Chronic Low Back Pain

Non-specific back pain could become chronic, in which the pain would prolong and last more than the expected time for the injured tissue to recover. At this time, a simple medical model of treatment may not be able to address this multifaceted problem. A comprehensive multidisciplinary assessment could help to identify the various confounding factors so that the problem could be tackled in a holistic manner. Surgery and various form of pain controlling intervention could be decided with the Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon to restore the function of the patients.
