Webinar: Pitfalls in The Cervical Spine & How to Avoid Them

This event is available to purchase on-demand and was first delivered on Monday 8 June 2020.

Pains in the neck and scapular area have always been commonplace. However, since the outbreak of Covid-19, there has been an increase in the number of complaints due to video conferencing, uncomfortable home-working stations and even home gym injuries.

In this webinar our renowned speaker and Consultant Spinal Surgeon, Mr Bob Chatterjee, embarks on a ‘tour de force’ of neck problems. He takes us through the aetiology and identification of common conditions as well as those which are harder to spot. For instance, Cervical Spondylosis may be asymptomatic for many but when symptoms do occur, they typically include pain and stiffness in the neck. If not caught early on, this could lead to tingling, numbness and weakness in the limbs, lack of coordination, difficulty walking and even loss of bladder or bowel control. We also discuss Cervical Myelopathy, characterized by clumsiness in hands and gait imbalance, and Cervical Stenosis, or narrowing of the spinal canal. Lastly, we delve into the root causes of Cervical Radicular pain, which can result in neurological deficits such as numbness, weakness or altered reflexes anywhere from the neck to the fingertips. 

If your patients present with any of these symptoms, we cover how to spot the red flags and tell-tale signs to make an accurate diagnosis from physical examination. We also look at the frequently missed diagnoses from more serious conditions hidden amongst the common ones and how to identify where you could go wrong.

Lastly, Mr Chatterjee discusses both the surgical and conservative treatment options for your patients, including epidural steroid injections, exercises, joint manipulation and more.
