Your Spinal Health

A widely perpetuated myth, says that when people throw out their backs, they do it in one single lift that throws the entire spine out of place and causes immediate and vicious pain.

While this can happen all at once, the majority of back problems are caused over years of stress to the spine and spinal column. This being said, spinal health is something everyone should be considering each day of their lives. "Just as bone health and density should be monitored, so should spinal health," says Deuk Spine Institute, a leader in minimally invasive spine surgery.

It is not only heavy lifters and athletes that need to worry about spinal health, all of us need to take care in this area. For office workers, sitting in one spot for up to 12 hours per day may just seem like it gives you a little back ache at the end of the day, but this ache can quickly spread into a more serious concern as it turns into a bulged disc, or herniated disc.

Get in today to have your spine checked for status and risk factors you may need to monitor. If your spinal health is in serious condition, contact Deuk Spine Institute to find out if minimally invasive laser surgery is an option.
