Living with chronic back pain is living in hell on earth. It affects people not only physically, but emotionally as well, leaving many people lonely, depressed, disabled, and sometimes jobless. Low back pain is the leading cause of disability and the number 2 cause of missed work days in the United States, according to the North American Spine Society.
A generation ago, when our parents were our age, the only treatments available to treat their low back pain were either aspirin-like drugs or surgery. They were usually told by their doctors that they would “just have to live with it.”
Over the past decade, however, pain management physicians, working closely with scientists who study the anatomy and the way the nervous system works have discovered that identifying the structures that cause the low back pain is absolutely critical to prescribe an effective treatment plan and avoid surgery .
"The obvious advantage of the pain treatment techniques that we utilize in our practice is that they can be performed in a comfortable outpatient environment, outside of a hospital, they are highly effective, and are very safe in the right pair of hands", states Dr. Guevara. Long-term pain and suffering is fast becoming a ghost of the past. Armed with new treatment options, compassion and thorough medical examination, we are fortunate to live during a time in which we no longer have to live with our pain.
