When spine pain goes away, life takes it place

Chronic or severe back pain can keep you from doing the things you love most. At Northern California Spine Institute, we don’t just provide treatments for pain relief, we strive to get patients back to living the lives they love.

That’s our commitment to our patients:

  • To get you in quickly (we always have time for new patients)
  • To provide you with the most advanced treatments available – surgical and non-surgical options
  • To minimize the time you spend under anesthesia, lessening risks and speeding recovery
  • To be with you at every stage, whether you need diagnostic imaging tests, steroid injections, physical therapy, surgery or all of these and more

Spinal pain causes and treatments

Spine problems and back or neck pain in adults can have a variety of causes – from a spinal cord injury to degenerative disc disease that occurs over time. Arthritis can even cause adult scoliosis – a curvature of the spine that is screened for in childhood.

At Northern California Spine Institute, we work with you to determine the cause of your pain and determine the best treatments to get you back to doing the things you love. Advanced treatments of the cervical (neck) and/or lumbar (lower back) spine include:

  • Minimally invasive spinal surgery
  • Spinal reconstructive surgery
  • Revision surgery
  • Treatment of spinal compression fractures
  • Therapeutic spine injections
  • Spinal fusion and interbody fusion
  • Disc replacement
  • Laminectomy
