People experience lower back pain for many different reasons. Sometimes, the pain goes away on its own after a few days or weeks. But other times, the pain is persistent and long lasting, or even seems to get worse over time.
There may be radiating arm or leg pain, radiating numbness and tingling or weakness associated with the back pain, too. If you're experiencing these symptoms, it's important to know that relief is available through surgery, even after other treatments have failed. Visit New Jersey Neck & Back Institute, P.C. for more information about lower back pain surgical treatment options.
Lower back pain can be caused by anything from an injury to natural degeneration of the spine. Some of the most common causes of lower back pain that might benefit from surgery include:
A lower back pain diagnosis is usually confirmed through a physical exam and medical history review. X-rays, MRI’s, CT scans and other tests can provide further insight into the condition of your spine. Using this information, board certified spine surgeon Dr. LaRocca will be able to determine the best course of surgical treatment to alleviate your lower back pain and improve your quality of life.
