Lower Back Problems can Linger for a Long Time

spine healthLower back problems have the potential to linger for months (or years) on end. Just when you think you’re making progress, you come to realize that you’ve once again tweaked your injury.

Recently, we consulted with a patient who re-injured a lower back injury when working around home. After first being treated by at orthopedic practice, he came to us when he realized that the injury was not getting better on its own.

After a second MRI, it was clear that a surgical solution was the best way to cure his injury once and for all. Here’s what the patient had to say about the procedure:

The surgery went GREAT! I walked that afternoon with a walker for the 1st time and I was dumbfounded at how steady my gate was and how easy it was to predict what my legs did. I felt 20 years younger. Every aspect of my recovery of the past 16 days has been wonderful.

For us, there’s nothing better than hearing this from our patients. It puts a smile on our faces to realize that we’re making a big difference in the lives of people who are struggling with serious issues.
