- Cervical Spine Disease is the breakdown of the intervertebral discs that cushion the vertebrae in the neck and is the most common cause of neck and radiating arm pain.
- Thoracic Spine Disease refers to the degeneration of the shock-absorbing intervertebral discs that cushion the vertebrae in the upper and middle back.
- Lumbar Spine Disease in the lower back, refers to a syndrome in which age-related degeneration on a spinal disc causes low back pain.
- Collapsed Disc will destabilize the spine and hinder the discs’ ability to protect vertebrae and cause a disc to collapse or lose height. As we age, natural disc degeneration can cause discs to tear or slip out of place.
