What We Specialize In

Lumbar Spinal Stenosis - Lumbar spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal as it runs through the lower back. Like other spinal conditions, it’s usually a product of wear and tear, but it can be caused by trauma or a congenital disorder. 

Scoliosis - Scoliosis is an unnatural sideways curvature of the spine, generally in the shape of an S or a C. As this curve worsens, it can cause severe back pain and general fatigue. 

Spine Pain - Lower back pain can be caused by a number of conditions, from traumatic fractures to scoliosis. Treatment largely depends on the diagnosed condition, but symptoms can generally be addressed without surgery. 

Herniated Discs - A herniated disc is the product of a tear in the outer ring of an intervertebral disc, which is a cartilaginous structure that connects the spinal vertebrae. When a disc is herniated, its exposed center begins to protrude through the outer ring, placing pressure on surrounding nerves. 

Sciatica - Sciatica is a pain, tingling, or numbness in the lower back, buttocks, and legs. Though not a medical condition in and of itself, it’s a common symptom of other orthopedic disorders.
