Problems with Your Hips

Because the hips feature large bones, many people don’t think of them when it comes to orthopedics. The knees, shoulders, and even the ankles can seem more destined for overuse and damage. Ah, but your hips will let you know when they’re not happy. Don’t let our name, Coastal Spine, fool you. Kevin O’Donnell, our […]


The Success of Fusion Surgery to Solve Back and Leg Pain

You probably know someone who has had back fusion surgery. It has become a very reliable method for addressing chronic pain due to nerve compression that simply won’t respond to other alternative treatments, such as microdiscectomies. You surely know probably the world’s most famous back fusion patient, Tiger Woods. Unfortunately, a recent car crash may […]


Nerve Pain Needs Some Radiofrequency Energy

Nearly 65 million Americans report a recent episode of back pain.

What is a Laminectomy?

The lamina is the back part of a vertebra that covers your spinal canal. When a person has osteoarthritis, the persistent inflammation in the facet joints can create bone spurs on the lamina. These then press on the spinal cord or nerve roots exiting the spinal cord. At Coastal Spine, our three board-certified spine surgeons, […]


That Line of Thinking Could be Hurting Your Back

When it comes to human health, back pain is just about universal — sooner or later over 80 percent of us will have back pain. Who said becoming homo sapiens and getting up off our arms and onto two feet was a good idea? At our four Coastal Spine locations, we see all sorts of […]
