Patient referrals

Is your patient experiencing symptoms of a spinal disorder? Symptoms such as back pain, pressure in neck, head, or back; weakness, incoordination or paralysis in any part of the body; numbness, tingling or loss of feeling in hands, fingers, feet or toes or a loss of bladder or bowel control - please give us a call.

Damage from the outside of the spinal cord is caused by compression or injury of the spinal cord. This could be due to a bone fracture, spinal degeneration or abnormalities. 

From simple back aches to more complex spinal deformities, Dr. Karen Myung will care for virtually all pediatric spine medical conditions.
