Spinal discs…so misunderstood! They allow us to bend and like all our tissues, change with age. This does not mean that they will cause pain. Most disc changes don’t cause pain and those that do, mostly improve with time. .I hope you found this interesting..Thank you for reading!June..Remember, this is just for your information and does not replace individualised medical advice. .#discs #backpain #discprolapse #discbulge #backpainfacts #backpaintreatment #backpainrelief #straffan #straffanphysiotherapy #kildarephysiotherapy #kildarephysio See MoreSee Less

Spine surgery… when is it needed? The thought of having surgery on the spine often creates a lot of anxiety and fear. Spine surgery is successful in limited situations. In very rare situations, it is necessary. It works very well for leg pain caused by a nerve being irritated in the spine, eg by a disc. But back pain may not be better after surgery, even if the leg pain is gone. ..At 6 months, most people with back and leg pain will have the same outcome with or without surgery. So, it’s worth trying other options such as Physiotherapy, pain medication, and allowing time for healing..So, surgery can be successful if you’re the right candidate, but it is not inevitable. Make sure you’re getting the best advice and be informed before making any decisions..I hope this helps. Thank you for reading..June. ..Remember, this is for general information purposes and does not replace individualised medical advice. #backpainfacts #backpain #sciatica #backpaintreatment #sciaticatreatment #sciaticarelief #spinesurgery #backsurgery See MoreSee Less

⭐️New Service Available ⭐️ I’m delighted to share that I’m now offering Specialist Spine Screen appointments. With so much misinformation and clever marketing of quick fixes, it can be hard to know what’s safest and best for you. I have 10 year’s experience, specifically in spine pain, working alongside Spine Surgeons and 20 years as a physio. .Spine pain is complex. It is really important that you are fully screened by an experienced professional and that you receive a correct diagnosis. You deserve safe, no- nonsense, evidence- based information and treatment. .This longer duration appointment will allow more time to assess, diagnose, and discuss your treatment plan. Understanding your symptoms can be the first step in relieving your symptoms..In the rare situation where you may need a Spine injection or surgery, I can refer you directly to a Spine Surgeon..Booking can be made via my website or / text 087-3870936.
