If you are suffering from back pain, you’re likely having trouble living your day-to-day life without interruption. Thankfully, solutions are available. Disc-related back pain is a very common problem and it can often be treated without surgery.

The diagnostic procedure begins with a thorough physical assessment. This will include a review of your medical history, analysis of your symptoms, and physical examination. Imaging devices such as x-ray, MRI, or CT scans may be used to take a closer look at the spine. This information will help pinpoint the source of the pain.
Discogenic back pain usually manifests and lower back pain spasms. The pain usually gets worse when bending, sitting, or standing. Lying down may be the only position where you find relief.
