Nowadays more and more people are suffering from disorders of the locomotor system, due to wrong movements on the one hand, too little exercise on the other. There are also factors such as poor diet, prolonged stress, mental stress, hereditary conditions or ailments such as tumors or osteoporosis.
These disorders may lead to spinal problems, among other things, which can manifest themselves through symptoms such as back pain (lumbago), radiating arm (brachialgia) or leg pain (sciatica), numbness (hypoesthesia), all the way to paralysis (paresis).
In such cases Wehrle Private Hospital's spine center provides swift and professional help. After detailed analysis of possible causes of pain, an optimally tuned, multimodal treatment concept is developed for each individual patient. This is based on a strategy employing several stages ranging from conservative treatment such as infusion, infiltration, chiropractic, therapeutic gymnastics, to specific blockages all the way to minimally invasive surgery, implantation of artificial discs or stabilization.
Spinal surgery will be avoided whenever possible. However, in case of paralysis or continued (refractory) pain a surgical invasion surgery may prove necessary.
