Spine is a stack of little bones called vertebrae along the center of your back, from your seat to your neck. It supports your head, shoulders, and upper body. Your spine plays another key role: The vertebrae make a tunnel for your spinal cord. That’s the set of nerves that connect your brain to most of your body. Depending upon the severity and extent of problems there are various treatment options available. Deciding whether or not to undergo surgery, is a difficult decision, especially when the surgery involves your spine. Bowel or bladder problems related to the spine are considered an emergency; this alone is a good reason to have spine surgery.
Progressive or severe weakness in one or more limbs is also a reason to consider spine treatment. “Drop foot,” “clumsy hands,” “legs giving way” are all very concerning and could represent partial paralysis. A life-crushing debility from the pain associated with a spinal condition that is not responding to all the treatments you’ve been throwing at it or being bedridden and unable to participate in daily life in a meaningful way are definitely reasons to consider spine treatment. Spine Treatment helps you move around better, be more physically fit, reduces the amount of pain medication required and helps you be more productive at work and in general.
