Are you suffering from back pain & hoping to avoid surgery?
Frequently, unnecessary and inappropriate surgery is performed in an effort to resolve low-back pain. While there is unquestionably a time and a place for surgery to address low-back pain, current medical research indicates that conservative treatment of low-back pain is often as effective as or even more effective than surgery.1
What is “conservative treatment”? Depending on the individual patient, it can include a range of medical treatments from osteopathic manual manipulation and acupuncture to physical therapy and regenerative injection therapies, such as prolotherapy.
At the Kaplan Center our physicians have years of experience treating patients with chronic back pain conditions, and we completely reject the notion that “you just have to live with it.”
At your first visit, your Kaplan physician will take time exploring the onset of your condition, the specific nature of your symptoms and the overall status of your health. You’ll also be asked about the medications and therapies you’ve tried in the past, and what has and hasn’t worked for you. To gather additional information about your condition, specialized diagnostic laboratory testing may be necessary.
