When to see a spine specialist
Many common aches and pains can be managed with ice, heat and over-the-counter medications. However, it can be beneficial to consult with a spine specialist for back pain relief and spine problems that persist and prove these household remedies ineffective.
Suppose you are experiencing chronic pain that begins in the back and travels down your legs, weakness or tingling sensations in your legs, unfamiliar neck pain or any spine problems that make everyday activities difficult. In that case, it may be time to consider getting looked at by one of our spine experts.
