What We Specialize In

Herniated Disc - A herniated disc is caused by a tear in the outer ring of an intervertebral disc, which forms a cartilaginous cushion between the bones of your spine. The disc’s center protrudes into the surrounding tissue, often leading to irritation in nearby nerves.

Cervical Radiculopathy (Pinched Nerve) - Cervical radiculopathy occurs when repeated stress causes a nerve to become compressed. This often leads to pain in the neck and upper back and a feeling of numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms.

Muscle Spasms - A muscle spasm is an involuntary contraction of a muscle accompanied by sharp pain. This condition is common in the neck, and may be caused by sudden trauma or sitting or sleeping in an awkward position.
