Spine Conditions

At Resurgens Orthopaedics, our expert spine physicians treat a variety of back and neck conditions.

The spine is 33 individual vertebrae forming a column connected by joints for motion and discs separating them to provide for weight bearing and torsion. The spine is designed to be incredibly strong, supporting the structures of the body and protecting the highly sensitive nerve roots of the spinal cord. The spine is also highly flexible, providing for mobility on different planes.
