Tiger Woods and Back Surgery...

You may have heard that Tiger is back. He is going to be playing in a tournament at the Congressional Country Club, in Bethesda Maryland.  I actually thought he was nurturing a wounded knee.  Apparently he had back surgery.  He's had four surgeries on his left knee but this was a microdiscectomy (or microdecompression) in the low back.

What is a Microdiscectomy? That's where they shave off part of the disc that's causing pressure to the nerve.  This may be why you heard he had a pinched nerve.

With the best doctors and rehab, Tiger will be back for the next major PGA tournament. The scary thing is however the fact that you can have the best doctor but that doesn't mean a future free and clear of back pain.

Talk to the doctors at CT Spine & Disc Center to learn about a non-surgical approach to low back pain and/or disk pain.
