Dr. Mohr Treats a Variety of Conditions That Cause Lower Back Pain in Houston & Cypress, TX
Lower back pain can strike suddenly after a fall, car accident or bout of heavy lifting. More often, though, it develops gradually along with age-related spinal degeneration. Usually, chronic pain in the lumbar spine can be traced to nerve compression caused by an underlying condition related to a damaged disc, inflamed joint, misaligned vertebra or bone spur. In the Houston and Cypress, Texas, area, R. Alexander Mohr, M.D., of Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine provides a full range of conservative and surgical treatment options for conditions that cause lower back pain.
Known for being down-to-earth and approachable, Dr. Mohr meets with each patient personally to
go over his or her symptoms and imaging scans. After reaching a diagnosis, Dr. Mohr will develop a treatment plan that is in line with the patient’s needs and goals.
