The spine is made of 33 bony vertebrae, along with spinal discs, tendons, ligament, fluid, and your spinal cord. When something goes wrong with any one of these parts, you can develop a spine condition or injury. Back pain is typically the first sign of a spine condition. The spine specialists at Mercy & Memorial Hospitals 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.
