Spine Injuries

Our spine specialist at Shady Grove Orthopaedics is a recognized leader in the diagnosis and treatment of spine injuries, problems, and conditions. The spine is a highly complex and critical component of the human body, protecting the spinal cord while offering strength, structure, and flexibility. The spine’s ability to provide support and mobility simultaneously makes it more susceptible to problems, conditions, and injuries.

Since spine problems can affect virtually any body part, there are a wide range of conditions and injuries, which thereby cause a wide range of symptoms. From cervical spondylotic myleopathy and cervical disc herniations to spondylolisthesis and sciatica, spine pain can be the result of a serious condition.
