Back and spinal conditions
At any point in our lives, we could suffer from some kind of back pain or spine problem. This area of our body is often put under immense strain and pain in this area of your body can be aggravated by poor posture, bad lifting techniques, inadequate stretching before or after exercise or a high BMI. However, there are also conditions that are less preventable, including rheumatism, bone deterioration, osteoporosis or osteoarthritis. Similarly, birth conditions like scoliosis (curvature of the spine) or spinal stenosis.
We offer a complete orthopaedic treatment – whether for a slipped disc, a fracture, tumour or sciatica, our highly experienced orthopaedic specialists, back and spine surgeons and physiotherapists will be on hand to offer you the diganosis and treatment you require throughout every stage. Our surgeons are supported by the latest diagnostic imaging technology, which may include MRI scanning, ultrasound or x-ray meaning we can provide a rapid diagnosis of your back and spine condition or injury.
Once a diagnosis has been made, our specialists will suggest any treatment you may need. This could include conservative management techniques 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.
Our team also works side by side with musculoskeletal physiotherapists who can help with rehabilitation to get you back to maximum flexibility and movement in the shortest possible time.
*Please note that you will need a GP referral letter to be able to use most of our services.
