Conditions We Treat

Center for Spine Care

At the Center for Spine Care, our experts treat all conditions of the spine, including:

  • Cerebral palsy: A brain disorder that affects the body’s movement, muscle control, coordination, reflexes and balance.
  • Cervical spine instability: Excessive movement caused by weak, loose or abnormal bones and ligaments in the neck.
  • Chiari malformation: A problem with how the brain sits in the skull.
  • Cranial-cervical disorders and syndromes such as:
    • Down syndrome: A genetic disorder that leads to medical issues, including potential spine trouble.
    • Klippel-Feil syndrome: Vertebrae (bones) in the neck region of the spine that did not separate properly before birth, reducing range of motion.
    • Neurofibromatosis: A rare genetic disorder that causes growths and benign tumors of the nerves.
    • Skeletal dysplasia: A genetic defect that prevents the child’s bones from growing normally.
  • Disc degeneration: The spinal discs that cushion the vertebrae (bones) in the spine wear down.  
  • Disc herniation: The discs that cushion the vertebrae move out of place, putting pressure on the nerves, causing pain, numbness or weakness.
  • Fractures of the spine: Broken vertebrae (bones) in the spine.
  • Kyphosis: The bones in the spine curve forward, causing a rounding of the upper back.
    • Cervical: An abnormal forward curve in the neck region of the spine.
    • Scheuermann’s disease: An abnormal forward curve in the upper back region of the spine.
    • Thoracic: An abnormal forward curve in the spine between the neck and abdomen.
  • Rotary subluxation: A misalignment of the vertebrae that puts pressure on the nerves.
  • Scoliosis (including revision surgeries): A deformity that causes the spine to curve sideways
    • Congenital: An abnormal spine curvature due to an issue the child was born with.
    • Early onset: An abnormal sideways spine curve found in children under age 10.
    • Idiopathic: An abnormal spine curve that develops for no known reason.
    • Neuromuscular: An abnormal spine curve that develops because the child cannot control muscles that support the spine due to muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy or another medical condition.
    • Syndromic: An abnormal spine curve that develops due to a disorder that affects numerous parts of the body.
  • Spina Bifida: A condition in which the spinal cord did not form correctly in the womb.
  • Spinal stenosis: The spinal canal narrows and pinches the nerves.
  • Spondylolisthesis: A vertebra that moves and slips out of place causing pain.
  • Syringomyelia: A cyst filled with fluid forms within the spinal cord.
  • Traumatic injuries to the spine
  • Tumors on the spine: An abnormal growth of tissue in the spine.
  • Vascular malformations: A mass or abnormal formation of blood vessels in the spinal cord that may cause damage or bleeding.
