Conditions & Treatments in Adults

Beacon Spine Care offers full care from diagnosis through physical therapy. Comprehensive care, close to home for your spinal conditions, including:

Back Pain

Back pain can range from a muscle aching to a shooting, burning or stabbing sensation. Beacon Health offers a comprehensive program to treat back pain with physical therapy, physiatry, and pain interventionalists. Most adult patients with back pain do not require surgery.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spaces within your spine, which can put pressure on the nerves that travel through the spine causing pain. To correct this issue, the spine specialists at Beacon Health can perform Cervical Artificial Disk Placement, anterior and posterior surgery, or spinal fusion.

Degenerative Disk Disease

When a spinal disk slips out of place or degenerates with age, it can cause pain or “pinched nerves.” Beacon Health can treat cervical, thoracic and lumbar disk disease and herniated disks. We offer minimally invasive decompression therapies (laminectomy, diskectomy) as well as spinal fusion.

Conditions & Treatments in Children & Adolescents

A growing child or adolescent has very different needs in spinal care than adults. Featuring one of the only pediatric neurosurgeons in the state of Indiana, Beacon Spine Care is prepared to care for your child in a comfortable environment close to home. We are able to evaluate and treat many spinal conditions - often with non-operative therapies, including:

Pediatric Scoliosis and Kyphosis

Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine. Kyphosis is an exaggerated, forward rounding of the back. In infants or teens these issues are most often due to malformation of the spine. Beacon Health’s pediatric spine specialists provide both nonoperative management and corrective surgical treatments.

Pediatric Disk herniations

Spinal disk herniation, also known as a slipped or herniated disk, occurs when the soft center of a spinal disk pushes through a crack in the vertebrae. A herniated disk can irritate nearby nerves and result in pain, numbness, or weakness. Treatment most often requires medication and physical therapy.

Pediatric Spinal Care

Growing children have a completely different spinal anatomy than adults. The pediatric spine specialists at Beacon Health can evaluate your child’s specific issue and provide a wide range of surgical & non-surgical treatments for congenital spine lesions, trauma, hydrocephalus and more.
