Back & Neck

Beating Back & Neck Pain

The spinal column is the master control system of the body.

Together, the neck, upper back, and lower back form a complex system of muscles, tendons, small joints, bones and nerves. With so many different parts doing so much work, things can sometimes go wrong—and when they do, the first signal is pain.

More than 80% of adults experience significant back or neck pain during their lifetime. The good news is that many treatment options are available. Depending on your condition, many of these treatments can be conservative. But, sometimes surgery, including many minimally invasive treatments, offer the most effective path back to an active and pain-free lifestyle.
