Your back is a complex structure of highly sensitive nerves, small joints and discs, as well as tendons, muscles and tissue. A problem with any one of these components can cause back pain. Most people have back pain at some point in their lives. Fortunately most back problems typically improve without surgical intervention.
Because of the complexity of the human back, treatment may sometimes require specially trained experts in sports medicine, neuroscience or orthopedics. Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento offers pediatric and adult back and spine care, using advanced diagnostic tools and the latest surgical, nonsurgical and complementary treatments.
Options for care can include therapeutic, non-surgical therapy, minimally invasive procedures or spinal surgery if less invasive treatments haven’t helped resolve your back pain.
Surgeries are performed by board-certified neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons who specialize in conditions of the neck, back and spine.
Pediatric back and spine specialists at Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento provide specialty care to children with conditions including scoliosis, spina bifida and congenital abnormalities.
