If back or neck pain is slowing you down, isn’t it time you get back to life? Learn how pain impacts your daily activities, and see what factors may be playing a role.
Back pain is typically the first sign of a spine condition. The spine specialists at Mercy Medical Center want to help ease your pain with personalized treatment. Back and neck pain is a discomfort you shouldn't have to live with. Four out of five Americans will have an episode of back pain during their lifetime, and the effects can range from discomforting to debilitating.
The spinal column performs a delicate balancing act every day, providing structural support for your body and a pathway for nerve impulses. There are many injuries or conditions that can compromise the spine's ability to serve without pain.
Patients often endure years of chronic pain before seeking treatment, even though many conditions are more easily treated in the early stages.
Mercy Medical Center offers comprehensive care for the whole spine, including non-surgical and minimally-invasive treatment options. Even though every diagnosis is different, you’ll find our fellowship-trained spine specialists have you covered—from back to back to back.
If you are scheduled for spine surgery at Mercy Medical Center, we are committed to making your experience comfortable and your recovery as successful as possible. Your surgeon will discuss your spine condition with you, the type of treatment you will receive, and what to expect leading up to and following surgery. You may also utilize this time to ask your surgeon and care team any questions you may have regarding your treatment plan and follow-up care.
