Back Pain Clinics
We Treat Back Pain at Its Source
Roughly 80 percent of the world’s population will experience back pain at some point in their lives. According to the National Institutes of Health, back pain is the fifth most common reason people see a doctor and the number one cause of disability and workers’ compensation claims.
There are several factors that can contribute to back pain:
- Age – The components of the spine grow weaker over time, and as we age we become more susceptible to back injuries and conditions like herniated discs.
- Health habits & history – Smoking, inadequate exercise, and being overweight all increase the chances of back problems. In addition, long periods of sitting, lifting heavy weights, and performing physically repetitive tasks can wear down and weaken the spine.
- Lifestyle – Stress and poor posture appear to play a role in back pain development. Additionally, certain jobs or occupations that strain the back will eventually take their toll.
In many cases, back pains go away on their own and treatment is not necessary. When pain lasts for longer than a week, however, people often need medical intervention to find relief. At Biscup Spine, all patients are treated by our founder, one of the nation’s leading spinal surgeons. Dr. Robert S. Biscup is renowned for helping patients achieve long-term relief for chronic pains through minimally-invasive treatments.
At Biscup Spine, We Treat the Cause of Back Pain, Not Just the Symptoms
Far too many medical providers are only concerned with treating the symptoms of back pain and not the underlying causes. Dr. Robert S. Biscup has been treating back pains long enough to know that addressing the symptoms only achieves short-term pain relief at best.
We have invested in state-of-the-art diagnostic technology so that we can thoroughly assess our patients’ conditions and find out what’s really causing their pain. From there, we can develop a comprehensive treatment plan focused on both symptoms and the underlying condition. We aim to get patients back on their fit and resuming an active lifestyle as quickly as possible.
