Most of us get back pain at some time or other. It reveals itself in many ways – a shooting pain in the leg, an ache in the back or sharp pain in the buttock, a spasm that leaves you unable to move. Sometimes it seems to come from nowhere or you may be able to point to an awkward twist, lifting a heavy object or an accident as the cause of your back problem. If this sounds familiar, you are one of the 8/10 people who experience back pain during their life. For most of us, it will be a brief episode which will resolve itself in days or weeks with the help of analgesia and without the need for intervention, but we want to know how to get better quicker and how to reduce the chances of it happening again.
The Back Pain Team is an ethos, which sees two consultants working closely together to provide rapid and accurate assessment and management of back pain and spinal pathology to bring about the best outcome for patients.
Dr Neal Evans is a Consultant Pain Management Specialist and Mr Stuart Blagg is a Consultant Spinal Surgeon. They are independent specialists. All medical care undertaken by them is done as individual medical practitioners. For more information about each of their private practices please follow the links below.
