What Should I do?
Are you living with bad back pain? Do you suffer from Sciatica pain or pain going down your legs? Maybe your pain is really intense right in the middle of your back? If so, you may be really confused right now as to what you should do. You have a couple of choices.
The first is a medical doctor. This is where the majority of people think to go first when they have pain. But let's take a look at what a medical doctor can provide for you. The first is antiinflamatory and muscle relaxor medications. While this sounds great, lets keep in mind that there is a reason that your back is inflamed. Taking a pill to get rid of the inflamation is not going to address that problem and the inflamation will just keep coming back. You will end up taking the medications with no end in sight. Medical doctors can also do cortizone shots and that is a way to cover up pain, but it is still not addressing the cause of the pain. In this case the medication will work for a while then come back. The next time the cotizone will be less and less effective so long term this doesn't seem to be a great option.
The medical doctor might send you to a surgeon for a consult. Most people are not excited about a surgery unless they are in extreeme pain and even then, it's not a fun option to think about. There was a very good study preformed by the State of Ohio that discusses the potential outcoms of surgery. If you click on the green box right below, you can read the results of the study.
Another option that many people think of is a chiropractor. For people in severe back pain the thought of someone cracking their back can be a bit intimidating and I don't blame you. However, there are some very advanced techniques available that don't involve a physical adjustment and can still get amazing results. The role of the chiropractor is to search for the cause of the pain and resolve it. While this method is does not have the immediate effect that a pill or shot would, the results are likely to be much better over the long term.
Here are some great resources you can use to help make a very intelligent decision on this important life choice.
The State of Ohio spends a great deal of money each year for people with back pain who are on workers compensation claims. The State wanted to find out how effective back surgery really was so they commissioned this very comprehensive study which provides us with great informaion.
Almost 1,500 patients were included in this study. All of them had back pain and sciatica pain which was bad enough to keep them from working. Half of these patients decided to have surgery, the other half decided not to. The patients were followed for 2 years after this decision.
This report summarizes the findings. I believe you will find it very informative and a great deal of help in making your personal decision.
I realize that this decision is not an easy one because I had to make it myself a few years back.
Most people have no desire to undergo back surgery but if your back pain and / or sciatica pain gets really bad, the idea of surgery doesn't seem so bad especially if you have ben trying different ways to help the problem iand nothing is working.
Before the pain gets to the point that you can't take it anymore, it is important to know and understand what your options are.
With a thorough understanding of your treatment options, you can make an informed and intelligent decision as to what your next step is and whether the pain is severe enough that you are willing to take the risk of back surgery.

Have you found that you are enjoying life less and less because your back is hurting more and more? If so, now is the time to do something about it.
For 20 years our office has specialized in helping people with back pain to get back to living the lifestyle they want. Many of our patients come in having lost almost all hope of feeling better because they thought they tried everything including:
muscle relaxers, pain killers,
physical therapy, their medical doctor,
shots and even acupuncture
Many had all but given up hope. In fact you might be one of those people who decided a while back that after trying so many things, you weren't going to waste your time anymore. But . . . there may be hope after all...
Back Pain - People who have back pain suffer from a number of problems. It could be a strain on the muscles and ligaments from an injury or it could be caused by biomechanical problems coming from other parts of the spine. It could also be caused because the nerves that are going to that part of the body are not working properly, and the normal healing power of the body which should be able to take care of injuries is not functioning at 100%. This is one
of the most common problems we see and the easiest to recover from. A computerized exam can illustrate whether this is the problem you have or not and if it is, how bad the problem is.
Sciatica - One of the most dreadful problems is Sciatica. People who suffer from this problem often have pain radiating straight from the back. Others have the pain going down one leg or both. The pain may extend to the thigh or go all the way down to the toes. Many times the pain is described as burning other times people say their leg or thigh is numb.
However the pain is, the problem is usually caused because pressure is being put on the nerves of the lower back. The pressure can be there because the bones of the back are not aligned the way they should be, or it could be because the disc that is between the bones of the back is bulging and that is what is causing the pressure. All too often the treatments involve relieving the pressure of the nerves, which is important but that is where the treatment stops. If you don't address why the problem got there in the first place, the pain is just going to come back.
I have 20 years of experience and have helped hundreds of patients with back pain over that time. People have come to this office with just about every level of pain there is from the person who says, "It's just a minor backache once in a while" to the person how says, "I'm living in debilitating pain every minute of the day and I have a surgery scheduled in just a few weeks"
