Low Back Pain
Low back pain refers to pain in the lumbosacral spinal and paraspinal regions which may or may not radiate to the legs. The differential diagnosis of low back pain is broad which may include sciatica, lumbar sprain, herniated discs or spinal stenosis. Educating patients about the basic anatomy and biomechanics of the spine is of the utmost importance. We work to discover the root of your problem and direct patient care towards functional restoration using a multi-modal approach to pain management.
