On this episode, I along with two patients share their stories of back and leg pain after having previous back surgeries.

ABOUT DR. JOHNSON

Hi…I’m Dr. Michael Johnson. I’m a practicing physician specializing in treating spinal related problems. My professional quest for over 25 years has been to find the most effective treatments for the most painful and debilitating spine conditions.

We live, exist, and function in a gravitational environment. This takes a toll on our spine, our posture, and thus our overall health. Conditions such as degenerative disc disease, arthritis, disc herniation, spinal stenosis, previous spine surgery, and pregnancy can cause back pain, leg pain, neck pain, arm pain, and a host of other spinal related symptoms.

My goal is to connect you with a doctor who can help you.

THE BACK DOCTORS PODCAST:

The mission of The Back Doctors is to engage in meaningful exchanges with doctors from around the world who have a similar passion in treating the multitudes of individuals suffering with spine pain. I want to find hope for you. There is help out there, let’s go find it together.
