The team at Broadgate Spine & Joint Clinic will be publishing a series of articles relating to lower back pain, its many causes and evidence-based treatment. This introductory article will highlight several of the topics that we will be addressing. We firmly believe that well-informed patients will attain better clinical results and their understanding of the provided treatment enhances compliance.
In order to understand the many conditions that can arise in the lower back region, we will begin this series of articles with a thorough explanation of how the lower back is built up and how it works.
This article will be followed by a long series of articles that deal with specific condition, including:
- simple back strain
- joint and disc conditions
- muscular conditions
- disc herniations and sciatica
- spinal stenosis
- inflammatory disease such as rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis
- congenital abnormalities
- referred pain to the spine from internal organs
- referred pain from the spine
- treatments and reasonable expectations
- quality control and how we measure progress
Each article will be written by a specialist at Broadgate who has a particular interest in the subject matter. We are most fortunate to have a broad team at Broadgate including physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, spinal surgeons, medical acupuncture, orthopaedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists, neurologists and others. All of the information provided will be in accordance with both National and International Guidelines.
The team at Broadgate look forward to being able to provide visitors to our website with this information.
