The Spine Surgeons Dilemma for Patients with Mechanical CLBP with Frank Schwab, Spine Surgeon
We all have it sometimes, and it goes away with a couple of simple meds or stretching, but back pain is more complex than you think!
In this episode, Dr. Frank Schwab, an internationally renowned spine surgeon, discusses treating patients suffering from chronic low back pain. When it comes to back pain, many structures are involved, so accurately diagnosing its root cause and how to treat it is very challenging. He talks about the multifidus muscle’s functions and why its failure can cause ongoing pain, limited activity, and trunk stabilization loss. He also explains how the new ReActiv8 therapy is making groundbreaking advances in back pain treatment in terms of results and cost-efficiency for patients who have struggled for years with daily chronic back pain; by targeting the multifidus muscle with pulse signals to stabilize it and allowing the other muscles around the trunk to function normally.
