What is Spine or Neck Surgery?
When people experience pain in their neck, mid- or lower back, spine and
neck surgery can repair damage to alleviate pain.
When to Consider Spine or Neck Surgery?
- If you've
tried other methods/treatments to alleviate spine and neck pain without
headaches, shoulder, leg and arm pain keep you from everyday activities
- When bone
spurs, ruptured disks or vertebrae pinched nerves cause pain
After every surgery, recovery and rehabilitation are important steps for
every patient to take. At Kaweah Delta, patients will work their orthopedic
surgeon and staff members at Kaweah Delta Rehabilitation Therapy Services to
begin an exercise program that will help them regain range of motion and return
to their favorite activities.
If you are considering spine or neck surgery, speak to your primary care
physician. For a list of orthopedic surgeons call Kaweah Delta's Information Center
