We see many patients here at Back Pain Relief Center in Vineland who have been suffering with back, neck or shoulder pain for many months, sometimes years. They have searched for solutions to help with their pain and it’s incredible that they are still suffering. We fully believe though, with the right treatment, their pain levels can reduce and they are able to live good lives again.
The biggest hurdle I see in many people is their attitudes. I don’t mean that in a mean way, but many aim to be totally pain free. While that is a fine goal to have, sometimes you do have to be realistic and understand that it may not always be possible due to the type of condition. With degeneration for example, it’s unlikely you will ever be back to normal, but absolutely I do believe you can improve your lot. So dialing down expectations and coming to some kind of acceptance is key.

However, there are patients with this painful malady who can successfully “ride it out” and repeat MRI imaging six to twelve months later often fails to show little, if any, evidence of the original herniated disk that was initially very obvious. How is this possible?
