Cauda Equina Syndrome

Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES) is a rare condition, occurring in one to three in every 100,000 people.

The cauda equina is formed by nerve roots in the lower back. CES is caused by compression of the nerves. Without early interventions, the possible consequences can be devastating, including irreversible damage to bladder and bowel function, and sexual dysfunction.
