Can neurosurgery reduce my back pain?
One of the causes of severe back pain is disc degeneration. Discs are the jelly-like “cushions” that lie between the vertebrae, absorbing impact and stopping the vertebrae from rubbing each other. When these discs become worn or start to push out you will feel pain. If this happens you are said to have a slipped disc, a herniated disc or degenerative disc disease.
If this occurs, doctors usually recommend treating the herniation first with rest, physiotherapy and medication or injection. But if these methods fail to provide enough relief, then several types of neurosurgery may help. Simply click on whichever procedure you are in need of to learn more.
