Surgical Treatment

QUESTION: Suddenly I have a stiff back, what should I do?

In case of sudden back stiffness, you should lie on your back with a pillow under your knees. If the pain subsides after a while in this position, there is no problem. However, if the pain does not go away on its own or is accompanied by pain radiating from the buttock to the leg, you should consult a doctor for examination and treatment.

QUESTION : How long should bed rest be done for low back pain?

In the past, bed rest was the mainstay of treatment for low back pain. However, studies have shown that prolonged bed rest does more harm than good for bone, muscle and joint health. For this reason, partial bed rest for a few days is currently recommended to reduce severe back and leg pain.

QUESTION : Is surgery the definitive solution for herniated disc?

There are various treatment methods such as medication, physical therapy, exercise, lumbar injections, etc. that are applied in addition to surgery for pain caused by herniated discs. Lumbar herniated disc surgery is performed in cases where there is a risk of weakness in the muscles in the leg or when there is no response to the treatments. Mild pain in the lower back may persist after surgery.
