Low back pain is one of the most common ailments patients come into our office for. Most people during the course of their life will wind up experiencing low back pain at one point in time or another. It could be just from waking up on the wrong side of the bed to falling, or to lifting something heavy that they're not used to. It could also be from a sports injury or a car accident. It's a very common ailment. Most low back pain issues can be treated conservatively. I would say 95% of my patients do not need surgical intervention for low back pain. Obviously it depends on the diagnosis as to what the pain generator is that's causing the low back pain. But at the end of the day, we do a full evaluation. We do the appropriate studies and come to a diagnosis and based on the diagnosis, we use the latest techniques available to reduce that pain, hopefully to get rid of that pain, without surgical intervention. If after all the conservative management treatments fail, then we will consider surgical intervention if necessary.
