Recurring Back Pain
Chronic back pain can have many causes and can manifest in either the upper, middle or lower back. Back pain is usually associated with arthritis, nerve and/or muscular conditions or degenerating discs and may have be the result of a genetic propensity or earlier injury. Dr. Leonel Hunt uses cutting-edge diagnostic tools and advanced investigatory procedures to determine the cause of the back pain, so it can be targeted with surgical procedures to handle the underlying causes and ideally completely handle or significantly reduce the pain and halt further degeneration.
