Backaches, Sypondylosis and Low Back Pain

Back pain is the evolutionary penalty for the vertical posture of man. Almost 90% of back pain can be treated conservatively. The spine is made up of 33 vertebrae with intervertebral discs & its supporting ligaments, cartilage, muscles and nerves. The Intervertebral disc can cause back pain due to degeneration, internal disruption, infection, tumor infiltration, etc.
After confirmation of diagnosis, and adequate trial of conservative treatment, an epidural steroid injection can be considered to give pain relief to resume normal activity.
