I have been struggling with blogs recently as my time has been stretched all over the place so by way of apology below you can download a document which contains the information I wrote as part of the Health Education England modules (this is contained in the serious pathology of the spine module). These are open access if you work for the NHS.
Please bear in mind the following caveats, I was restricted on word count so it is at best an overview of the condition, it was also part of a wider piece of work (the modules) which means it is written standing on the shoulders of other parts of the module. I hope to get time to expand on this as I did with my RA blogs (here and here and here and here and here!)
As usual feedback is greatly appreciated and any further reading for me please send it my way!
PLEASE REMEMBER – THIS BLOG IS NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR CLINICAL REASONING, IF YOU ARE UNSURE GET ADVICE
