Spine

Spine is made up of 26 bone discs called vertebrae. Protected deep inside the bones, the spinal cord connects your body to the brain, allowing movement of your arms and legs. Strong muscles and bones, flexible tendons and ligaments, and sensitive nerves contribute to a healthy spine. The spinal column provides the main support for your body, allowing you to stand upright, bend, and twist. Ligaments and muscles connect the bones together and keep them aligned. They include Infections, Injuries, Tumors, Ankylosing spondylitis, scoliosis, spinal stenosis and herniated disks. Spinal diseases often cause pain when bone changes put pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. They can also limit movement. Treatments differ by disease, but sometimes they include back braces and surgery.

Laminectomy

It is a surgical procedure to remove lamina. Lamina is the back part of vertebra that covers spinal canal. It is also called as decompression surgery. Laminectomy may also be done to remove bone spurs in spine. It can take a pressure of spinal nerves. Laminectomy is generally used only when more-conservative treatments such as medication, physical therapy or injections have failed to relieve symptoms. Laminectomy may also be recommended if symptoms are severe or worsening dramatically.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is used to describe the abnormal, sideways curvature of the spine. When a person with a normal spine is viewed from the front or back, the spine appears to be straight, when a person with scoliosis is viewed from the front or back, the spine appears to be curved. Types of scoliosis are infantile, juvenile, adolescent, congenital and neuromuscular scoliosis.

Spine Tumour

It is a growth of cells in or surrounding the spinal cord. It can occur inside the spinal cord (intramedullary), in the membrane covering the spinal cord, between the meninges and bones of the spine. The symptoms are loss of sensation especially in the legs, loss of muscle function, cold sensation of the legs, and muscle weakness.

Spinal Canal

The spinal canal is space in vertebrae through which the spinal cord is passes. Spinal stenosis can occur in three locations of the spinal canal: in the middle of the canal, in the lateral recess, or in the neuroforamen. The spinal canal is filled with cerebrospinal fluid that bathes nerves. The canal originates at the base of the skull and ends at the sacrum.

Spinal Diseases

It refers to a condition impairing the backbone. It is also known as a dorsopathy. It is includes cervical spine diseases, which are diseases in the vertebrae of the neck. The symptoms are lower back pain that is generally made worse with sitting; back pain is intensified by bending, turning and twisting.

Ischial Spine

It is a thin pointed triangular eminence that project from the dorsal order of the ischium. It gives the attachment to the gemellus superior on its external surface and to the coccyges, levator ani, and pelvic fascia on its internal surface. The pudendal nerve passes dorsal to the ischial spine.

Biomechanics of Spine

Biomechanics is the term used to describe movement of the body. In order to better understand the biomechanics of the spine it is important to understand the anatomy of the spine. The spine is one of the most complex parts of the body. The spine can be divided into five sections: the cervical section (the neck), the thoracic section (the upper back), the lumbar section (the lower back), the sacrum (part of the pelvis) and the coccyx (the tailbone). The main movements of the spine are to bend forward (flex), bend backward (extend), side-bend (side-flex), and rotate. Finally, normal spine biomechanics is required to maintain a healthy spine. Abnormal biomechanics can be classified as hypomobile (decreased) movement between vertebrae, hypermobile (increased) movement between vertebrae or instability (severe loss of stability).

Minimal Invasive Spine Surgery

"Minimally Invasive" refers to a technique using small incisions to gain access to the particular area of the body needing treatment. By avoiding a larger incision, there can be less force from the retractors on the surrounding tissues, less tissue dissection, and usually better preservation of the surrounding blood supply to the tissues in the operated area. Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS), does not involve a long incision, it avoids significant damage to the muscles surrounding the spine. In most cases, this results in less pain after surgery and a faster recovery. Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is sometimes called less invasive spine surgery. In these procedures, doctors use specialized instruments to access the spine through small incisions.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of spaces in the spine (backbone) which causes pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. About 75% of cases of spinal stenosis occur in the low back (lumbar spine). In most cases, the narrowing of the spine associated with stenosis compresses the nerve root, which can cause pain along the back of the leg. There are two types of spinal stenosis: lumbar stenosis and cervical stenosis. While lumbar spinal stenosis is more common, cervical spinal stenosis is often more dangerous because it involves compression of the spinal cord. Spinal stenosis is most commonly caused by wear-and-tear changes in the spine related to osteoarthritis.

Spine Cancer

Spine cancer is an abnormal tissue growth associated with cancer. The symptoms of the spinal cancer are tumour type, size, location and extent, as well as age. When the tumour presses on the spinal cord, the symptoms begin with numbness or tilting in the arm or legs, difficulty walking, general loss of sensation, spinal deformities and pain or difficulty with standing.

Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is a common disorder; almost everyone has it at some point. It is starts below the ribcage.it are called as lumbar region. The symptoms of lower back pain are, pain develops after movements lifting, twisting, or forward-bending, difficulty moving that can be severe enough to prevent walking or standing.

Spine Surgery

Lumbar surgery refers to any type of surgery in the lumbar spine, or lower back, between one or more of the L1-S1 levels. Spine surgery may be recommended if non-surgical treatment such as medications and physical therapy fails to relieve symptoms. Surgery is only considered in cases where the exact source of pain can be determined—such as a herniated disc, scoliosis, or spinal stenosis. Spinal Fusion. Spinal fusion is the most common surgery for back pain. In a spinal fusion, a surgeon joins spinal bones, called vertebrae, together. This restricts motion between the bones of the spine. Fusion also limits the stretching of nerves.

Lower Back Surgery

There are many types of back surgery technics, but they aren’t equally effective for everyone. Spinal fusion is the most common surgery for back pain. Benefits of back surgeries are increased activity, better physical fitness, and ability to go back to work.

Sciatic nerve

It is a large nerve in humans and animals.it is the longest and widest single nerve in the human body.it is formed by the nerve roots. Pain associated with the sciatic nerve usually originates higher along the spinal cord when nerve roots become compressed from narrowing of the vertebral column or from slipped disk.

Techniques in Spine surgery

The two primary types of medical devices used in a spinal fusion surgery include pedicle screws and anterior interbody cages or spacers. When it has been determined that a spine fusion is appropriate, the surgical technique utilized may vary. There are three main posterior fusion techniques (all three are usually performed with pedicle screw fixation):Posterolateral gutter fusion surgery: This type of spinal fusion involves placing bone graft in the posterolateral portion of the spine Posterior lumbar  interbody fusion (PLIF) surgery: A PLIF involves placing bone graft and/or spinal implant (e.g. cage) directly into the disc space in the front of the spine. Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) surgery: A TLIF is essentially like an extended PLIF, as it also involves expanding the disc space by removing one entire facet joint.

Backache

Backache is a pain or ache in the back. It is more common between the age of 35 and 55. It may be sudden and sharp. It may be caused by fall or heavy lifting, driving or sitting in a hunched position, slouching in chairs and overstretching.

Spondylosis

It refers to degenerative changes in the spine.it is incomplete development and formation of the connecting part of the vertebra. Spondylosis is used to describe degeneration in the neck (cervical), lower back (lumbar), and middle back (thoracic). It is also used to describe the manner of spinal degeneration.

Cervical Laminectomy

Cervical laminectomy is the procedure to remove a portion of bone from the spine in the neck to relieve pressure caused by cervical spinal stenosis. It can place pressure on the spinal cord. Due to that spinal cord can be insidious loss of coordination, loss of balance during walking, and even bowel and bladder incontinence.

Spine pediatrics

Cervical spine injuries may occur at birth or result from a car accident or other trauma. Cervical spine abnormalities are usually present at birth (congenital). These abnormalities are rare, occurring most often in children who have Down syndrome, various forms of dwarfism, Klippel-Feil syndrome or bone disorders. In pediatric cervical spine surgery, a surgeon removes the bony structures or abnormalities that are compressing your child's brainstem or spinal cord. Surgery can help prevent deformity, chronic pain and loss of nerve function. Pediatric cervical  spine surgery is a treatment option for children who have injuries or abnormalities in the neck portion of the spine.

Sciatica

Sciatica is a common type of pain affecting the sciatic nerve. It is usually affect only one side of lower body and then extended to back of thigh and down through the leg. It will be depends on where the sciatic nerve is affected, the pain may also extend to the foot or toes.

Spina bifida

Spina bifida is a type of birth defect called a neural tube defect. It occurs when the bones of the spine  (vertebrae) don't form properly around part of the baby's spinal cord. Spina bifida can be mild or severe. There are four types of spina bifida: occulta, closed neural tube defects, meningocele, and myelomeningocele. The exact cause of spina bifida remains a mystery. No one knows what disrupts complete closure of the neural tube, causing this malformation to develop. Scientists suspect the factors that cause spina bifida are multiple: genetic, nutritional, and environmental factors all play a role. The symptoms of spina bifida vary from person to person, depending on the type and level of involvement. Closed neural tube defects are often recognized early in life due to an abnormal tuft or clump of hair or a small dimple or birthmark on the skin at the site of the spinal malformation.
