Spine

Our physicians will carefully walk you through each step of your care, but many patients find it helpful to have a general understanding of their neck and back before they arrive at the clinic. This section helps provide a basic overview of spinal anatomy, which will help define some of the terminology your physician may reference during your visit.

The spine serves three main functions: 

  • Promote flexibility
  • Provide balance and allow for a long, upright structure of the body
  • Protect the spinal cord and nerve roots

The spinal column consists of four regions. Each region serves a different purpose and can sustain different kinds of injuries:

  • Cervical
  • Thoracic
  • Lumbar
  • Sacral
