INJURIES AND DISEASES
OF THE HEAD & NECK
A variety of symptoms of the head & neck deriving from orthopaedic origins can be clarified by medical specialists. These include pain, tension, dizziness, ringing in the ears. Other complaints may also specifically involve disturbed sensations, tingling and paresthesias that can radiate into the fingers.
Among others, the diseases and injuries relevant to orthopaedic-trauma surgery in this sector include:
- Segmental blocks
- Slipped discs
- Spinal canal stenosis
- Cervicogenic dizziness and headaches
- Whiplash/cervical spine distortion
- Osteoporosis (reduced bone mineral density)
- Vertebral fractures
THE IS WHAT WE DO
FOR HEAD & NECK
The methods available for rendering an exact diagnosis include clinical examination and instrument-driven diagnostics (digital X-ray, measurements, functional tests etc.). Special cases are referred to the radiology department for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Therapeutically, our large portfolio of chirotherapeutic/manual medical techniques ranges from injections, infusions and physical measures up to rehabilitative sports. In rare cases, it may be necessary to refer you to the neurosurgery department for operative care. Usually, however, surgery can be avoided. We have had very good experience with targeted neural therapy procedures.
