We often take our lower backs for granted. Not only do they allow us to bend, twist and lift heavy loads, but they are also responsible for protecting the critical nerves that connect the brain to the body. When lower back pain strikes, it can be irritating at best and debilitating at worst.
Back pain comes in many forms; shooting or stabbing, aching or soreness, an inability to move regularly, and even pain referred to the legs. Low back pain can be caused by osteoarthritis, facet joint syndrome, degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, or muscle strain. There are more than 200 different forms of treatment for lower back pain, however no single treatment stands out as superior to any of the others. When conservative treatments fail to relieve pain, your doctor may feel compelled to consider surgery, however, the success rate of surgery is less than 60% for most causes of lower back pain, and involves significant risk and recovery time. Thankfully, there are innovative, minimally invasive treatments available. Advanced regenerative therapy may be the best solution for your back pain.
