I am very glad these procedures have helped you. Being that this is a public web site read by thousands each day, I must point out that not every treatment works for everyone.

If anyone is having back pain, they should seek a diagnosis from a spinal orthopedic surgeon and/or spinal neurosurgeon. No one should every have treatment before seeing a spine specialist for a diagnosis as it could make their condition worse.

After an accurate diagnosis is received then the patient may seek out the services of a pain management specialist that is a physiatrist. These doctors offer a wide variety of treatments that can help manage chronic pain.
