Dr. Scheid treats a broad range of spine issues using advanced technology and a patient-first attitude. These include:
Most people will recover quickly and completely following a concussion; others may have symptoms that last for several weeks before gradually getting better. Some people, however, will require further treatment.
Degenerative disc disease is a common condition among aging adults that refers to the process of degenerative changes that occur in the discs – the soft, gel-like cushions between the vertebrae of the spine.
Failed back syndrome doesn’t necessarily mean your surgery truly “failed” in the medical sense; it may have been that the surgery uncovered unknown issues that resulted in more pain.
When a disc is herniated, it may bulge and the jelly-like interior could leak out through a tear, or the bulge may press against or pinch a nerve.
Spinal cord injury can either result in a bruise (also called a contusion), a partial tear, or a complete tear (called a transection) in the spinal cord.
Spinal stenosis of the back is usually a slow process that occurs over years results in thickening of the ligaments, formation of bone spurs, and deterioration of the disc material.
Spinal trauma occurs when the spine is damaged from a blow or cut, typically caused by car accidents, falls, or sports injuries, which result in a fracture to the vertebrae.
Tumors that grow within the spinal canal or within the bones of the spine are rare but are a serious health risk that should be promptly treated.
