Am I a Candidate
People who suffer from spinal abnormalities would experience symptoms such as pain, weakness or numbness in the neck, back and extremities. Majority of them also complain of tingling sensation in the limbs and may lose coordination as well. In general, all these patients are managed by conservative measures recommending lifestyle modification, and anti-inflammatory medication.
