Spine Services

Back pain is a common complaint, affecting millions of individuals each year. It can derive from any number of causes, ranging from easily treatable conditions such as a minor strain or muscle spasm to more complex conditions involving pinched nerves, degenerated, herniated, or slipped discs, and spinal cord injury. Those who suffer from it know back pain can manifest in a variety of ways, from low intensity aches to sharp, debilitating agony. Those living with chronic back pain frequently experience a variety of secondary issues, including loss of mobility, sleeplessness, pain medication dependency, isolation, depression, and decreased quality of life.

Individuals whose severe back pain cannot be treated with medications, exercise, chiropractic treatment, or physical therapy may be candidates for spine surgery. The Spine Team at Pinnacle Regional Hospital specializes in many treatment options designed to mitigate back pain and aid patients in resuming their everyday life activities. Both our spine surgeons are well-versed in workers’ compensation cases as well.
