Expert care for spine conditions in NJ and NY

When you need solutions for your spinal problems, you must first get an accurate diagnosis to find the most appropriate course of treatment. For that reason, University Spine Center offers a library of articles on various spinal conditions designed to help inform you about:

  • Medical names for many spinal conditions
  • Plain-language descriptions of conditions
  • Lists of commonly reported symptoms
  • Typical treatment options

While this section provides general information about conditions, every person is unique. There may be factors that make your condition slightly different than “textbook” descriptions and considerations that may influence your treatment. For that reason, we urge you to use this information as a starting point to discuss with your University Spine Center team. Here’s a list of conditions from our library:
