How to know whether you require bad back treatment or a spine specialist?

Eight in ten people will have back pain at some point in their life, making it one of the most common medical conditions. Back pain can range in intensity from a persistent, dull ache to an abrupt, searing pain. Acute back pain typically lasts a few days to a few weeks and appears quickly.

Although some people use the terms ‘back’ and ‘spine’ interchangeably, they refer to different areas of the body. Your back (or ‘dorsum’) is the large posterior area of your body, from the back of your neck to the top of your buttocks. The major bones beneath the surface are your spine and your scapulae (shoulder blades).

Your spine is the column of vertebrae and other parts that form the central support structure of your body. Also known as your backbone, it connects various parts of your musculoskeletal system and plays a role when you stand, sit, walk, bend and twist.

What are the parts of the spine?

It’s no secret that the spine is complex, comprised of many different parts. The different parts of the spine include:

  • Vertebrae – A stack of 33 vertebrae creates the spinal canal, which contains your spinal cord and nerves.
  • Spinal cord and nerves – Your spinal cord is made up of many nerves, 31 pairs of which extend out from the cord, passing through the neural foramen (openings in the vertebrae).
  • Intervertebral discs – The intervertebral discs are fibrocartilage cushions that are the main joints and shock absorbers between your vertebrae.
  • Soft tissue – Your vertebrae are connected by ligaments, whereas your muscles are connected to your bones by tendons. The soft tissue and muscles in your back provide support for your back and play an important role in movement.
  • Facet joints – The facet joints contain cartilage, a slippery and flexible connective tissue that lets vertebrae move against one another without causing damage.

Injuries and other problems that affect your spine, spinal cord and/or back can cause pain as well as other issues.

Due to the nature of the spine, it’s important that you go to see a spine specialist for your assessment and treatment. As leading spine experts in London, you can rest assured that every part of your journey with us, from trustworthy diagnoses to excellent treatment for various back and spine conditions, is world-leading.

What are the different types of back and spine problems?

Given the complexity of your back and spine, it’s relatively common to experience back pain or problems. Relatively common back and spine problems and conditions include:

  • Arthritic conditions – Arthritis is the inflammation of the joints due to wear and tear or other causes.
  • Back sprains and strains – A sprain is the stretching or tearing of a ligament in the back. A strain is a muscle or tendon injury. This could be considered a sports injury or one sustained in normal daily life.
  • Bone spurs – Sharp edges on vertebrae that affect the nerves and spinal cord.
  • Herniated discs – Also known as a slipped disc, the condition can be caused by injury or wear and tear. The gel centre of the disc may be pushed all the way to the outer ring. We also treat spinal fractures and other spinal cord injuries.
  • Osteoporosis – A condition that causes the bones to become brittle and weak.
  • Pinched nerves – Caused by bones, muscles, cartilage or other tissue placing too much pressure on a nerve. We also treat sciatica, spinal stenosis and other nerve injuries.
  • Spine curvatures – Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine forms a sideways curve. This is normally first identified at childhood but can cause issues later down the line.
  • Spine tumours – Tumours are growths that develop in your spinal bones or spinal cord.
  • Spinal stenosis – Spinal stenosis is where spinal nerve roots become compressed by narrowing of the spinal canal. We can treat this condition with various treatment methods, not just surgery.
  • Degenerative spondylolisthesis – As we age, our vertebrae may slip, causing back and leg pain. Our team of spine specialists will help to relieve pain and improve your daily life.

However, this list is not exhaustive. If you’re experiencing back pain that’s affecting your quality of life, book an appointment with one of our spine specialists to discuss the best bad-back treatment for your needs.

Getting treated at our private London back and spine clinic

Whether you visit our private back pain and spine clinic in London or any of our other locations, the process generally follows these 5 simple steps;

1. Getting started
If you’re self-funding treatment, you can just book an appointment directly. However, it’s always best to speak to your GP or physiotherapist, if possible, as a referral will provide your Consultant with useful information about your medical history. Patients using health insurance always need a referral as a requirement from their insurance company.
2. Book an appointment
Just call our team on 020 4571 9572 to help find the most appropriate expert and convenient appointment or you can contact us using our online form.
3. See a Consultant
Discuss your symptoms, diagnosis and treatment options with the Consultant of your choice. If diagnostic investigations are required, such as an x-ray, MRI, CT scan or blood test, we can usually organise for these to take place on the same day, if possible (additional charges will apply).
4. Treatment begins
If further treatment is recommended, this will be arranged as soon as possible after your consultation at a time to suit you.
5. Aftercare
After your procedure, we provide extensive aftercare and recovery to help get you back on your feet as soon as possible.
