AN URGENT PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE

Adhesive arachnoiditis (AA) has become an urgent public health issue. It now affects millions and is increasing in number. Unlike other causes of back pain, AA is an inflammatory disease inside the spinal canal which, if untreated and unchecked, may cause unbearable pain, dysfunction of legs and internal organs, dementia, a generalized autoimmune disorder, and adrenal failure. All its complications can lead to a suffering, shortened lifespan. This report calls for immediate action to diagnose, treat, and prevent AA.
