The Spinal Foundation

Mr Knight provides patients with an experienced and thorough assessment of their spinal problems and treatment using Innovative Pain Management procedures including Cluneal Nerve Trigger Point Radiofrequency Ablation.

His advice is based upon 30 years of unique aware state patient feedback experience providing special insight into the causes of spinal and related pain but because of indemnity costs has recently ceased to offer endoscopic spinal surgery and will refer to colleagues as necessary.

The purpose of this web site is to inform patients and make them aware that there are effective alternatives to open conventional spine surgery and to understand the long term benefits of Endoscopic Minimal Invasive Spine Surgery and its potential treatment of degenerative spinal disease, failed back surgery, disc protrusions, extrusions or sequestra, osteophytosis, lateral recess stenosis, axial stenosis, spondylolytic spondylolisthesis, degenerative spondylolisthesis, spinal “instability”, discogenic pain, high intensity zones, leaking discs, perineural scarring, degenerative scoliosis and failed cervical surgery.

We can help those deemed too elderly or infirm for surgery, those undergoing pain management or behavioural therapy - even if you were told ‘the pain is in your head’ or ‘you’ll just have to live with it’ or you have "Memory Pain" or “it is just wear and tear” by conventional doctors and surgeons. We are at the cutting edge - seeking means to rebuild your discs, and ways to restore your love for life.
