The right diagnosis allows our physicians at NYC Spine Surgeons to determine what is the best possible treatment. Our diagnosis methods could identify:

  • Herniated and bulging discs

A bulging disc is a condition in which the nucleus (inner portion) of a spinal disc remains contained within the annulus fibrosus (outer portion), unlike a herniated discia in which the nucleus leaks out of the disc.

  • Alignment of the spine

Diagnosing the posture of the spine and defining if it is in the properalignment of the body between postural extremes. A deviation from vertical results in abnormal lateral curvature of the spine is called scoliosis.

  • Degenerative disc disease

Disc height and hydration is reviewed to determine signs of degenerative disc desease.

  • Compressed, pinched nerves or sciatica

Pain affecting the back, hip, and outer side of the leg, caused by compression of a spinal nerve root.

  • Spinal abnormalities

The term “spinal abnormalities” encompasses any extensive variation or deviation from the typical spinal anatomy.

  • Spinal Stenosis 

Spinal stenosis is an abnormal narrowing (stenosis) of the spinal canal that may occur in any of the regions of the spine.
