Spine conditions affect almost every other person on the planet. Everyone who’d encountered such symptoms wishes to be rid of them as rapidly and as efficiently as possible. Israeli experts have an excellent record in treating even the most complicated pathologies. In fact, back pain is one of the most common reasons medical tourists travel here.
The first stage of the program is thorough screening, which can take between a few hours and 3 days (depending on investigations required). Every diagnostics program will include a high-res MRI of the spine.
Spine treatment may be necessary due to congenital defects, injuries or modic changes. The exact nature of treatment is determined on a case-by-case basis. If irreversible, potentially life-threatening changes such as disc herniation or protrusion, or vertebral fractures are detected, surgical intervention is usually required. Congenital defects such as scoliosis, lordosis, kyphosis and neuralgia are usually treated conservatively (by means of medications, manual treatment, massages and specialized gymnastics regimens).
Please note that surgical techniques used in Israel are designed to get patients back on their feet as soon as possible. This is why in the absolute majority of cases the post-operative rehabilitation period does not exceed 10 days. Thanks to intensive therapeutic procedures the patient undergoes during that period they will normally be able to walk out of the hospital on their own two feet.
