Spinal Conditions and Treatments

The spine is a complex structure, running from the base of the skull to the pelvis. The Spine has numerous functions in health:
  • Allowing us to remain upright

  • Helping to protect our internal organs

  • Providing safe passage for the Spinal Cord and Nerves

  • Acting as a source of bone marrow, where new blood cells are made

There are many different parts to the spine and each may cause different problems. We treat the following conditions in our centres.
  • Vertebra (bones)
