Spine Conditions


The Dignity Health Neurological Institute of Northern California can help you enjoy freedom of movement again. Attend one of our informational events to learn more about the treatment options.

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. Common conditions include:

  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal fractures
  • Spinal deformity
  • Spinal tumors
  • Scoliosis
