Most people will experience minor back problems and pain at one time or another.
Whether you have a disc problem, spinal stenosis or a lumbar strain, you’ll get the best possible care from the board-certified New Jersey spine specialists at Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute.
Your risk of back pain increases as you age, if you have a family history of back pain, sit for long periods, lift heavy objects or have a degenerative disease, such as osteoporosis. Although most back problems occur in adults aged 20 to 50, if they occur in children under the age of 20 or in adults over the age of 50, they’re more likely to have a serious cause. Symptoms may begin gradually, and occur most often from improper movement or posture while lifting, standing, walking, sitting, or even sleeping. The pain often goes away within four weeks without treatment. If your pain is severe or lasts longer, and you think you require a spine surgeon, the specialists at AOSMI of NJ can provide immediate diagnosis and treatment.
