Do you need to see a specialist?

Neck and back pain making things uncomfortable? Complete our Back and Neck Pain Assessment to see if it’s time to see a Norton Leatherman Spine provider.

Our board-certified and fellowship-trained specialists have extensive experience treating the spine, which means they know what surgery can do — and when it isn’t necessary. Most of our cases don’t require surgery, and for those that do, we consider nonsurgical treatments first.

Anti-inflammatory medications, steroid injections, ice, heat, massage and physical therapy can improve function and reduce pain. Although these alternatives will not cure any spinal disease or condition, they can help relieve your symptoms.

If you have these symptoms, you may be a candidate for nonsurgical spine treatments:

  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica caused by a herniated or bulging disc
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Facet syndrome
  • Spinal stenosis
