The spine is the central support system of our body. It is needed for almost all movements of the body. It also protects the spinal cord, which transmits our brain signals to all parts of the body.
The spine is made up of a total of 24 vertebrae, the sacrum and the coccyx. Between the vertebrae are the intervertebral discs, which serve as a kind of “buffer” for the vertebrae to cushion strong movements. To ensure stability and mobility of the spine, the spine is surrounded by numerous muscles. The back muscles, which are responsible for posture, are located in the depths. The muscles above direct the movements of the body.
Back pain is the second most common reason for patients to see a doctor after a cold. Therefore, it is particularly important to deal thoroughly with diseases of the spine.
We are particularly dedicated to the diagnosis of spinal disorders, such as:
- Intervertebral disc disease
- Narrowing of the spinal canal
- Vertebral fractures due to trauma or osteoporosis.
The decisive factor is the conscientious examination of each individual case with regard to the disease pattern at hand. An intensive diagnosis is the most important prerequisite for developing a sensible and goal-oriented therapy concept. The conservative non-surgical measures should be exhausted first; a premature decision to surgical therapy is not desirable and is no longer the standard nowadays.
There are a few symptom complexes that indicate surgical therapy, but in most cases, especially with the famous herniated disc, a good conservative non-surgical therapy concept can bring very good results.
Interventional pain therapy of the spine
With modern imaging (full digital X-ray) and a special treatment concept of interventional X-ray-guided infusion therapy, we can treat our patients for acute and chronic spinal complaints.
