Your spine is an amazing network of 33 vertebrae, 23 spinal discs, fluid, muscles, tendons, ligaments and your spinal cord — the MVP of your nervous system. Every move you make comes back to your spine in some way or another. That’s why, when it comes to conditions affecting your spine, there’s no such thing as “no big deal.”
Spine problems can have a wide variety of causes, ranging from congenital issues to traumatic injuries to joint diseases. Back pain and neck pain are the most common symptoms of a spine problem, but others may include weakness, numbness, tingling or pain in the arms or legs.
At Andrews Sports Medicine, our nonsurgical orthopaedic specialists and spine surgeons take a team approach to diagnose and identify the best form of treatment for each patient’s unique situation. Our team is extensively experienced with spine issues of all kinds, including:
- Compression fracture of the spine
- Degenerative disc disease

- Herniated disc
- Spondylolysis/lumbar stress reaction
