Neuroscience and Spine

The spine is made up of 33 bones—and every single one plays a key role in helping us stand, walk, and move. And when it comes to matters of the spine and brain, West Tennessee Healthcare has you covered.

The Spine Care You Need to Get You Back to Living Without Pain

About 31 million Americans experience some level of back pain at any given time. And that’s just one aspect of spine care. Through the West Tennessee Healthcare Neuroscience & Spine Center, patients have access to diagnostic services and treatment for a full range of spine-related concerns, including back pain, issues with the sciatic nerve, spinal stenosis, and herniated discs.

Lifesaving, Brain-saving Stroke Care

Beyond Providing treatment for spine health, the West Tennessee Neuroscience & Spine Center also offers comprehensive care for brain-related issues, including the prevention and treatment of stroke.

When a stroke occurs, every minute that passes can lead to the irrevocable loss of brain tissue. That’s why prompt care is essential. We partner with the West Tennessee Heart and Vascular Center to ensure patients receive the emergency care they need to halt a stroke and the care they need to regain abilities after the stroke.
