What conditions cause neck or back pain?
Neck or back pain may present as a result of a car accident, traumatic sports injury or serious fall. Most cases of neck or back pain can be treated with conservative, nonsurgical treatment. Most physicians will encourage you to partake in several weeks or months of conservative treatment such as physical therapy, chiropractic care and low-impact exercises.
Some conditions, though, are not caused by a traumatic injury but are brought on by natural wear and tear. As the spine ages, it begins to deteriorate. Some people never become symptomatic while others struggle with pain. Below are some common conditions that cause neck or back pain:
- Bulging/herniated disc
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
Is surgery really necessary?
Most people live with chronic neck or back pain for an average of nine years. If you have tried several months of conservative treatment without relief, surgery may be your next step. Laser Spine Institute’s minimally invasive spine surgeries use a small incision of less than 1 inch and a muscle-sparing dilating tubes to access the spine. At our state-of-the-art facilities, you will find an inviting atmosphere, caring staff members and expert medical care.
