Top-Rated Back, Neck & Spine Care in Sandusky

Back and neck problems make everyday life difficult. This type of pain is extremely common, and many times can be treated without the need for major surgery. Back and neck problems are often caused by compressed nerves, which may result from:

  • Disk problems – disks are the rubbery cushions separating the bones of your spine, and sometimes they can press against a spinal nerve.
  • Overgrowth of bone – conditions like osteoarthritis can cause bone spurs to grow, which can affect nerves in the spine.

Other common reasons for back and neck problems include:

  • Infections
  • Injuries such as fractures (broken bones)
  • Tumors
  • Ankylosing spondylitis – a type of arthritis of the spine
  • Scoliosis – a painful curvature of the spine
  • And more

If you or someone you know is affected by one of these back and neck conditions, it’s time to take action.
