Your spine plays an integral role in your health and quality of life. When your spine is compromised, whether by deformity, degeneration or a spinal tumor, the pain and disfigurement can be devastating. The spine is the structure that encloses and protects the spinal cord, which is the bundle of nerves that transmits signals from the brain to the rest of the body. It consists of a stack of bones (vertebrae, the sacrum and the coccyx) and the discs separating the bones.

Common diagnoses for spine problems include spinal tumor, scoliosis or other deformity.

Texas Health Resources has a multidisciplinary team of experts who can quickly and effectively diagnose the source of spine problems and provide you with a range of treatment options. Texas Health has spine specialists on the medical staff who can perform advanced surgeries, as well as make recommendations about other treatments. Many Texas Health hospitals offer rehabilitation services with advanced equipment and experienced therapists.
