Back pain is one of the most common reasons a person visits a doctor. In general some form of pain medication is prescribed and in many instances physical therapy is recommended. The next step is usually a surgical or minimally invasive procedure.

But how necessary are surgical procedures and more importantly how successful are they? Do people feel better from just rest alone?

Or is there a better better alternative?

More than 465,000 spinal fusions were performed in the United States in 2011, according to government data, and some experts say that a portion of them — perhaps as many as half — were performed without good reason.

The ELDOA are group of exercises designed by Guy VOYER DO to hydrate the discs and create space in the joints of the spine.
