- Why Choose Sharp?
Using the latest technology for diagnosis and treatment of problems associated with the spine.
Most people will suffer some form of back or neck pain at one point in their lives, with discomfort varying from severe and long-lasting to mild and short-lived. While most back and neck issues can be treated easily, back and neck pain can also be signs of larger, underlying problems that require prompt medical attention.
Serious issues can include degenerative changes of the spine, herniated discs, infections or tumors. Depending on the problem, the symptoms can include sharp or dull pain, difficulty when moving, pain that radiates to one or more limbs and, at times, swelling or stiffness. If you experience any of these symptoms, consult with your doctor.
Most back or neck pain can be treated without surgery. If back or neck pain cannot be relieved by nonsurgical treatment, surgical procedures may be recommended to correct the issue and relieve pain.
