If back or neck pain is slowing you down, isn’t it time you get back to life? Talk to one of our spine experts. 



Spine Care

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.


At Dignity Health Neurological Institute of Northern California, we understand the importance of an accurate diagnosis for effective spine care. Our comprehensive diagnostic options, including CT scans, spinal X-rays and other available tests, help us precisely identify your condition. With this knowledge, our team of experts collaborates to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique spine condition, physical health, lifestyle and other relevant factors.

Treatment Options

We offer a variety of treatment options to address your spine condition effectively. Physical therapy, steroid injections and medications are among some of the non-surgical approaches we offer. In certain cases, a surgical procedure may be recommended. Our surgical offerings include minimally invasive procedures with the Mazor XTM Robotic Guidance System.

Spinal Conditions

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.
