The Burden Of Back Pain

As a young man Mr. L. (32) lived a relatively normal life. Unfortunately, as with many things in life, health is not always easy to control. This was true for Mr. L. when his back began to cause him considerable worry.

From a young age he suffered from lower back pain, and at the age of 21 was diagnosed to be suffering from disc protrusion. This was treated with a Micro-discectomy surgery.

 

This was a minimally invasive procedure performed to relieve the pressure on the effected compressed nerve by removing the matter causing the pain. The surgery was successful and Mr. L.'s pain dissipated quickly, and he remained symptom-free for 10 years. However, following a game of basketball, he suffered a significant recurrence of his sciatic pain, which had returned with a vengeance.

 

His symptoms were intense and included numbness affecting his lower back, spreading down into his right leg and foot. Relief was only achieved when standing or lying down flat on his back.

 

He sought medical assistance. His doctor arranged for an MRI, which revealed a degenerative disc disease, with significant pathological findings. He was recommended treatment starting off with NSAID's (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) in conjunction with physiotherapy and was warned that if the pain persists, he may need to undergo an additional surgery. However, after attending multiple sessions of physiotherapy Mr. L. didn't experience much relief.

 

With the fear of uncertainty looming and the inability to move forward Mr. L. reached out and contacted Medix in the hope of finding an effective and sustainable treatment strategy to his condition. With his consent, Medix obtained all of his clinical records including imaging and sent them to a leading Spinal Surgeon for review.

 

The consulting specialist confirmed evidence of a degenerative disc condition, without evidence of nerve compression. The specialist recommended that Mr. L. continue with physiotherapy and in addition receive a tailored regime of epidural spinal injections, which often lead to significant pain relief and long-term improvement.

 

The injections caused a significant decrease in pain, which allowed Mr. L. to persist with physiotherapy, strengthening his core muscles which support the spine.

 

Mr. L.'s state has drastically improved as he is responding well to treatment and has regained mobility. Medix advocated regular check-ups to monitor the condition of his spine in order to keep him moving forward with his life, free from pain. Mr. L was very grateful for Medix’ personalised support and guidance throughout his medical journey.
