Symptoms suffered by patients with a spinal problem include back pain, neck pain, leg pain, arm pain, spinal deformity or a combination of the above.
Diagnosis, from history, examination and imaging, helps advise on natural history, provide reassurance and outline potential treatment strategies for the whole range of spinal conditions. Scanning can help to rule out problems but standing X-rays in some patients are sometimes invaluable as we see the spine under load
Most patients need sensible guidance, reassurance and explanation to help them to understand and manage their pain without the need for intervention. Sometimes, injections can help this process and confirm diagnosis
You may just want reassuring or further explanation for a complex problem. Having a second opinion can help you make your decision. Mr Harding has a worldwide reputation and expertise in adult deformity and can provide a remote second opinion service remotely to patients worldwide. Please contact PA to arrange this
