Brain & Spine Problems

Problems with the brain and spine hit at the center of a person’s health and well-being. Some related problems are strikingly common, as sufferers of back and neck pain know. Such pain can range from inconvenient to debilitating and involve the muscles, nerves, discs and other physical and mental components.

Many such difficulties are little more than a painful muscle strain, but it’s important to know the source of the problem. Sometimes a problem is age-related, the result of a sports activity, or points to a hereditary cause. Delaying treatment, however, frequently just makes matters worse. The good news is there are solutions.
