Spinal/Bone Therapies

For people with spinal conditions or injuries, everyday activities can result in significant pain. Spinal/bone therapies offer pain relief and minimally invasive alternatives.

For Herniated Disc

People with a herniated disc may experience neck pain, radiating arm pain, shoulder pain, and numbness or tingling in the arm or hand. A cervical disc replaces the entire damaged disc and is designed to maintain motion in the neck.

For Scoliosis

For people with scoliosis, or abnormal curving of the spine, daily life can be painful and normal activities may be limited. A spinal system is designed to correct an abnormal curvature in the spine.

For Degenerative Disc Disease

As you age, or as the result of an injury, your intervertebral discs can lose their flexibility, elasticity and shock-absorbing characteristics, which may cause back or leg pain, tingling or numbness in your legs or buttocks, or difficulty walking. The recommended course of treatment for this condition – degenerative disc disease – may be spinal fusion surgery. Spinal fusion fuses the spine with bone you regrow on your own, eliminating the need for the additional bone-harvesting surgery required with some spinal fusion surgery.

For Spinal Fractures

A spinal fracture (vertebral compression fracture) occurs when one of the bones in the spine fractures or collapses. Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that can repair spinal fractures.

For Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is a condition caused by narrowing of the spinal canal, which can result in nerve compression that causes pain. An interspinous spacer is a minimally invasive implant designed to alleviate painful symptoms.
