In brief: Watch for gimmicks

Lasers are sometimes used in certain minimally invasive spine surgeries for herniated discs that have failed to respond to nonop care.

In brief: Doubt it

I have my doubts with laser type treatments.
I would recommend conservative treatment and a formal work up by a spinal specialist.
