The spinal column is a bony structure that protects the spinal cord and supplies your body with structure and support. The spinal column is basically divided up into three major sections, the Cervical (neck region), the Thoracic (center portion of spine) and the Lumbar (lower back region). Each section is made of individual bones called Vertebrae. Damage to the spinal column can limit your ability to bend, walk or stand. Our physician treats a wide variety of spinal conditions with non-surgical and surgical treatments. Treatment may include exercise plans, physical therapy, medication and surgery when necessary. Our physician will help determine the best treatment for your condition. Our board certified orthopedic surgeons are trained to diagnosis and treat many common fractures. This includes injuries to the upper extremities, pelvis, and lower extremities. With the assistance of our in office x-ray, your broken bone can be closely monitored for signs of healing while a full time casting technician assists with the placement of casts, splints, or other immobilization devices. If appropriate, our physician will ensure that you get the surgical care that you need to appropriately recover from your injury.
