Neck pain is common but needs evaluation if it is associated with:

  • Radiating pain to the arm or hand
  • Weakness of the arm or hand
  • Sensory disturbance/sensitivity of the arms and legs
  • Arm or hand clumsiness or numbness

When left untreated, a neck condition or injury can cause further damage, and you could be left dealing with chronic pain, weakness or numbness. Specialized treatment should be sought to ensure that a proper diagnosis is made.

About Capital Region Spine

The specialists at our multi-disciplinary spine center are fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopaedic surgeons, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, and nonsurgical spine specialists. We offer the full spectrum of nonsurgical and surgical treatment of spinal disorders, encompassing degenerative and deformity conditions, trauma, tumors, and infections. In addition, minimally invasive surgery to allow same-day surgery and motion-sparing techniques using disc replacements are often possible should surgery be necessary.

Capital Region Spine, located in Albany, New York, with satellite offices in Catskill, Clifton Park, Latham, Malta, Saratoga, and Schenectady, is a regional spine center specializing in back and neck problems. It currently receives some of the most complex cases of back and neck pain from across the state. Capital Region Spine is able to care for any type of back or neck problem, from the simple back or neck strain all the way to the most complex spine surgery.

How we're unique

What makes Capital Region Spine different from other treatment centers is its nonsurgical approach to back and neck problems. Most spine treatment centers are directed by surgeons who favor the use of spine surgery. Capital Region Spine includes fellowship-trained orthopaedic spine surgeons, physical medicine doctors who help patients with nonsurgical treatments, sports medicine specialists, and spine-specialized physical therapists. These specialists have advanced training in the treatment of back and neck pain and are successful in helping people return to activity—without surgery.

Capital Region Spine takes a multidisciplinary, team approach to spine care, involving both surgical and nonsurgical spine physicians. This team of professionals works together to develop the best treatment for each patient. We provide all the necessary diagnostic testing and treatment in one place—eliminating the need for multiple referrals, delayed care, and overall confusion. 

If surgery is needed

Sometimes, surgery is the best treatment option, especially for those suffering from herniated discs, spinal fractures, spinal deformities, spinal tumors, and scoliosis. However, it is estimated that over half of back surgeries performed are unnecessary, and in some cases, even counterproductive. At Capital Region Spine, surgery is used as a treatment option only after nonsurgical treatments have been exhausted. When surgery is necessary, our Capital Region Spine surgeons are highly trained and proficient in the latest minimally invasive techniques for spine surgery.
