We all have aches and pains from time to time, but depending on your overall health, age and physical capability, standard medicine is often not enough. Patients are being overmedicated with prescriptions and receiving unnecessary procedures.
80 percent of adults will fall victim to painful disorders of their lower backs at some point in their lives. It is the most common cause of disability for people under the age of 45, and second only to the common cold as a cause for a visit to the doctor. Back disorders account for nearly a third of the occupational injuries involved in lost work time.
A healthy and strong lower back is critical for virtually every activity of normal daily living, like sitting, squatting, lifting and walking. The lower back takes a lot of strain and stress during daily activities.
A variety of factors can cause lower back problems, such as genetic predisposition, old age, disuse and injury. Over time, the loss of muscle mass, bone mass, and strength in the lower back occurs. As the strength in the lumbar muscles fades, the force of gravity overwhelms the muscular support structure, and as a result, the spaces between the vertebrae start to narrow.
When you’re dealing with chronic back pain, little else in life can be enjoyed. The agonizing and sometimes debilitating discomfort can cause us to lose out on the important things, like spending time with our families, being productive at work and even the simplest daily activities can require monumental strength to muster through them. One of the most widespread causes of lower back pain is osteoarthritis of the spine. This causes the joints and discs cartilage to break down. Often times, bone spurs will occur, which lead to nerve pressure on the spinal column. Nerve pain will cause numbness, weakness, pain and tingling in the arms, neck, and legs.
When pain medications, NSAID’s, physical therapy and other alternative treatments nose-
dive, patients should know that a minimally invasive procedure is commonly used to treat the nerves in the lower back effectively.
