Back Based Procedures
What can happen with my back?
Intervertebral discs are soft cushion-like structures which sit between each bone (vertebrae) in the spine. They act as shock absorbers as well as allowing normal movement between the bones in your lower back.
The annulus is the toughest part of the disc, and connects each vertebral bone. The soft and juicy nucleus of the disc serves as the main shock absorber. In degenerative disc disease the discs or cushion pads between your vertebrae shrink, causing wearing of the disc, which may lead to herniation. You may also have osteoarthritic areas in your spine. This degeneration can cause back pain.
Pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in the legs may result from pressure on the spinal nerves. If you currently feel any of these symptoms, set up a consultation with us as soon as possible.
See below for procedures I perform in order to get you back to a normal pain-free life. Schedule a consultation to learn more about your surgical (and non-surgical) options and take control of your health.
