Dr. Joshua Rovner

Spine doctor : There are many types of doctors who specialize in spine. Chiropractors perform non-invasive treatments and if they can not help you then you should see a medical doctor like pain managment or a spine surgeon. Spine surgeons can be either orthopedic surgeons or neurosurgeons.
