Individuals suffering from back pain do not need to resign themselves to a lifetime of physical anguish. Medical advances have made it possible to correct many spine-related issues with a minimally invasive procedure. To learn more about these conditions and their modes of treatment, explore the following resources.
- Scoliosis is a condition that curves the spine from side to side. MedicineNet.com lists its causes, symptoms, and treatment options.
- Kyphosis produces a curving of the spine which results in a rounded back. The U.S. National Library of Medicine describes ways it can be corrected and prevented.
- Individuals who suffer vertebral fractures due to osteoporosis or other debilitating factors may be candidates for percutaneous vertebroplasty, a procedure that injects a cement-like substance into the vertebra to stabilize and strengthen it. The American Academy of Family Physicians details how this works.
- WebMD discusses cervical disc disease and its surgical treatment options: discectomy and cervical fusion.
