Common Spine Issues

Infections

Like tumors and metastatic diseases, infections are rare in the spine, and difficult to diagnose. That said, the physicians at the New Jersey Spine Center consider all possible diagnoses when evaluating a patient for back or neck pain. If an infection is found, treatment might include antibiotics alone, or together with surgery to remove the abscess and devitalized tissue, plus strengthening the integrity of the spinal column if necessary.
