This page was last updated on April 8th, 2024

Outcome After Surgery

  • Good outcome expected: Outcome is largely dependent on patient selection. In children, resolution of radicular pain has been reported as high as 91% (35).

Outcome After Nonsurgical Treatments

  • Good outcome expected with DDD: Most patients with LBP have resolution of their initial onset within a week. Proper pain management can significantly help the majority of patients, including a good regiment of rest, NSAIDs, muscle relaxants, heat/ice, and physical therapy.
