We have built strong links with highly respected Neurospinal Surgeons and Neurologists in the local area.
We would send you to one of these Consultants if it became clear from the scans that nerve function or damage was present, due to soft tissue injury such as a disc protrusion or a tumour pressing on the spinal cord.

ORTHOPAEDIC & SPORTS CONSULTANTS

We are extremely fortunate to have Dr Steven Lewis on hand to provide us with up to date treatment of all Sports injuries. Having had years of experiencing Orthopaedic and Sports Injury problems he is our first port of call to provide an opinion. We have built up links with Consultants in Goring, Chichester, Brighton & Hove, Haywards Heath and London if other opinion is required.

RADIOLOGICAL & RHEUMATOLOGY CONSULTANTS

Nowadays, the concensus is to try and not operate on spines unless there is no other option. Therefore disc injuries are often treated non surgically with Physical Therapy or failing that Spinal Injections under Ultrasound or CT scan. If blood tests come back with raised inflammatory markers it may be a sign of a Rheumatological condition causing your pain.
