Specialities Neck & Spine
Neck and Spine
There are many demands placed on both the spine and neck. The spine protects the spinal cord, gives support to stand and the flexibility to bend and twist, while the neck supports your head and the movements it makes. Miller Orthopedic Specialists is dedicated to helping patients with all spinal disorders and neck pains. Back and neck pain can vary from patient to patient and one of the most important things to understand is a diagnosis with symptoms is crucial. You can have the appearance of one problem, but no symptoms. This would change how your diagnosis and appointments would go. It is important to listen to a spine specialist to discuss all of your options and try to determine what the best treatment method would be. We treat things from acute, minor injuries to chronic problems. Our orthopedic surgeons understand your needs and will do their best to help give you a list of options and help you truly gain an understanding of your problem and ways to potentially resolve some issues, whether it be through physical therapy, a chiropractor, surgery, or some other method. Back pain can slow you down and our goal is to help improve your quality of life so you can get back to the everyday activities you love. Some of the common conditions we treat are lower back pain, spinal stenosis, and sciatic pain, as well as herniated disks and arthritis. Our spine and neck specialist, Dr. Pedro A. Ricart, is a fellowship-trained Orthopedic Surgeon.
