Slipped disc Specialist

Slipped disc treatment

The London Spine Unit specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of Slipped disc. Our Specialists are trained in the recognition of symptoms caused by Slipped disc. The best investigation for this condition is an MRI scan as this shows the structural damage that can be caused by Slipped disc.

If you have been diagnosed with Slipped disc then you should seek a specialist second opinion on the best treatment options as untreated Slipped disc can lead to more serious problems including nerve damage, persistent pain and immobility.

Our Location

We are based on the Prestigious Harley Street and our clinic is fully equipped to diagnose and treat Slipped disc

 

More details about Slipped disc

Spinal disc herniation is an injury to the cushioning and connective tissue between vertebrae, usually caused by excessive strain or trauma to the spine. It may result in back pain, pain or sensation in different parts of the body, and physical disability. The most conclusive diagnostic tool for disc herniation is MRI, and treatment may range from painkillers to surgery. Protection from disc herniation is best provided by core strength and an awareness of body mechanics including posture.[medical citation needed]

When a tear in the outer, fibrous ring of an intervertebral disc allows the soft, central portion to bulge out beyond the damaged outer rings, the disc is said to be herniated.
