Midland Park, New Jersey (June 12, 2014) – Back pain is as prevalent as it is disabling, with about 6.8% of the country’s adult population nursing an aching back at any given moment. However, Dr. Ali Maz, a Bergen County back pain expert, says that when it comes to acute lower back pain, surgery may not always be the best option.
According to him, there are certain studies that caution against this route, finding that many people who’ve had surgery experience a recurrence of pain just a year or two after the procedure. In some cases, the operation does not relieve the ache at all. In his opinion, a non-invasive approach is often the better alternative when treating lower back pain.
Dr. Maz adds that in most of his back pain patients, he discovers a miscommunication between the brain and the brain stem. In particular, the cerebellum, which controls the spinal postural muscles, “misfires” or fails to send signals properly to the back muscles. When this happens, one side of the postural muscles spasm constantly, causing imbalances in the spinal bones, which ultimately lead to chronic back pain.
At Dr. Maz’s practice—the MedWell Spine, OsteoArthritis & Neuropathy Center—patients undergo careful structural, neurological, and metabolic evaluations to find out which parts of the brain are misfiring. Then, hands-on physical therapy, supervised exercise, and nutrition counseling are employed to fix the disconnect and relieve clients of chronic pain.
