More than eighty percent of adults suffer from acute or chronic pain in the lumbar region (lower back) at some point in their lives. Lower back pains Philadelphia residents often report to their physicians are typically a result of a condition that can be treated by one of several different procedures, both surgical and non-surgical. The sources of this pain in the lower back include a variety of disorders, deformities, bone diseases, and injuries to the vertebrae (the bones in the spinal column). These bones, especially in the lumbar region, have the crucial responsibility of supporting body weight, so it is often the case that an issue with these vertebrae is the source of lower back pains Philadelphia orthopedic patients report to their physicians.
