LEARN MORE about our non-surgical cervicalgia treatment. If cervicalgia is diagnosed on time and depending on the patient’s general health, surgery interventions –which would be very risky and ineffective– can be avoided.
The best lower back pain treatment is the one that comprehensively takes into account the patient’s health. Several techniques and medicine can be used, but the most important factor is the personalization of the treatment.
The difference between a herniated disc and cervical herniated disc is the location: the former appears on the back, while the latter appears on the neck. Even if both constitute the same injury in general terms (hernia), the symptoms are different.
There are several risks when it comes to a spine surgery, and it’s important for you to know all about them if you’re resorting to this kind of surgery. Most of the spine surgeries are aimed at remedying a herniated disc. Please find more information about this injury at the end of this post.
It is possible to cure a herniated disc without surgery. Take a look at this information if you’re looking for alternative medicine treatments instead of a conventional surgery, which poses several risks and the outcomes are not always as expected.
Usually, these kind of malformations are progressive and lead to congenital scoliosis at an early age. They are also prone to produce different degrees of deformities, for which early surgeries are required.
Vertebral pathology is an important part of pediatrics. It comprises congenital and neuromuscular malformations visible in children, idiopathic scoliosis and adolescent kyphosis. The anticipation of these illnesses, especially at early stages, is particularly important to provide a proper treatment.
Spondylolysis refers to a malformation in the vertebra, in the back of the neural arch, in the pars interarticularis, as the level L5 is the most commonly affected (85 to 95% of incidences), followed by level L4 (5 to 15% of incidences).
Sacral fatigue fractures are an unusual cause of low back pain in athletes. Its prevalence is unknown, and while female are more vulnerable, sacral fatigue fractures have also been reported in male patients.
The interrelationship between the intervertebral disc and low back pain remains unknown. The high number of reported degenerated lumbar discs in asymptomatic patients is evidence against the cause-effect relation.
Practicing sports is the fourth cause of spinal cord injuries. About half of sports-related spinal cord injuries lead to quadriplegia, and the consequences for affected patients are therefore significant.
The lumbar canal is the space inside the spine through which the spinal cord crosses, which ends in a spot leveled with the first lumbar vertebra. A set of nerve roots comes off from there and lays out all along the lumbar canal.
Plantar fasciitis refers to the swelling of the dense connective tissue located in the sole of the feet and is attached to the heel (aponeurosis or plantar fascia). The purpose of this ribbon is to tighten the sole of the foot by holding the plantar curvature, and reduce the impact that results from the movement on the sole of the foot.
Radioculopathy is the injury of a nerve root that comes from the spinal cord, which stretches from the base of the encephalon to the lumbar region (low back), and is covered by canal made of jointed bones, the spine.
There are several pine surgery procedures, from minimally invasive to sophisticated surgeries. Among such, the most common are: discectomy, ligamentoplasty, total arthroplasty of intervertebral disc and transpedicular instrumentation of the spine.
Gonarthrosis consists of arthrosis (degenerative joint disease) in the knee joint. It is distinguished by a progressive loss of articular cartilage and reactive changes in the articular margins and subchondral bone.
Those of us who have undergone any kind of surgery know that the downside is not the many hours it might take, but the previous and subsequent corresponding procedures, many of which we rarely consider.
