Rise in spinal problems among youth, says doctor

Tribune News Service

Panchkula, November 29

To create awareness on common spine problems and minimally invasive spine surgeries, a team of doctors from Paras Hospital, Panchkula, addressed mediapersons here on Saturday.

On the occasion, Dr Anil Dhingra said: “Every fifth Indian in the age group of 20-30 is suffering from some sort of spinal problem, which a decade ago, was seen only in senior citizens”.

There had been a 60 per cent increase in spinal problems in youth in the recent past, he said, adding that change in lifestyle, weight gain and lack of Vitamin D, B12, calcium and protein were the major reasons.
