Back Pain Caused By Arthritis, Injuries, And Aging
Arthritis, injuries, and lifetime use can result in lower back pain, as well as numbness, weakness, and pain in your legs. Bones may shift or slip out of place resulting in reduced mobility and pinched nerves. Sometimes these symptoms do not respond to non-surgical forms of treatment. Often this occurs when spinal vertebrae are fractured. Fractures almost always require spinal fusion. However, pain and immobility can also result from cartilage damage in the back that takes place as you age. When this is the case, your doctor may recommend lumbar spine fusion surgery in North Idaho as the best option for full recovery.
During surgery, bone grafts are placed around your spine and between vertebrae. After surgery your body will work to heal these grafts, which will join your vertebrae together. This stops motion from occurring between the vertebrae, so that you can get back to an active lifestyle.
