Cauda Equina Syndrome is a serious neurological condition which occurs when the nerves of the cauda equine at the base of the spinal cord become compressed, often as a result of a prolapsed disc.
These nerves supply the bladder, bowel, genitals and lower limbs and damage to them can cause permanent, life-changing disability.
