PAIN CONDITIONS

Specific spinal pain

Pain arising from specific structural changes to your spine.

‘Specific spinal pain’ refers to pain arising from a specific structural change to your spine. This may include injury, degeneration or disease effecting the spinal column or its associated soft tissues.

When spinal pain persists long term, it may also involve and influence various other body systems. This means our treatment approach must be well-rounded – taking into account your overall health, not just the spinal issue in isolation.

Our treatment approach

Treating specific pain generally requires addressing the structural abnormality itself through physiotherapy and, in some cases, a minimally invasive procedure.

Other medical tools, including medications and nutraceutical interventions, may also be applied to manage the pain and inflammation associated with specific spinal pain.

Procedures vs surgeries

"Pain procedures are a highly specialised subset of medical procedures; very different to typical invasive spinal surgeries. They carry far fewer risks and offer superior outcomes for persistent spinal pain."
