options, such as physical therapy and medication, as well as surgery when needed.

Spinal Surgery Complications Our team works together with you to formulate an individualized treatment plan.

If you’re experiencing ongoing pain from an unsuccessful surgery for back pain, or a “failed spinal surgery,” we can explore newer treatment options. The cause of failed spinal surgery may include:

  • Post-surgical complications
  • Recurrence of original cause
  • Nerve root compression or irritation
  • Scar tissue
  • Nerve damage or abnormal regeneration
  • Improper, inadequate or incomplete rehabilitation

Thoracic Spinal Stenosis We determine the source of your pain, accurately diagnose the severity of your condition and choose the least-invasive treatment.

After diagnosing you with a physical exam and imaging tests, we can offer medication, physical therapy, braces and/or surgery to relieve pressure and pain from thoracic spinal stenosis, a rare degenerative condition in which the spinal canal is narrowed in the upper middle back.
