Lower back pain is one of the most common medical problems reported by patients. While the severity and cause of back disorders vary, one thing common to most of these disorders is the major impact that lower back problems can have on patients’ lives.
Regardless of the cause and severity, our surgeons are specialists in diagnosing and treating lower back conditions, including spinal fractures, herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease and bulging discs.
You may be able to avoid back pain or prevent its recurrence by improving your physical condition, and learning and practicing proper body mechanics.
To keep your back healthy and strong:
At some time in their lives, most people will suffer from lower back pain. This pain can be due to a wide range of causes. For some lower back pain patients, there is a genetic component to their condition. Others may suffer through lower back pain brought on by a mechanical problem. Most often, lower back conditions are caused by injuries or the wear-and-tear of aging. The good news is that the majority of cases improve on their own. For pain that persists, a visit to a spine specialist is a necessity. Our orthopaedic surgeons provide expert treatment for patients with lower back pain and disorders. Diagnosis is accomplished through a combination of physical examinations and imaging tests, such as MRIs and CT scans.
After diagnosis, Dr. Kayal and his expert team can determine appropriate treatment for each patient. Conservative treatment may include rest or limited activity, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, braces, and steroidal injections. If lower back symptoms continue, surgery might be necessary.
