Cervical Whiplash Injury
Pressure on the nerve roots as they exit the spine may cause pain and numbness radiating down to the arms, this condition is known as cervical radiculopathy.
Cervical Disc Prolapse or herniated nucleus pulposus and cervical degeneration (ageing) may cause spinal canal narrowing and pressure over the cervical spinal cord.
Cervical Disc Prolapse (PID) and Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy (CSM)
Ossification of this ligament which runs behind the vertebral body and in from of the spinal canal may cause canal narrowing and cervical spinal cord compression.
Cervical OPLL (Ossification of Posterior Longitudinal Ligament)
Degeneration and head or neck injury may cause instability of the cervical spine.
Cervical Instability C1-2 Subluxation
Cervical Spine Problems
Upper Cervical Spine Fractures and Dislocations
Various upper cervical injuries will require spine stabilization and fusion techniques. We can perform various types of fusion surgeries for any form of upper cervical spine injury or disorder.
Lower Cervical Spine Fractures and Dislocations
Lower or subaxial cervical spine injuries again can cause problems, these can be treated using modern fusion techniques.
