Spinal Conditions & Spinal Surgery
The spine is a very complex structure, and inevitably this makes it susceptible to many potential conditions during one’s lifetime. These include age-related degeneration (a form of arthritis), physical damage following an injury or accident, infections and even tumours. Most problems with the spine are not serious but prompt diagnosis in some cases is essential.
Spinal problems can manifest themselves in many ways, from pain in the lower back or neck, to arm and leg pain and weakness.
Whilst simple back pain is usually at worst moderately severe and self-limiting, for some it becomes a debilitating condition that can affect their quality of life. Left untreated, this can significantly affect your day-to-day life.
Arm or leg weakness, constant pain in the spine or bladder problems may be the sign of a more serious condition, and usually demand prompt investigation & diagnosis.
