The spine plays an integral role in the majority of body movements, offering supportive strength and enabling a full range of flexibility. Any injury to the spine may result in debilitative pain or disabilities, impacting the ability to sit, lift and complete other basic movements. Our board certified spine surgeons at Flathead Orthopedics will assess the type and degree of spine damage present and offer a tailored recommendation for successful correction and ongoing care.
Types of Disorders
Back or neck pain can result from a range of causes, including overexertion, disease, genetics or traumatic injuries. The specific symptoms and level of physical disability experienced will vary in accordance with the type and severity of the condition present. Frequently treated forms of spinal injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Spinal stenosis
- Disc herniation
While minor spinal irritation may be treated by noninvasive measures, more advanced conditions may require surgical intervention for optimal symptom recovery.
