Low Back Pain

Accurate Diagnosis Is Vital For Treatment to Be Effective

It is normal human tendency to ignore back pain till it aggravates to a point that you are unable to go about even the most mundane daily tasks. Back pain is a symptom which could be attributed to several factors and often it is not possible to pinpoint to exact cause of pain. Occurrence of back pain can be due to a variety of reasons ranging from simple muscular injury, minor disc bulges or arthritis in facet joints which heal quickly by simple treatment to something truly serious like infection, vertebral fracture or tumour.

As a specialist I determine the treatment option only after having examined your condition and having delved into your medical history and conducted investigations if deemed necessary. Depending on the working diagnosis I suggest a preferred treatment option or chalk out a treatment plan that could be spread over several months.
