 Upper Back

Experiencing excruciating back pain can hinder your body from allowing you to live the life you want. When nonsurgical treatments for back pain fail, one trip to Howell Allen Clinic will bring you back to your normal speed in no time. Surgical procedures to correct any upper back pain you may be experiencing are determined by what is the root cause of the pain. This typically involved removing what is causing the pain and then fusing the spine back together once it is removed. Removing the tissue will help decompress your spine, while fusing it back together will aid in the stabilization process.

Middle Back

Although a fairly uncommon area to injury or experience pain, middle back injuries can cause significant pain and discomfort when they do occur. The most common occurrence of pain in this region comes from muscle-related overuse or compression fractures. Many times, surgery in the thoracic spinal region (area from below the neck to the abdomen) is needed if there is a fracture, spinal stenosis, herniated disc, or severe scoliosis. 

 Lower Back

Our physicians do an excellent job of diagnosing lower back issues and seeking out the best course of treatment. Most lower back procedures are either an attempt to decompress whatever is pressing on the root of a nerve or to fuse the spinal column together for stability. Our physicians will provide you with the best quality of care possible to get you back on your feet quickly.
