A True Medical Pioneer in the Treatment of Spine Pain

There are many different back and neck conditions that have presented to Dr. McCord during his lifetime of medical practice as a "Spine Specialist".  However, a few problems occur most commonly.

To keep this informational site from becoming encyclopedic and overwhelming, it will concentrate on explaining basic spine anatomy and the more prevalent spine abnormalities.  However, Dr. McCord's practice is in no way limited to just these basic issues, and he evaluates and treats many other conditions.  

Information about back and neck problems and treatment options not addressed here but which are specifically pertinent to individual patients are generally explained in the office in the same manner as the more common ones.


Hopefully, those viewing this site will get a glimpse into Dr. McCord's bedside manner.  He feels it is of utmost importance that each patient understand his/her spine condition.  At times visual aids such as illustrations, spine models and the patient's specific test studies may be used to explain in layman's terms diagnostic and treatment options. 

Dr. McCord believes that his successful outcomes can be attributed in part to mutually respectful relationships with ease of interaction, understandable explanations and realistic expectations.  Each patient is treated for their individual uniqueness, whether they have a commonly seen problem or one less often diagnosed.  Dr. McCord's compassionate care exemplifies that patients are more than just a number or a diagnosis.
