Doctor Advice Health Center: Answers to Questions on Back Pain, Chronic Pain, and Back Surgery

Doctor Advice Health Center

Patients frequently e-mail Spine-health questions about back pain, neck pain, back surgery, and other pain topics. While Spine-health does not provide individual responses, contributing doctors will respond to the themes from more frequently asked questions. This Doctor Advice section publishes those responses. Choose a category below to find an archive of questions answered by doctors.



In Spine-health’s Doctor Advice section, physicians respond to frequently asked questions about back pain issues. These responses represent the opinion of one physician, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the broader medical community. The advice presented has not been peer reviewed by Spine-health’s medical advisory board.
