Spinal disease treatment

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

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

More details about Spinal disease

Spinal disease refers to a condition impairing the backbone.[1] These include various diseases of the back or spine (“dorso-“), such as kyphosis. Dorsalgia refers to back pain. Some other spinal diseases include spinal muscular atrophy, ankylosing spondylitis, lumbar spinal stenosis, spina bifida, spinal tumors, osteoporosis and cauda equina syndrome.

There are many recognized spinal diseases, some more common than others. Spinal disease also includes cervical spine diseases, which are diseases in the vertebrae of the neck. A lot of flexibility exists within the cervical spine and because of that, it is common for an individual to damage that area, especially over a long period of time. Some of the common cervical spine diseases include degenerative disc disease, cervical stenosis, and cervical disc herniation. Degenerative disc disease occurs over time when the discs within each vertebra in the neck begin to fall apart and begin to disintegrate. Because each vertebra can cause pain in different areas of the body, the pain from the disease can be sensed in the back, leg, neck area, or even the arms. When the spinal canal begins to lose its gap and gets thinner, it can cause pain in the neck, which can also cause a numb feeling in the arms and hands. Those are symptoms of cervical stenosis disease. The discs between each vertebra have fibers that can begin to deteriorate, and this can occur in cervical disc herniation. This disease is less common in younger people as it is usually a function of aging.[2]
