Our Back Care

Your spine is made up of three segments and these segments form three natural curves. The "c-shaped" curves of the neck (cervical spine) and the lower back (lumbar spine). As well as the "reverse c-shaped" curve of the chest (thoracic spine) also called kyphosis. These curves are important to balance and make it possible to stand upright. If any one of the curves becomes too large or small, it eventually causes the patient problems.

Lumbar Disc Surgery

The spinal column is made up of a series of bones that are known as the vertebra. To keep the vertebra from rubbing against each other, discs come between each bone. They also act as shock absorbers. An issue with these disks may cause discomfort or pain. The most frequent site for these types of problems is the lumbar region, which is commonly referred to as the lower back.
