We've Got Your Back!

Please join us for Spine Talks!, a LIVE webinar series on spine topics you need to know.

This is a free educational program of the Mayfield Foundation to help you learn about the inner workings of your back, new emerging techniques and technologies in spinal care and the ways in which we heal.

We've asked our team of neurosurgeons and physical therapists at Mayfield Brain & Spine to lend their expertise in a series of 1-hour webinars.

The programs are held monthly at 6pm. See the schedule of upcoming talks below. Grab a snack and a notebook and sign up for one, two or all of the webinars--free of charge! You will have an opportunity to ask questions and have them answered in real time.

The Best Exercises to Protect Your Back

Back pain results when the spine is stressed by injury, disease, wear and tear, or poor body mechanics. Acute low back pain is abrupt, intense pain that subsides after a period of days or weeks. It typically resolves with rest, physical therapy, and other self-care measures. Learn good and bad exercises for the aging spine to prevent pain.

My Aching Back! Prevent Back Pain and Know When It's Time for Surgery

As you age, the spine begins to show signs of wear and tear as the discs dry out and shrink. These age-related changes can lead to arthritis, disc herniation, or stenosis. The good news is 80% of people with neck and back pain get better with nonsurgical therapy. Learn when surgery may be needed and how minimally invasive techniques can shorten recovery.

Mind the Curve: New Treatments in Correcting An Abnormal Spinal Curve

Adult scoliosis and kyphosis can occur when the facet joints and discs deteriorate over time and are unable to support the spine's normal alignment. Like the game Jenga, when a block is removed from the tower, other blocks can become off balance. Spine deformity can also be caused by past spine surgery. Learn about adjacent segment disease, junctional kyphosis, and how spinal curves can be corrected.

Finding Relief: Treating Chronic Back Pain with Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) masks pain signals before they reach the brain. A small device implanted in the body transmits electrical pulses to the spinal cord. It helps people with chronic pain better manage symptoms and reduce their use of pain medications. Learn about chronic pain, the problem with opioids, failed back syndrome, and how SCS may help people find relief.
