Back Pain & Spinal Problems

Back and spine problems are extremely common and at least some form of back pain can affect any of us, at any age. This area of our body can often be placed under considerable strain and you can be at an increased risk of experiencing a back or spine problem if you have poor posture, do not use a correct lifting technique when carrying heavy loads or fail to warm up or cool down properly before or after exercise or sports. There are also many less preventable causes of back and spine problems, such as degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, chronic problems like spondylitis or conditions like scoliosis, which causes an abnormal curvature of the spine.

Even if you suffer from a mild condition that affects your back, the pain and discomfort is enough to disrupt your day-to-day life. But we can help. We can offer comprehensive, fast and specialist orthopaedic diagnosis treatment for all kinds of back & spine problems from slipped discs and fractures, to sprains and strains.

By using the latest point-of-care screening technology, such as MRI and ultrasound scans or conventional X-rays, we can support a rapid diagnosis of your back and spine problem, allowing our orthopaedic specialists to recommend any appropriate follow-up treatment steps. These could include conservative pain management through painkillers, anti-inflammatories or steroid injections to minimally invasive spinal surgery. We also offer corrective surgical procedures for all kinds of spinal deformities, decompression surgery or disc replacement surgery.

Our team also works alongside our musculoskeletal physiotherapists who will offer advice and exercises to help you get back to maximum flexibility and movement as quickly as possible.

At The Chelmsford we can treat a huge range of back and spine problems and injuries – not just the ones you may have heard or read about. So if you are unable to find what you are looking for here, please do get in touch.

We look forward to hearing from you.
