Conservative Management
The bones we have in our back that protect the spinal cord and that supports the torso is what we call the Spine. It is composed of 24 articulating vertebrae and 9 fused vertebrae. It is divided into 4 sections.
Cervical Spine (Neck) – This is where it connects to our head (skull) and our chest.
Thoracic Spine (Chest)– This is where our ribs are connected. It protects our internal organs such as the lungs, heart, etc.
Lumbar Spine (Lower back) – They have the biggest vertebrae. It supports the cervical and thoracic spine.
Sacrum and Coccyx– fused bones at the lower end of your spine.


There are numerous conditions that may be related to any alteration to this part of the body. The following are few of the conditions we commonly encounter:
Degenerative Disc Disease
Herniated Nucleus Pulposus
Spine Strains
In between the vertebrae, we can find the discs. They serve as shock absorbers – so that your vertebrae do not bump into each other. They also can function as ligaments – so as to hold the spine together in a line. Surrounding the spine, we have our core muscles to help us move, twist, stretch our body appropriately. As these protect the spinal cord as it travels down, they have to be tough and should be aligned well so as not to cause a disruption to the nervous system. Any injury to these components manifests as a health issue.

Consultation with our orthopedic specialist – We will evaluate your condition, do radiographic studies to help determine your diagnosis, help you set short-term and long-term goals, advise you on available treatments that may be used to better suit your needs, and monitor your progress moving forward.

You can also try Physiotherapy sessions with our physiotherapists – we often get to deal with these disorders, and our staff have well-rounded knowledge to detection and treatment. Physiotherapy can help you do exercises and teach you stretches to do before and after exercises to enable your body to function at its full potential.

Our Sports Masseur can help you loosen up these contractions and then later on, condition your body to be back to its pre-injury state making it ready for physiotherapy stretches and proper exercises.



Prevention generally involves exercising regularly, building muscle strength and flexibility, maintaining a healthy weight and proper posture and making educated choices when buying back-related products, like mattresses and office chairs. Speak with your doctor about how you can proactively avoid back pain. Treatment of this medical condition will almost always depend on the cause, location and severity of the patient’s unique condition.
