When a person has pain in their back, it can become unbearable over a length of time. Many different things can cause this type of pain including athletic injuries. Common athletic injuries are usually caused by improper gear, accidents or poor training.
Back problems can also be caused by sitting improperly at a computer, lifting something wrong and numerous other things. Fortunately, it is now possible to find relief with a method called North America Spine AccuraScope. This method has brought relief to many people who have suffered from back pain for many years.
Many times, it is found that the cause of the pain is a herniated disc. Discs are located between each vertebrae in the spine, allowing these bones to move without scraping against each other. Between each disc is a jelly-like substance shaped like a doughnut. When a disc becomes herniated, or ruptured, this substance will leave the vertebrae, allowing them to rub against each other and expose a nerve. This causes severe pain when walking or bending.
The AccuraScope procedure concentrates on pain in the neck, upper and lower back. The type of treatment used depends on where the pain is located. In the neck, for example, a needle is inserted and a laser is used to shrivel the disc problem. No incision is involved. A similar procedure is used for the upper back, which eliminates the need for invasive surgery.
Lower back pain is treated with a small incision and the insertion of a flexible tube. Then instruments, including a camera, are inserted to determine the problem and make the proper repairs. This lower back pain may be the herniated disc, previously mentioned, a tear or other problems.
North America Spine has highly trained physicians on hand. These include specialists in Interventional Pain Management, Neurosurgery and Orthopedic Spine Surgery. They are devoted to bringing back pain relief to their patients using their vast experience in minimal invasive surgery. Thus, it is possible for them to bring immediate relief for back pain that a patient may have suffered for years.
This type of back pain treatment usually takes less than 45 minutes, with the patient returning home immediately. Many can return to work the next day. This is advantageous for a busy person who cannot spend a great deal of time in the recovery period required for many regular spinal procedures.
There is no need to suffer from constant back pain when a procedure such as AccuraScope can relieve the problem and have the patient home in one day.
