Common Spine Conditions

Common Injuries of the Spine


When should I consult a spine specialist?


You may be suffering from a spine condition or injury if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: 


  • Radiating pain from the neck to the arm/hand  Radiating pain from the back to the leg/foot

  • Back, leg, or foot pain that worsens while standing or walking and is relieved by sitting

  • Nagging pain after episodes of heavy lifting, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms or legs

  •  Nerve or dexterity problems in the arms and hands

  • Numbness or tingling in one or both legs

  • Weakness localized to a specific area of the leg or arm


Go to the emergency room if these symptoms accompany incontinence. Our spine doctor at Vail-Summit Orthopaedics understands that damage to the spinal cord is not only extremely painful and disruptive to your active lifestyle, but also potentially devastating, as it often restricts mobility and significantly reduces your quality of life.


Our spine doctor is committed to developing customized treatment plans to accommodate your individual condition and get you back to your active lifestyle quickly and safely. Please rest assured, while spine conditions and injuries sometimes require surgical intervention, our spine doctor only considers surgical treatment options after nonsurgical methods have proven unsuccessful.
