Spine Care

More than 80 percent of adults in the United States will experience varying degrees of neck pain and back pain during their lifetime. Fortunately, most of these patients return to their normal activities quickly and respond well to conservative treatments. However, for the minority of patients with an injury or disease of the spine, common activities such as turning, bending, or stretching often become painfully out of reach.

The Anderson Orthopaedic Clinic Spine Center offers state-of-the-art treatment for problems resulting from degeneration of cervical and lumbar discs, herniated discs, decreased nerve function, spinal stenosis, spinal deformity, tumors, trauma and instability. Our goal is to help you quickly return to your activities and to your desired quality of life.

However, arthritis, degenerative wear and tear problems affecting the joints and discs, as well as a variety of other abnormalities can cause back or neck pain, numbness or weakness.
