Non Surgical Treatment

Most back conditions do not require surgical treatment. In most cases conservative management such as physiotherapy or pilates are sufficient – this can be booked on the morning of your consultation. If necessary spinal injections – such as epidural, facet or nerve root injections can also be arranged within a few days.


In certain conditions, resistant to conservative management, surgery is necessary. This may include –

  • Disc Excision
  • Decompression
  • Spinal Fusion
  • X-stop posterior distraction device
  • Dynesys dynamic stabilisation
  • Surgery for Spondylolisthesis – reconstruction or fusion
