At the WESTMED Spine Center, we evaluate and treat a wide variety of conditions that affect the back or neck, including muscle strains, pinched nerves, herniated discs, arthritis and spinal stenosis.
Very often, medication combined with physical therapy will provide relief from the pain. This conservative approach gives your body a chance to heal by calming down inflammation and strengthening the muscles that support the spine.
In the event that you do need surgery, our board-certified spine surgeons are trained in the latest minimally invasive procedures that will address the cause of your back or neck pain. With less pain after surgery, and a shorter recovery time, so you can take back your life.
