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
