With 33 small bones called vertebrae, our spines give us stability, flexibility and movement.
Running from our brains to our tailbone, our spines convey neural messages. The spine’s many critical functions mean that traumatic injuries and diseases can have significant ramifications.
Though it functions as a single unit, the spine has three segments — cervical – or the upper spine, the thoracic – or middle spine and the lower – or lumbar spine.
At New Mexico Orthopaedics, we work with you from diagnosis to treatment options, from physical therapy through surgery and rehabilitation.
We use a multi-disciplinary team approach to the treatment of spinal injuries and conditions. Our team of medical experts can guide you to recovery and health.
