Spinal Conditions

Most people suffer from neck or back pain during their lifetime and a high percentage of our patients have these types of problems. Conditions may vary from simple lower back or neck pain caused by over strain of the spinal joints, muscles and soft tissue structures, to more problematic disc injuries which can sometimes be associated with referred pain into the limbs, giving arm or leg symptoms. This is commonly referred to as 'slipped disc', 'trapped nerves' or 'sciatica'.

spinal injuries

Spinal conditions can be caused by adverse stresses and strains in work, sport and day to day life or poor postural habits and manual handling techniques. The severity of spinal pain can vary enormously, ranging from mild aching to very acute nerve root pain which can often incapacitate a patient for some time.

Careful management of each condition is required in order to maximise recovery. Thankfully, the vast majority of spinal injuries will recover, given time and the correct conservative treatment / management.
