Curb the Pain
Whilst some of us have no choice but to lead a crazy-busy life, do not forget to listen to our body when it is crying in pain. Amongst the top causes of chronic pain are headaches, neck and low back pain.
Frequent headaches are not uncommon in the general population and often dismissed as tension headache or migraine. However, a headache could be due to a more serious cause such as a growing tumour, a bleeding stroke or a ballooning brain vessel about to burst and therefore, needs to be evaluated early as these conditions are potentially fatal.
The other common sites where aches and pains are felt are in the neck and lower back. This is usually due to degenerative disc disease with or without nerve root involvement. When there is prolonged pain related to other symptoms such as pain at rest, disturbed gait, bladder and bowel dysfunction, investigations need to be under way particularly to exclude cord compression and/ or cancer.
You should not have to suffer in pain with current advances in diagnostic and treatment options.
Knowing that your vital organs and structures are in good shape and function is reassuring. ‘Portrait’ was curated to ‘paint a picture’ of almost your whole body, assessing different elements in the form of anatomy, physiology and biochemistry.
At Quantum, this is done by capitalising on our imaging expertise where we provide purposeful imaging, risk assessment and laboratory tests.
