Just like other parts of the body, the spine has to go through enormous amounts of stress regularly without us being aware of the amount of physical pressure we put onto it. With age, the flexibility and the health of the spinal cord decreases incredibly. These and other aspects of the aging process may be accelerated if you’ve previously experienced a spinal injury, are overweight, or you smoke, or if your daily activities subject your spine to a greater-than-average amount of wear and tear. The spine and spinal cord are attached to the brain and form two of the most important parts of the neurological system in our body. Back and neck pain can occur from many different spinal abnormalities. Since each feels pain in a different way, our goal at Fortis is to provide you with individualized brain care and spine care with a warm touch, helping you back to a healthier life as fast as possible.

Brain tumours can occur at any age in any person, as with a lot of tumours, age plays a crucial role as people become more prone to get them as they get older. Some types of brain tumour, though, are more common in younger adults. Children can also develop brain tumours. One of the best neurology hospitals in the county, Fortis’ experts say normal human cells grow and function based mainly on the information contained in each cell’s DNA. Like tumors in other parts of the body, brain & spinal tumors too, are caused by changes in the DNA inside cells. DNA is the essential chemical that makes up our genes. It controls how our cells function. We usually look like our parents because they are the source of our DNA. But DNA affects more than how we look. Certain gene changes cause some inherited symptoms that changes or damages the healthy growth of DNA. This type of changes increases the risk of developing a brain tumor.
