Conditions & Services

Some of the many conditions we treat include:
Spinal cord compression occurs when pressure is placed on the spinal cord. It can occur anywhere from the neck to the lower back and lead to symptoms such as pain, weakness, numbness, and loss of bladder or bowel control.
Tumors that form in the brain can cause a wide variety of symptoms, making it potentially challenging to determine whether they may be the cause of certain medical problems.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that can cause symptoms such as tingling, numbness, and weakness in the hand, particularly affecting the thumb, index finger, and middle finger.
Spinal tumors form in the spinal cord or spinal column. They are categorized by their location in the spine.
Malformation of the head and neck is a type of congenital condition that prevents the structures of the head and neck from developing normally.
A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that transports blood to the brain becomes blocked or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts.
Spinal stenosis occurs when pressure is placed on the spinal cord and its nerves due to the a “small” spinal canal.
Sciatica causes mild to severe nerve pain, as well as burning, electric, or other sensations, throughout the lower back, buttocks, hips, and down the legs.
