Back Pain

For some, back pain is a result of a herniated disk pressing on a nerve in the spine.

Some patients treat their symptoms with standard care, such as physical therapy and anti-inflammatory drugs. Others have the problem disk surgically removed.

Studies show that after three months, those who underwent surgery reported less pain than those who followed standard care.

However, after two-years, both groups saw significant improvement.
