Treatment options for hand OA are limited and often not very effective in the long term.

Common cause of back pain becomes even more prevalent with age. Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a condition that occurs when the space surrounding the spinal cord narrows, which puts pressure on this area and leads to low back pain (LBP).

Physical therapy is one type of conservative (nonsurgical) treatment that is prescr...
