Back Pain & Spinal Problems
At any stage of our lives we could experience some form of back pain or spine problem. Every day we can put immense strain onto this area of our body and problems can be worsened by bad posture, poor lifting techniques and inadequate stretching before and after exercise. Of course, there are also conditions that are less preventable, including rheumatism, bone deterioration, osteoporosis and chronic arthritis like ankylosing spondylitis that can result in soreness, deformity and incapacity. Similarly, birth conditions like scoliosis (spinal curvature) or pectus excavatum can cause problems.
Even back and spine conditions that are considered mild can drastically affect your quality of life. But we can help, with comprehensive, fast and specialist orthopaedic diagnosis treatment for all kinds of back and spine problems from slipped discs and fractures, to tumours and sciatica.
Our expert team of renowned orthopaedic specialists and nurses, back and spine surgeons and physiotherapists can offer reassurance, peace of mind and support throughout diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care.
In order to offer you a fast and accurate diagnosis, we have access to the latest diagnostic screening facilities, which may include MRI, ultrasound or conventional X-ray scanning.
After a diagnosis has been made, our orthopaedic specialists can suggest what further steps may need to be taken. These could include conservative management methods, such as oral painkillers or steroid injections, to minimally invasive spinal surgery. We also offer corrective surgical procedures for different types of spinal deformities, decompression surgery, disc replacement surgery and kyphoplasty (which repairs painful compression fractures in the spine).
Our team also includes highly trained musculoskeletal physiotherapists who can help you get back to maximum flexibility and movement as quickly as possible.
