Spinal injections/ Spinal Surgery

 

Following assessment in CMATS your clinician may decide that you need to have a scan of your back or neck to investigate for nerve compression. This can cause symptoms such as leg pain (‘sciatica’), or arm pain (‘brachial neuralgia’). Sometimes symptoms also include numbness; pins and needles or weakness.  If the scan confirms a potential nerve compression in your neck or back, and the pain in your arm or leg is severe, your clinician may organise for you to have a Spinal injection or may refer you on to see a Spinal Consultant to consider treatment options including spinal surgery.

Please find the following information on both these treatment options below by clicking on the links.
