Back, Neck, and Spine

The spine is the body’s main structure, providing support and flexibility that allows you to move, turn, sit, stand, twist, stretch, and bend over. From the base of your skull to the tip of your tailbone, the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar regions of the spine are a complex arrangement of vertebrae, discs, muscles, nerves, and ligaments.

POA spine surgeons focus on the proper diagnosis and treatment of neck and back conditions, whether through spine surgery or other treatments. Neck pain and back pain, caused by a spinal injury or disorder, can make simple tasks a challenge. Our spine experts can help alleviate neck and back pain.

POA spine specialists played an integral role in the development of The Spine Center at Valley Medical Center. The Spine Center, located next to our Renton location, is dedicated to the care of patients undergoing cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine surgery.

If you currently live with acute neck or back pain, talk to your primary care physician about a referral to POA Spine Services or call POA at (425) 656-5060.
