Cervical Conditions &

The cervical spine, comprising seven vertebrae labeled C1 to C7, is a critical component of the spine located in the neck region. Its primary function is to support the head, allowing for a broad range of movements such as rotation, flexion, and extension. Common conditions affecting the cervical spine include cervical spondylosis, herniated discs, and cervical radiculopathy. Diagnostic tools such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRI are employed to assess the structure and diagnose issues.

  • Herniated Disc
  • Neck Pain/Stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Cervical Stenosis
  • Myelopathy
  • Radiculopathy
  • Kyphosis
  • Cervical Arthroplasty / Cervical Disc Replacement
  • Posterior Cervical Laminectomy/ Fusion
  • Minimally Invasive Cervical Laminoforaminotomy
  • Cervical Laminoplasty
  • Chiari Decompression
  • Compression fractures
  • Thoracic Stenosis
  • Thoracic Neuropathy
  • Thoracic Spondylosis
  • Myelopathy
  • Radiculopathy
  • Kyphosis
  • Thoracic Fusion
  • Thoracic Minimally Invasive Laminectomy/ Microdiscectomy

Thoracic Conditions &

The thoracic spine encompasses the middle portion of the vertebral column, consists of twelve vertebrae labeled T1 to T12 and is positioned between the cervical and lumbar regions. This section of the spine plays a crucial role in providing stability to the upper body and supporting the rib cage. The thoracic vertebrae are unique in structure, with each vertebra attached to a pair of ribs, contributing to the protective enclosure of vital organs such as the heart and lungs. The thoracic spine allows limited flexibility compared to the cervical and lumbar regions, primarily focusing on rotational movements. Intervertebral discs between each pair of vertebrae function as shock absorbers, aiding in weight-bearing and maintaining spinal alignment. Nerves originating from the thoracic spine extend to various organs and tissues, influencing sensory and motor functions. Common conditions affecting the thoracic spine include vertebral fractures, herniated discs, and degenerative disc disease.

Lumbar Conditions &

The lumbar spine, situated in the lower back, is composed of five large vertebrae labeled L1 to L5. This region of the spine is responsible for providing support to the upper body, facilitating a range of movements, and bearing a significant portion of the body's weight. The lumbar vertebrae are characterized by their robust structure, reflecting the demands placed on this part of the spine. Intervertebral discs between each pair of vertebrae act as shock absorbers, aiding in flexibility and distributing pressure during activities such as walking and lifting. The lumbar spine allows for various movements, including bending forward (flexion), extending backward (extension), and twisting (rotation). Nerves originating from the lumbar spine extend to the lower limbs, influencing sensation and motor control. Common conditions affecting the lumbar spine include herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and lumbar radiculopathy.

  • Lumbar Stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Piriformis Syndrome
