Back pain is one of the most common complaints, affecting eight out of 10 Americans at some point in their lives. Ninety percent of single episodes of back pain become recurrent. Research shows that the most common causes of back pain or injury are poor physical condition, poor posture, improper body mechanics and the repetitive use of incorrect bending or lifting techniques.
A group of surgical procedures targeted for specific injuries or disease processes are used to correct conditions of the neck (cervical spine) and lower back (lumbar spine). Commonly affected by injury, the cervical and lumbar spine become the two areas where rupture or disc herniation may require surgical intervention.
