The main musculoskeletal pathology.

The pathology of the spine is the main cause of musculoskeletal disease. It is estimated that 90% of adults will experience back pain at some point in their life. Of these, between 80 and 90% will find a solution to their problem with a non-invasive treatment. However, despite the frequency, it is a highly complex condition in its approach. For this reason, the Column Unit of Hospital Quirónsalud Torrevieja has a team of first level professionals of all specialties related to the spine and its bone, muscle and nerve structure, which take the patient as the axis of the whole process and with a work methodology aimed at obtaining the best results and always in the least invasive way.

For this, the Unit is a pioneer in the implementation of the first protocol developed following the same parameters as the ISO standard to evaluate the efficacy and results of treatment, according to the highest standards of healthcare excellence.


Personalized attention.

Considering the particularities that the pathology of the spine is associated with, the Column Unit offers personalized attention to each patient through a Nursing Professional who accompanies the patient throughout the entire process, from the first appointment until the total recovery and that ensures, at all times, that the patient understands the diagnosis, their treatment options and possible outcomes.

The most complex cases are evaluated jointly by all the members of the care team to determine the best treatment options. In those cases in which it is considered that surgery is the best route of treatment, the least invasive route will be applied, according to the work philosophy of the Unit, since it favors the patient's rapid recovery. In cases in which the least invasive route is not indicated, the team of professionals have extensive experience in the surgeries of
