Your spine is the foundation for all other parts of your skeletal system. When injured or diseased, the spine can severely lower your quality of life and make going about your day-to-day activities extremely difficult.
Dignity Health Neurological Institute is home to the only Spine Center of Excellence in California certified by The Joint Commission in Northern California.
Here at the Dignity Health Neurological Institute of Northern California, we realize the importance of your spine's health and provide comprehensive spine care in a collaborative environment. We combine careful diagnosis, education, physical therapy, medications and, if needed, interventions such as epidurals or surgical consultation, to get your spine in the best possible shape.
