Spine Specialist Sydney
The spinal cord consists of a network of nerves that runs through the middle of your back. Encased inside the vertebrae, its role is to carry messages between your brain and the rest of your body. When damaged or injured, the vertebrae and other parts of the spine can lead to problems. Spinal cord disorders include spinal tumours, infections, inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases, and degenerative diseases. Numerous conditions impact the spine anywhere from the neck to the lower back.
Common symptoms of spine disorders range from experiencing stiffness or tightness and numbness, to sharp back or neck pains and even bladder or bowel dysfunction. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should consult your neurosurgeon immediately. To determine the right treatment options for you, Dr. Jeffrey Brennan will conduct a thorough evaluation including a physical exam or bone scan, a neurological exam, and a discussion of your personal medical history and risk factors. Early diagnosis is necessary for the success of your treatment.
