What are the common causes of back pain?

As per some of the researches, 80-85% of the back pain is age-related and resolve on its own. Approximately 10-20% tend to develop into chronic back pain with recurrent episodes. Conditions like degenerative disc disease and arthritis are the most common causes of back pain. Certain factors like weak muscles, poor flexibility, and bad posture aggravate the underlying conditions.

Why Mumbai is the choice of place for spine surgery in India?

Due to excellent connectivity and digital services in the city, the quality of healthcare services, especially for international patients, has been enhanced. Everything needed can be ordered online. Other than this, the hospitals are very well equipped with advanced infrastructure. The staff in each hospital is educated and well-versed with international languages.

Can smoking cause spine disorders?

Absolutely yes. Smoking causes shrinkage of blood vessels throughout the body. Since the spinal disc already has meager blood supply as compared to the rest of the body. Hence smoking accelerates the process of the degenerative process by reducing the amount of blood and oxygen to the tissues. Moreover, smoking increases the pain perception for those who undergo any treatment. The increased pain perception may cause elevated use of narcotics to control pain and thus resistance to the non-surgical treatment options. Not only this, but the overall success rate of the surgery is also much lesser in smokers than that in non-smokers.

Can spinal conditions be treated non-surgically?

Yes. Certain spinal conditions like sprains and strains in lumbar and cervical regions and mild disc herniations can be treated non-surgically with physical therapy, narcotic medications, anti-inflammatory medications or painful injections. Therapies like chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture also have a great impact.
