About the Book
This Non-Operative Treatment of the Lumbar Spine is edited by Grant Cooper. This First Edition is bridging the gap between the medical literature and the practice of lumbar spine medicine, this user friendly, accessible text describes the causes of lower back pain and associated “sciatic” pathologies and how these problems can be successfully treated without surgery.

Chapters on epidural steroid injections, exercises for lower back pain and alternative treatments follow, as well as when it is appropriate to recommend surgery. The second section of the book is devoted to numerous clinical scenarios in which evidence based medicine is applied to actual clinical cases. Non-Operative Treatment of the Lumbar Spine will be a valuable reference for orthopedists, rheumatologists, physiatrists, pain management specialists, neurologists, and anyone treating patients with lower back pain.
