Where to start

Meet Our Back, Neck & Spine Care Experts

See all

Back pain is one of the most widespread health problems, affecting four out of five Americans in their lifetime. The spine is an interdependent system of 33 vertebrae, more than 100 joints, 120 muscles, 23 discs, and more than 220 ligaments. So when something goes wrong within that system, the hundreds of nerve fibers and countess nerve endings are quick to alert you.

Conservative care – Helping you avoid surgery

Summit’s leading spine specialists diagnose the full spectrum of back and neck problems and design custom neck and back treatment plans built on a non-surgical approach. We leverage conservative methods such as guided injections, specialized physical therapy, biofeedback, exercise, activity modification, and medication.

In fact, 87 percent of our spine patients are successfully treated with conservative therapies that do not involve surgery. In the few cases where conservative care is no longer managing your symptoms, fellowship-trained spine surgeons are here to consult with you and discuss appropriate surgical options.

Achieve your goals for a more active lifestyle

Whether you are looking forward to carrying your grandchild without pain, lifting at work again without restrictions, or completing shoulder checks in the car without a second thought, we are here to help make it happen.
