Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery - What Should You Know?

The spinal cord is such a crucial part of the body, and an injury to it can really change people’s lives for the worse. After all, controlling our movements, our sense of feeling and directing the limbs, among other things, makes it so very important. It does happen sometimes that injury to it requires surgery. Isn’t the prospect of the surgery going wrong quite a scary one?

For decades, whenever surgery to the spine was required, the surgeon needed to cut open the skin covering the spine as well as some extra skin, perhaps to see what needed to be done and then go ahead and carry out what was actually required. What this basically meant is that surgery resulted in more damage to the muscles and skin. This led to people taking longer to recover.

Most of the injuries that surgeons who specialise in surgeries of the spine comes across are decompressions and fusion of the spine. While the old style open surgery was popular, it is good to know minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is a possibility since it is spreading across the medical world and makes so much sense.

So, what can a person look forward to while having an MISS, as compared to the conventional kind? When it comes to MISS, the incisions which have to be made in most of the cases are very small. Generally, they should not be longer than a few inches. The reason why they need to be made is so that the equipment can be inserted into the body and so can a camera so that the surgeon can see what he or she is doing with sufficient amount of accuracy. Moreover, since the incision is small, the blood loss is less and the scar on the patient’s body is also small.

Well, the best part is that it will take far less time for the patient to get up and running again. The return to activities, which were part and parcel of one’s daily routine, will take a lot less time. This also means that the medical costs which one would need to bear would be lower as a person would be able to move back home from the hospital a lot sooner than would normally be the case.

Considering this, there is not much to “MISS” about the era of open surgery!

Spine Care According To Ayurveda!

Spine is one of the most important bone structures in the human body. It supports the whole body and is located on the back, connecting the brain to the body. Spine is really sensitive and a small injury can lead to a serious health problem. The most common regions of spinal pain are in the lower back (lumbar region) and in the neck (cervical region).

An injured, damaged, or unhealthy spine can result in a serious issue and can affect one’s daily life adversely. It might even possess a serious risk to the normal functioning of the body and the nervous system. Caring for the spine is as important as caring for the vitals like the brain or heart.

Causes:

Spinal problems could be from birth or might happen due to various reasons. Spine problems happen with ageing too, as it starts wearing down. There are many reasons for a spinal problem. Some of the possible causes are mentioned below:

  1. Lack of calcium

  2. Osteoarthritis

  3. Unhealthy and unbalanced diet

  4. Kyphosis

  5. Accident or injury

  6. Neurological problems

  7. Sciatica

  8. Wrong posture

  9. Ageing

  10. Scoliosis

  11. Pregnancy

  12. Obesity

  13. Neck (whiplash) sprain

  14. Ankylosing Spondylitis (arthritis of the spine)

  15. Neck strain

  16. Tumor

  17. Spondylolisthesis

Diagnosis:

It is not usually easy to diagnose the problem of the spine by oneself. But, one should pay serious attention if they have severe pain or the pain is not fading away even after taking medications. One could be in urgent need of a doctor if he/she finds their limbs numb after waking up or could not control their natural calls. One might need to go through several medical tests to correctly diagnose the root cause of the problem. Some of the problems strictly require surgery as a treatment. If there is a medical treatment or physiotherapy is done, it is generally long-term.

Precautions:

  1. Avoid heavy weight lifting

  2. Avoid walking long distances

  3. Fix the posture

  4. Avoid sitting in the same posture in the same spot for too long

  5. Maintain a healthy weight.

Spine Care According to Ayurveda:

● There are various asanas, exercises, and postures that help reduce back pain. One can perform one or various asanas depending upon the nature of the problem and severity of the same.

● Oil massages help treat several types of back injuries and problems. Every treatment oil is made with different ingredients and different types of massage techniques goes into the treatment depending upon the severity and problem.

  1. There are various types of yoga that go well for the treatment of spine problems. One should not try these yoga postures on his/her own with or without the spine issue, as incorrect yoga can exaggerate the problem. This should be done under medical professionals and yoga experts.

  2. Ayurvedic medications are also given to control the pain which again depends upon the type of problem and its intensity.  

  3. A healthy and balanced diet plan is often considered a major part of treating spinal issues.  

Take Away:

One might have spine pain once in a while due to certain reasons, but it should not be avoided if the pain takes longer to fade or one finds some abnormality in the structure of the spine as it could be a symptom of some serious health problem. A minor problem can be healed by just changing one’s posture and diet, but surgery could be needed in case of injury or other serious issues.

Spine Deformity - How To Resolve It?

Spine deformity is a medical condition that refers to any type of abnormality in the shape, alignment, or formation of the vertebral column. The human spine, in its normal state, has a gentle curvature but when these curves become extreme or move out of place, it leads to deformities. Some deformities are mild in nature while some are serious. The former are not recognizable but the latter mark the personality of the individual and also cause physical problems. Spine deformity is also known as a misshapen spine or curvy spine and can affect anyone – child, adolescent, adult or old.

The signs and symptoms of spine deformity include low back pain, weakness, pain in legs or thighs, muscle spasms, breathing difficulty, uneven shoulders or hips or both, misalignment of the head, protruding shoulder blade, and poor gait.

  1. Scoliosis, Kyphosis, and Spondylolisthesis - Spinal deformity is mainly categorized into three conditions that commonly affect people: These spinal deformities include the following:
  2. Scoliosis – In this type of spinal deformity, the spine becomes curved from side to side forming an “S” or “C” shape. It mostly affects teenagers in their growing years but can also affect children and adults. It can be caused due to birth defects, genetic reasons, or neurological defects. It can be structural or nonstructural. The former is caused by disease, injury or birth defect and it is permanent in nature. The latter is temporary and can be treated with surgery.
  3. Kyphosis – Also known as a hunchback, kyphosis is a condition marked by excessive curvature in the upper part of the spine. This is a very visible condition and the person has a hump on their upper back. It can affect anyone and is generally known to result because of poor posture but an infection in the spine, injury, slipped disc, muscle weakness, arthritis, and aging can also trigger kyphosis.
  4. Spondylolisthesis – In this condition, a bone in the spine moves out of position, either forward or backwards, causing a deformity in the spine. It is caused by aging, arthritis, or general degeneration caused by wear and tear.

Treatment: Spinal deformity, in most of the cases, is treatable if it is detected on time. In cases of kyphosis or where the patient is experiencing symptoms such as pain or other tangible signs, physical examination by an orthopedist is necessary. Upon further screening through an X-ray or MRI scan, the degree of deformity is determined and then the doctor starts treatment. Some cases can be treated through braces or physical therapy or exercise. They correct the abnormal curvature of the spine and the individual can get a normal curvature after the treatment but in some cases, surgery is the only option left as only surgical intervention can rectify the deformed curvature. The surgical techniques include spinal fusion and insertion of implants.

Prevention: Spinal deformity is painful as well as personality diminishing condition and hence, need timely treatment but it can be prevented as well. For it to happen, causes such as poor posture, arthritis, and slip disc need to be addressed in time. One should be extra careful about pain in the back or legs and take immediate help from the doctor. Also, one should try to maintain a healthy weight and do regular exercise.

Spine Fracture - What Causes It?

Spinal fractures occur as a result of an injury or dislocation of the bony vertebra. This causes the bone fragments to pinch and damage the spinal cord. Fractures can occur anywhere along the spine but the most common site of fracture is the lower back.

What causes spinal fractures?

Spinal fractures are often a result of the following-

• A sudden traumatic injury
• A high-velocity accident
• Falling from a height
Sports injuries
• Spinal instability
• A whiplash

Types of spinal fractures:

Spinal fractures are classified into three categories, such as the following-

• Compression fracture - If you exert excessive pressure on the vertebra, it will break. This type of fracture occurs when the bones in the spine become fragile or weak to the extent that they easily crumble. People living with osteoporosis, certain types of cancer or tumours are prone to a compression fracture.

• Dislocation - When the discs and/or ligaments linking the vertebrae is torn or stretched, the bones may dislocate or come out of alignment.

• Fracture-dislocation - Torn ligament and broken bone lead to this condition. A fracture-dislocation is a debilitating condition and often requires surgical intervention.

Symptoms of spine fractures:

Following an accident or an injury, you can tell if you have ended up fracturing your spinal column by identifying these symptoms-

• Excruciating pain
Tingling sensation
Numbness
Muscle spasm
• Swelling of the muscle
• Sudden onset of back pain
• Restricted spinal mobility
• The pain worsens if you walk or stand for long
• Deformity or disability of the spine

How are spinal fractures treated?

Spinal fracture treatment begins with administering pain-management drugs and medications to ease the symptoms, and stabilization methods to prevent injury. Depending on the nature of the fracture, your doctor may follow these lines of treatment-

• Fusion and instrumentation - These are surgical procedures to cure unstable fractures. Fusion refers to the joining of the vertebrae using a bone graft along with hardware such as hooks, rods, plates, or pedicle screws. The bone graft joins the vertebrae below and above to form a solid piece of bone.

• Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty - These are minimally invasive procedures, wherein the surgeon injects bone cement into the fractured body through a needle. During kyphoplasty, the surgeon first inserts and inflates a balloon to expand the compressed vertebrae and then fills it with bone cement.

Spinal fractures are an extremely uncomfortable and painful condition to live with. It can hinder your day-to-day activities and affect your quality of life. It is imperative that you seek immediate treatment if you end up with fractures or dislocation of the spine.

Spinal Stenosis - Treating It The Right Way!

What is Spinal Stenosis ?

The narrowing of the gaps in the spine or the backbone is called as Spinal stenosis. This leads to pressure on the nerves and the spinal cord. 5% of cases of spinal stenosis are seen in the low back of the lumbar spine. In some cases the narrowing of the spine leads to the compressing of the nerve root, which leads to pain in the leg.

Causes of Spinal Stenosis

It can be caused by aging, arthritis, trauma to the spine, spondylolisthesis and tumor of the spine

Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis

There is constant pain in the back and legs as stenosis pinches the nerve responsible for sensation and muscle power. Other symptoms are numbness and tingling in the legs, frequent falling and pain while walking.

Treatments of Spinal Stenosis

-  A routine program with exercises and physical therapy are the best treatment for spinal stenosis. The exercises are not a complete cure but they are beneficial in keeping the patient active. A physical therapy can be supervised and once the period of the same is over people easily transition to the exercise program. The key for exercise is starting slowly in order to build strength.

-  Generally, the patients are counseled not to perform strenuous activities as that might worsen the symptoms of spinal stenosis. In case of lumbar stenosis, patients find it comfortable when they are flexed forward. The doctor might recommend walking while being bent over and leaning when using a walker if not walking upright; sitting in recliners is also recommended instead of straight back chairs.

-  Injections of cortisone are usually given in the epidural space. This is believed to relieve the symptoms of spinal stenosis temporarily. Though there have been studies which question the use of these injections as they lead to the risk of osteoporosis related fractures. This is still being pondered over by the doctors as a suitable treatment option as it has its own benefits and risks.

-  Medications such as the antiinflammatory medicines like ibuprofen or aspirin are helpful in controlling the symptoms of spinal stenosis. Narcotic drugs might also prove to be helpful if used with care and for a short while. This is helpful for severe pain related to the nerves. Muscle relaxants like gabapentins might also be recommended. In some case anti depressants might also be given to provide relief from pain. 

Though side effects are a concern when using these medications and the patient should let the doctor knows about their allergies.

Spinal Trauma - When Should You Consult A Doctor?

Spinal trauma, also referred to as spinal cord injury, occurs when a section of your spinal cord or the nerves at the edge of your spinal canal is damaged. The spinal cord acts as a messenger between the brain and other parts of your body. If the spine sustains an injury, all or some of these impulses may not get through. This may result in complete loss of mobility and sensation below the site of injury. An injury closer to the neck can cause paralysis throughout a larger part of the body than in the lower back region.

How do such injuries occur?

Often, spinal trauma or injury results from a violent event or an unpredictable accident. The following may severely damage your spinal cord-

• A violent attack (a gunshot or a stabbing)
• A motor vehicle accident that may cause trauma to the neck, back or head
• Falling from a great height
• Spinal or head injuries during some sports activity
• Electrical accidents

What are the signs of a spinal cord injury?

The followings signs and symptoms can be observed after an injury to the spinal cord-

• Difficulty walking
• Restricted movement of the legs and arms
• Stiffness, pressure and intense pain in the neck/back
• Loss of sensation
• Muscle spasms
• Loss of bowel or bladder control
• A twisted neck or back
• Lack of coordination, weakness or paralysis in any of the body part

When should you see a doctor?

If you experience significant trauma to the neck or head, accompanied by the above symptoms, then visit a doctor immediately. Spinal trauma or injuries is a debilitating condition and can deteriorate further if you do not seek medical intervention. In fact, if such an injury is not detected on time, you may have to face more severe complications. For instance, paralysis or numbness may develop immediately or gradually as blood clots and swelling occur in the surrounding region of the spine.

The doctor can detect spinal injuries using any of the following methods-

• CT Scan
MRI
X-ray

What is the treatment for spinal trauma?

An orthopaedic will recommend the correct treatment for spinal trauma or spinal cord injuries, depending on the severity of the condition.

• Medications - Intravenous medications can help reduce the pain and symptoms of acute spinal cord injury
Immobilization - Braces, corsets, or neck collar can help realign and stabilize the spine
Surgery - Surgery may be performed to remove bone fragments, herniated disks, foreign objects, or fractured vertebrae that are compressing the spine. Surgery also prevents deformity and pain in the long run.

Recovery starts typically within a week after the treatment. If you undergo surgery, you will have to wait a little longer to get back to your day-to-day activities. It is advisable that you follow up with your doctor and carry on physiotherapy for the first six months at least.

रीढ़ की हड्डी से संबंधित समस्याएं - Reedh Ki Haddi Se Sambandhit Samasyaen!

रीढ़ हमारे शरीर का महत्वपूर्ण अंग है. अतः रीढ़ की हड्डी के रोग को कभी भी नजरअंदाज नहीं करना चाहिए. रीढ़ हमारे शरीर में गर्दन से लेकर कमर तक रहता है. रीढ़ ऊपर से नीचे तक कई छोटे-छोटे हड्डियों से मिलकर बना होता है, जिसे मणका कहते हैं. सभी मणका ऊपर से नीचे तक एक-दूसरे से डिस्क से जुड़े होते हैं. यह डिस्क मणकों के लिए शॉकर का काम करती है जो अचानक चोट लगने पर इन मणकों की रक्षा करता है. पर कभी-कभी अचानक चोट लगने से या अन्य किसी भी कारण से ये मणका या डिस्क अपने जगह से खिसक जाते हैं या किसी भी कारण से मणका की हड्डी ज्यादा बढ़ जाते हैं या मणका टूट जाते हैं. इन्हीं सब कारणों से रीढ़ की हड्डी में किसी भी तरह का रोग होता है. ऐसी स्थिति में रीढ़ की हड्डी में असहनीय पीड़ा होती है और फिर शरीर का हिलना-डुलना मुश्किल हो जाता है. गर्दन से कमर तक में रीढ़ की हड्डी के किसी भी मणके में इस तरह के समस्या हो सकती है. पर किसी भी मणके में समस्या होने से पीठ या शरीर हिलाना मुश्किल हो जाता है. रीढ़ की हड्डी से होकर जाने वाली तंत्रिका या नस के प्रभावित होने से भी रीढ़ की हड्डी का रोग हो सकता है. अतः रीढ़ के हड्डी के किसी भी तरह के रोग का उचित इलाज अपने चिकित्सक से करानी चाहिए. आइये रीढ़ के हड्डी से संबंधित कुछ समस्याओं व महत्तवपूर्ण बातों पर विचार करते हैं.

गलत तरीका से बैठकर काम करना हो सकता है खतरनाक-

कितने लोग गलत तरीका से बैठकर या झुककर दिनभर या लगातार लंबे समय तक काम करते रह जाते है, जिसमें उनका गर्दन व कमर लगातार झुका रह जाता है. इस प्रकार गलत तरीका से बैठकर काम करना खतरनाक हो सकता है. इससे रीढ़ के हड्डी, पीठ या कमर में दर्द आ सकता है. इस प्रकार का दर्द उठते-बैठते, शरीर को दायें-बायें घुमाने या करवट लेने में हो सकती है.

ढीली चारपाई पर सोने से हो सकता है पीठ दर्द-
ढीली चारपाई पर सोने से रीढ़ की हड्डी सीधी नहीं रहती है. जिस कारण हमेशा इस प्रकार के ढीली चारपाई पर सोने से रीढ़ की हड्डी प्रभावित होती है जो पीठ दर्द कर रूप ले लेती है. इसी प्रकार ऊँचे तकिये पर सोने या टेढ़े-मेढ़े होकर सोने से भी पीठ दर्द हो सकता है.

ऊँचे एड़ी के सैंडील पहनना पड़ सकता है महँगा-
कितने महिला काफी ऊँचे एड़ी के सैंडील पहनती है. पर इस प्रकार का सैंडील पहनना महँगा पड़ सकता है क्योंकि इससे उनको अपने शरीर को नियंत्रित करने के लिए कमर व रीढ़ की हड्डी पर विशेष भार देना पड़ता है. जिस कारण से ऐसे महिला को बराबर कमर या पीठ दर्द की शिकायत होने लगती है. अतः ऊँचे एड़ी वाले सैंडील नहीं ही पहनना चाहिए.

इलाज से बेहतर है रोकथाम-
रीढ़ की हड्डी से संबंधित विकारों के लिए इलाज से बेहतर रोकथाम ही है. यदि हम अपने कार्य-प्रणाली, रहन-सहन पर ध्यान देंगे जिससे कि हमारे रीढ़ की हड्डी अधिक समय तक गलत स्थिति में या अनावश्यक तनाव के स्थिति में न रहे तो हम हम रीढ़ की हड्डी से संबंधित तकलीफों से बच सकते हैं. जैसे गलत मुद्रा में बैठकर काम करने से यदि रीढ़ की हड्डी या पीठ में दर्द आ जाये तो यदि हम दर्द निवारक गोली खाकर दर्द को दबा देंगे पर अपने कार्य-शैली को नहीं ठीक करेंगे तो दर्द हमें दुबारा हो सकती है. इसलिए इलाज से बेहतर रोकथाम है. पर यदि रीढ़ की हड्डी से संबंधित कोई विशेष परेशानी हो गयी हो जैसे रीढ़ की हड्डी के कोई मणका या कोई पार्ट अपने स्थान से खिसक गया हो या टूट गया हो जिस कारण से दर्द या अन्य कोई बीमारी हो गया हो तो तुरत अपने चिकित्सक से उचित इलाज करानी चाहिए.

रीढ़ व मांसपेशी के समस्या के लिए इलाज के नई तकनीक रेडियो फ्रिक्वेन्सी न्यूरोटमी-
आजकल रीढ़ व मांसपेशियों से जुड़े समस्या बहुत ही आ रहे हैं. पर इलाज के नाम पर फिजियोथेरापी व दर्द निवारक दवा ही हैं. पर जब इससे काम न हो तब सर्जरी ही करानी पड़ती है. पर आधुनिक इलाज के तकनीक में एक नई तकनीक रेडियो फ्रिक्वेन्सी न्यूरोटमी आया है जिसमें कम से कम चीर-फाड़ या सर्जिकल प्रक्रिया के बिना ही इलाज किया जाता है. इस तकनीक से इलाज में दर्द भी कम या नहीं के बराबर होती है. इस तकनीक में रेडियो फ्रिक्वेन्सी वेव्स का प्रयोग किया जाता है.
