Are You Suffering from Chronic Back Pain?

Chronic Back Pain

Are you suffering from chronic back pain? Chronic back pain is defined as lasting pain for more than three months. The pain may be present throughout the day or may come and go. Spinal arthritis, Spinal stenosis, myofascial pain syndrome, and disc problems are common causes of chronic back pain. You can diagnose the pain by taking some tests such as CT scans, MRI, bone scans, and even X-rays.

Once you have found it, you need to treat the issue, and surgery is not the only way to treat chronic back pain. Here are the lists of other treatments:

  • Physical therapy – Under the guidance of your physician and spine physical therapist, you need to do exercise.
  • Diet – You can follow a healthy diet after consulting your doctor to maintain weight and minimize back pain.
  • Mindfulness and meditation – You will get frustrated and depressed because of the pain, and practicing yoga will help you.
  • Lifestyle modifications – Try to bring changes in your routine lifestyle, including quitting smoking.
  • Injection-based treatments – Some injection-based treatments for this back pain and try them.
  • Alternative treatments – Laser therapy, acupuncture, and other nonsurgical spine treatments will effectively treat chronic back pain.
  • Pharmacologic treatments – Chronic back pain can be managed with analgesics, anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants, and other medications.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lin.  I had surgery about 10 months ago and all the pain I was in before is gone.  I am able to be physically active again without any of the pain I had for 20 years.

Dr. Ali is a awesome doctor and I recommend his services for spine surgery. I had spinal surgery on 9/9/19, I’m healing nicely & feel great. Dr. Ali is the doctor to choose if you need a doctor for any kind of back problem.

I chose Dr. Lin because he had done my wife’s back surgery approximately 10 years ago, & it was VERY successful. I knew IMMEDIATELY (after surgery) that he had fixed the problem!

What a blessing it is to have been led by our Lord to see Dr Eric Lin. My surgery was a complete success!!! I would highly recommend him to anyone with spinal disc problems and even surgery.
