1 doctor agrees

In brief: Many

1) are you a spine specialist or do you treat many spine injuries? 2) are their non surgical ways to treat this 3) what are the success rates for the options you have offered? (not anectdotal personal results - what does the spine literature say about the proposed options! 4 in general to all patients - beware of fads and advertisements regarding back pain treatments that sound "too good.
".
