THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
Back pain problems are often complex
Compared to other medical conditions, there are relatively few standardized approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of back pain. While some diagnoses are relatively straightforward for many spine conditions there is little agreement among spine specialists about a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Process of trial and error
Pain is experienced very differently for each individual, and the effectiveness of a particular treatment will often differ from person to person. For example, an epidural steroid injection for a herniated disc may provide instant pain relief for some people but not for others.
Chronic pain is different from acute pain
Unlike acute pain, the level and extent of chronic pain does not reflect the extent of tissue damage. For example, severely degenerated discs may not produce much pain at all and discs with little degeneration can produce severe pain.
