Common Conditions of the Spine & Neck
The spine, a column that extends from the base of the skull to the tailbone, is composed of 33 vertebrae which are held in place by their muscles, facet joints and ligaments.. Conditions that affect the spine require a deep level of knowledge and understanding of this specific region of the body. Orthopedic specialists are highly trained to help diagnose and treat arthritis, fractures, degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, pinched nerves and other conditions of the spine and neck.
