Your back is a complex structure of highly sensitive nerves, small joints and discs, as well as tendons, muscles and tissue. A problem with any one of these components can cause back pain. Most people have back pain at some point in their lives. Fortunately, the majority of people improve without surgical intervention.
Because of the complexity of the human back, treatment may require specially trained experts in sports medicine, neuroscience or orthopedics. Doctors at Memorial Hospital Los Banos can refer you to a vast network of Sutter Health network experts offering surgical and other types of care for a wide range of back and spine problems, from degenerative discs and scoliosis to osteoporosis and spinal stenosis.
Back and spine experts across the Sutter Health network provide advanced diagnostic and evaluation services in order to create the most effective treatment plan for you. Options for care can include therapeutic, non-surgical care, minimally invasive procedures or spinal surgery if less invasive treatments haven’t helped resolve your back pain.
