LOWER BACK PAIN
Four out of every five physical medicine patients seek treatment for back pain, which can stem from a variety of causes. Sometimes caused by a pulled muscle or damaged disc, lower back pain can be the result of accident, injury, or even something as simple as lifting improperly or bending the wrong way. To determine the correct course of treatment, it’s important to find a medical professional capable of accurately determining the root cause of lower back pain.
Back pain has traditionally been treated through the rest, hot and cold packs, pain medication, muscle relaxants, and physical therapy. Sometimes these low back pain treatments fail, leaving the patient to struggle with chronic pain and doctors resort to surgery. Unfortunately the surgery often results in Failed Back Surgery Syndrome where patients can report a recurrence or even worsening of symptoms within a year or two of the procedure.
