Lumbar spine disorders is a broad category and generally is the more medical term category for back pain. Lumbar spine problems can include anything from a simple back strain to scoliosis to severe spinal stenosis. Depending on the exact pathology, your treatment approach will vary. Advances in medicine allow most types of back pain to be handled non-operatively. In some severe cases, advanced spine procedures or even surgery may be recommended. However, in all cases, successful treatment of back pain is a team approach and you as the patient will become one of the most important tools for speeding recovery. It will require a solid commitment on your part to diligently participate in the back “homework” that will be asked of you. Unfortunately, there is no “magic pill” when it comes to that bothersome back pain that may have been brewing for months or years, but at Dr. Kristen Cardamone we will work as a team with you to get you back on track as fast as we can!
