Physician Seminar: Weight Loss Goals

Physician Seminar: Weight Loss Goals

Austin Myers, MD

Nearly two-thirds of Americans experience lower back pain. For those who suffer from prolonged or acute back pain, the debilitating effects can be all too familiar. While some may find that rest, activity modification and perhaps some over-the-counter pain medication can help, further investigation may be necessary when pain lingers for more than four or five days.

The way we understand and subsequently work to manage pain issues have changed significantly in the last decade. In many cases, we are now finding that minimally invasive alternatives to surgery may be a better option. Diagnostic and therapeutic injections, when indicated, are considered one part of a more comprehensive treatment program.

If you or a loved one is experiencing back pain, I invite you to join me on Tuesday, Feb 19, 2019 in the Portneuf Medical Center Pebble Creek Conference Room. The seminar, “Back Pain and Non- Surgical Options,” is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 6pm; presentation will begin at 6:30. Light refreshments will be served. Registration is preferred; please call 208-239-2033 to reserve a seat or register for this community seminar at Portneuf.org/event.

I am committed to working together to reestablish quality of life, improve function, reduce medication use and find a nonsurgical approach to the treatment of back and spine disorders. To schedule an appointment, call my office at 208-239-2722.
