Pain that radiates to the arms or legs with or without numbness or weakness
This can be caused by stenosis of the spinal canal or nerve roots. A herniated disc or degenerative changes of the spine may be responsible for this. But often, the cause is irritation or blockage of the sacroiliac joint (SIG). Whether conservative or surgical treatment is required must be decided individually in each case.
Our orthopedic specialists and trauma surgeons in Germering will be happy to consult you about therapy that is optimal for your problem.
