Relief Possible Without Back Surgery 

Medicine notes that back pain relief is achievable conservatively! Spine & Sports Rehab Center is enthusiastic to see this latest back pain treatment study. Researchers monitored patients with lumbar disc herniations (most at L4-5 and L5-S1). These patients were 38 years old on average, just the age that spinal research reports as average for back pain sufferers to have a bad case of back pain that’s been building for years. These patients suffered with low back pain and sciatica that went into one or both legs. Many patients had already tried physiotherapy and other medical treatment unsuccessfully before this intervention.
