Spine Problems Increasing Among Middle Aged Adults in Singapore
On 6 April 2015, Dr Hee Hwan Tak was invited by Lian He Wan Bao Health Monthly to share his views about the increasing occurrence of spine problems among middle aged adults in Singapore. The cause of these spine problems are using caused by spinal degeneration, where patients will experience back pain, numbness, weakness in their limbs or even shooting pains in their legs.
To prevent such symptoms from worsening, Dr Hee suggests that early treatment is crucial. Depending on the severity of the problem, Dr Hee may suggest back braces or minimally invasive spine surgery. To determine which is the most suitable treatment for your back pain, make an appointment at the orthopaedic clinic for a comprehensive diagnosis.
