Back Pain (Spinal Care)

back pain spinal care

More than four out of five of us will suffer from back pain at some point in our lives and every year one out of five of us will consult our GP about it.

But in many cases Ramsay hospitals can offer effective treatments for those with persistent back pain.

Typically, back pain is concentrated in the lumbar (lower back) region which takes most of the strain of our lifestyle. The pain can be associated with stiffness, and sometimes muscle spasms and reduced motion.

Some people are more likely to develop back pain because their lifestyle puts a particular strain on their back. In other cases back problems may be related to age - such as degeneration of the discs in the spine which cushion the vertebrae.

Much back pain is described as non-specific (not diagnosed as due to a particular condition) and may settle after conservative management over a period of weeks. Sufferers are often recommended to try over-the-counter painkillers, hot and cold compresses, and reduced activity. 

Solutions for your back pain

But there is no need to go on suffering with back pain. In many cases, much can be done to relieve it and Ramsay Health Care has a broad range of expertise to give sufferers the best possible chance of recovery. 

As well as excellent clinical care, Ramsay hospitals offer private patients our Premium Care package which aims to make your stay as comfortable as possible and ensure you get treatment at a time which suits you.

If you have private or company medical insurance you should ask your insurer if you are covered for these treatments. We can also provide you with an estimate of costs if you are paying yourself.
