Types of Back Problems

“I’ll see both patients with benign and malignant spine conditions. So, patients with benign spine conditions will come in from just vague back aches or more severe pain that is keeping them up at night,” says Theresa Pazionis, Orthopedic and Spine Surgeon at Miami Cancer Institute.

According to Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist at Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, some people will become early patients, because they suddenly develop back problems and other people can suffer from traumatic fractures, for example, from sports.
