How to tackle back pain caused by spinal disorders

About 70 per cent of the causes can be attributed to a sedentary lifestyle, which could be prevented by leading an active life.

And if you suspect spinal disorders are behind your backache, then you need to engage specialists to get back to normalcy as soon as possible.

An integrated treatment strategy

Experts at Al Zahra Hospital Dubai have an integrated strategy to deal with spinal disorders, which includes a detailed diagnosis, least invasive treatments that offer maximum benefits and structured rehabilitation plans.

“At the Zahra Spine Center we always look from the least to the most invasive form of treatments that have the highest benefits for our patients,” says Dr Kassis. “We are equipped with the latest international treatments, both invasive and non-invasive, allowing us to give our patients options and the best chance of recovery.”

From non-invasive treatments such as physical therapy, medication, exercise and cryotherapy to less invasive but advanced pain management procedures like spinal injections (nerve block and epidural) and neuromodulation are available at the Al Zahra Spine Center, along with cutting-edge non-surgical techniques such as regenerative biological treatments including stem cells and platelet-rich plasma.

In cases that require surgical intervention, Al Zahra Spine Center employs minimally invasive procedures that result in less trauma but offer the greatest benefits.

“We use some of the latest world-class surgical procedures, which include incisions through the skin and muscle without injuring the muscle such as tubular retractors,” explains Dr Brodzinski. “Even the most invasive spinal surgical procedures are now being done through minimally or less invasive techniques, giving people the best outcomes with the least downtime.”

Using the latest diagnostic technology, such as the 3 Tesla MRI that provides superior imaging in half the usual time, Al Zahra Spine Center works closely with other specialties to ensure a 360-degree delivery of care and empower patients with the right tools for the best outcomes. Post-surgery, the physiotherapy and rehabilitation teams get into the action to carry out long-term, goal-driven plans and bring the patients back to normal life the fastest way possible.

But the road to recovery is paved with teamwork and shared responsibilities, say the experts, where the patients along with the doctors have to commit to the process to get the desired outcomes.
