Traumatology is a medical specialty focused on injuries to the musculoskeletal system and is one of the services offered at CreuBlanca. This branch addresses everything from diagnosis to the rehabilitation of bone and muscle conditions, with the aim of restoring the patient’s functionality.

The importance of the spine

In orthopaedics and traumatology, the spine is considered one of the pillars of the health and mobility of the human body. Understanding its importance is essential, as any alteration of its structure or function can directly impact people’s quality of life.

Taking care of the back to keep it healthy involves a combination of prevention, early diagnosis, and appropriate treatment.

For this reason, the roles of orthopaedic and traumatology specialists include educating about posture, promoting healthy habits, conducting examinations, and providing personalised treatments to care for patients’ health. In other words, they are responsible for diagnosing, treating, and preventing spinal injuries and diseases, avoiding long-term problems.

Main pathologies of the spine

The most common problems associated with the spine are:

  • Disc herniation or herniated disc: Displacement of soft material between the vertebrae, causing pain and numbness.
  • Scoliosis: An abnormal curvature of the spine that can cause instability in posture and pain.
  • Spinal stenosis: Reduction of space in the spinal canal, pressing on nerves and causing pain and weakness.
  • Fractures or vertebral injuries: Breakage of one or more bones of the spine that can cause intense pain and restricted movement.
  • Low back pain or lumbalgia: Discomfort in the lower back, in the lumbar area, often due to muscle tension or injuries.
  • Cervical pain: Discomfort in the neck, in the region of the cervical spine, caused by muscle tension, injuries, or degenerative diseases.
