In interventional orthopedics, we recognize that the body is actually one interconnected machine, not a collection of individual parts and pieces. The cervical spine is a crucial piece in our musculoskeletal puzzle.
There are many problems that can occur in the cervical spine. Some of the more common include arthritis, foraminal stenosis, pinched nerves, disc problems, and spondylosis. We will review some cervical spine problems (some of the links in this report will refer to the lumbar spine, but the principles are the same in the cervical spine) as well as some traditional and interventional orthopedics solutions.
