When I began dealing with severe back pain, I knew that I wanted to figure out what was going on in order to get to the bottom of it. My back was in so much pain that I was not even fully functional on most days, and I found myself lying in bed barely able to move. This was a serious problem, as I was missing a lot of work due to the pain that I was going through. I had finally had enough, and I decided to look for South Florida Orthopedics in order to figure out what was going on with me. There were quite a few doctors in the area with this specialty, and so I wanted to find the one that was closest to me but was also fully qualified to help me with my back pain.
After running a couple of internet searches, I found a local orthopedic physician right down the road from me. My major concern was that they were going to end up having to perform some sort of surgery, and that was something that I wanted to avoid at all costs if possible. I was very nervous upon my first visit, but the doctor was very patient with me and helped to keep my mind at ease. After taking some x-rays and examining them closely, he told me that I did not need any sort of surgery, but that I was having muscle spasms in my back, and he prescribed me muscle relaxants.
I am still dealing with the pain, but taking the muscle relaxants has helped me to cope with it, and I have been able to go back to work. I am glad that I did not need surgery and that I am no longer losing out on income.
