Recent studies show a drastic increase in the number of unnecessary back surgeries, despite evidence that these procedures have similar results as nonsurgical or “conservative” options but with an increased risk of side effects and complications. It is estimated that only 1% of all back pain cases will ever need surgery. Studies prove that non-invasive treatments for lumbarisation and sacralisation are very effective in managing the symptoms of this condition.
Non-Pharmacological Pain Management
Lumbarisation and sacralisation are often put under the umbrella term lumbosacral transition vertebra (LSTV). This is the most common birth defect of the lumbosacral spine. People with this condition often suffer from low back pain that can become severe if the condition is left untreated.
Most doctors prescribe strong painkillers including opioids to manage lumbarisation and sacralisation pain. However, these drugs are linked to organ damage and often result in physical dependence and addiction. C7Physio provides safe non-pharmacological methods of pain management for low back pain including Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM). FSM is a technologically-advanced method of pain management that uses a low-level electric current to promote tissue repair and eliminate lumbarisation or sacralisation back pain.
Ignoring lumbarisation or sacralisation back pain can lead to poor posture, weakened muscles, and serious back problems. Visit a spine specialist for a definite diagnosis and treatment plan.
