Degenerative changes in the spine can constrict the spinal canal, leading to the development of back and leg pain, numbness in the legs and reduced mobility.
At Schoen Clinic, our team of spinal experts specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of all aspects of back diseases, brought on by wear and tear, or other causes. Whether conservative treatment or surgery – we will always advise on the right treatment for you.
Aftercare: smooth return to everyday life
It is very normal to experience some level of discomfort/pain after the surgery. The experienced nursing and medical staff at Schoen Clinic will help you to control this with appropriate medication. The symptoms in your legs may fluctuate due to increased swelling around the nerves. This can take a few weeks to settle. The ward physiotherapist will visit you after your operation to teach you exercises and help you out of bed. They will show you the correct way to move safely. Once you are confident and independently mobile, you will be encouraged to keep as mobile as possible.
