  • Pain that radiates from the neck to the arm/hand
  • Pain that radiates from the back to the leg/foot
  • Pain that increases in the back, leg, or foot with standing or walking and is relieved by sitting
  • Pain following heavy lifting, especially if you have osteoporosis
  • Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms or legs
  • Nerve or dexterity problems in the arms and hands
  • Numbness or tingling in one or both legs
  • Weakness in a specific area of the leg or arm
  • If associated with incontinence, go to the emergency room

Our spine doctor at Lewiston Orthopaedics understands that damage to the spinal cord is not only disruptive, but also potentially devastating to those affected. Spine conditions and injuries should be examined by a spine specialist for prompt and proper diagnosis.

Our spine doctor, Dr. Gregory Dietrich, considers surgical treatment options only after nonsurgical methods have proven to be unsuccessful. If surgery is necessary for you to obtain the best results, our spine doctor will use the safest and latest surgical methods proven to restore function and mobility.
