The spine is a movable structure that adjusts itself to all of the movements dynamically. In some cases, the delicate balance between stability and dynamism is out of sync – the individual vertebral bodies move around more than they should. Those instabilities and abnormal movabilities often cause pain and thus it is important to restore the necessary support to the back without tightening it too much.
Dynamic stabilization seeks to maintain the natural dynamic of the spine. Thus, at Wirbelsäulenzentrum am Stiglmaierplatz, our surgeons insert normally use those implants that will give the back support but not completely stiffen it (see image: Synthes).
This operative procedure is only useful in particular cases. Please come to us for a consultation in order to find out whether this therapy method is potentially suitable for you.
