Spine

The spine experts at Great Lakes Orthopaedic Center provide comprehensive assessment and treatment for back injuries and disorders, serving patients throughout Northern Michigan. Because the spine is essential to both mobility and strength in the human body, many people experience some kind of back or spinal pain during their lives, often in the lower lumbar region. Having a board-certified orthopaedic physician, physician assistant and physical therapist close by is vital to an effective recovery.
