Sudden neck and back injuries can result from everyday movement and activities. Carolinas HealthCare System offers orthopedic care to treat these delicate areas of the human body.
Irritation, strains and injuries to various areas of the spine can produce back and neck pain, including:
- Irritation to the large nerve roots that run down the legs and arms
- Irritation to small nerves inside the spine
- Strains to the large back muscles
- Injury to the disc, bones, joints or ligaments in the spine
Treatments for neck and back problems range from physical therapy and medications to minimally invasive radiologic procedures. When the spine is injured and its function is impaired, the consequences can be painful and sometimes disabling.
The physicians and staff at Carolinas HealthCare System work with patients and their families to improve the quality of life for individuals with spinal disorders through innovative approaches to diagnosis, treatment, research and education.
