Spine Specialist in Delhi

The spine acts as the support structure of the body and ensures an upright posture of the body. A number of organs including the head, chest, shoulders, arms, and legs are connected through the spine which ensures their effective working. The spine is made of a number of bones and each does a different kind of job. The bones have cushions between them known as discs. The disc works by absorbing any shock or trauma that the spine is exposed to. Another major function of the spinal cord includes transmitting messages from the brain to all parts of the body. Since the spine has a wide range of roles to play in the body, any damage caused to the spine can significantly hamper your day to day life.

At Apollo Spectra, we have a team of the leading spine specialists in Delhi, who have broad knowledge and practice in skilfully treating a number of spinal cord diseases and disorders.

What are some common spine conditions?
A number of factors including diseases, trauma and birth defects can affect the spine and its healthy functioning. At Apollo Spectra, our spine specialists diagnose and treat a great range of spine-related conditions and provide them relief from the discomfort brought in by these conditions. Some common conditions that our spine specialists treat include-

• Sciatica

This is a condition affecting the lumbar (lower) spine. It is caused by an irritated sciatic nerve. This could have a number of reasons such as spinal stenosis, a herniated disc, arthritis or a trauma or injury to the spine. Sciatica can lead to discomforting pain and a feeling of tingling and numbness in the limbs. It is mainly treated using medicines, physical therapy, sympathetic block or spinal fusion.

• Radiculopathy

Radiculopathy is a disease of the roots of the nerves. A herniated disc, pinched nerve, blow/injury to the spine or a tumour can cause a damage to the roots of the nerve, leading to this condition.

• Spinal stenosis

It is a condition characterized by the narrowing of the spinal canal which leads to pinching of the nerves. This condition often causes radiating pain in back and legs. Conservative treatments are considered to be helpful in this condition.

• Scoliosis

It is a spine condition commonly observed in adolescents and children. It is characterized by the curving of the spine towards its sides. This condition can range from being mild to serious in some cases. Spinal fusion or physical therapy are the common treatment methods for scoliosis.

• Arthritis of the spine

Arthritis of the spine is just as discomfiting and painful as any other type of arthritis. It can also cause a loss of motion in the lower back or the pelvic region. While this condition cannot be cured completely, there are a number of ways to treat it which can help in pain management and preventing loss of motion. At Apollo Spectra, our spine specialists suggest the most effective ways to manage arthritis and ensure a healthy lifestyle.

• Spondylolisthesis

This condition occurs when a vertebra slips on the vertebra below it. This can cause excruciating pain in the affected area. In most cases, physical therapy is employed as the major method of treating spondylolisthesis. It helps in strengthening the muscles of the back and reducing the pain caused by the condition.

At Apollo spectra, our spine specialists perform a thorough examination to diagnose a wide range of conditions and suggest the best treatment accordingly.
