Causes of Lower Back Pain
Sometimes, back pain can be debilitating and prevent people from performing normal daily activities. Dr. Jose Mena, an Interventional Spine Specialist with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, discusses the different causes of back pain, including osteoarthritis, disk degeneration and disk injuries, spinal stenosis and sprains. Symptoms may vary, but he highlights that early treatment and intervention might prevent chronic nerve damage due to long-term nerve compression. Dr. Mena explains different therapies available, starting with the non-invasive options whenever possible.
