MU Neurosurgeon Offers Free Seminar For Low Back Pain
COLUMBIA, Mo. — Dennis Mollman, M.D., a neurosurgeon at University of Missouri Health Care, will present information about low back pain from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 16, during a free luncheon seminar at the Peachtree Catering & Banquet Center, 120 E. Nifong Boulevard in Columbia.
According to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics, pain affects millions of Americans, with one in 10 adults experiencing symptoms that last a year or more. And topping the list of complaints is low back pain.
“Nearly everyone has low back pain at some point in their lives that can interfere with work and daily activities,” said Mollman. “Some occurrences go away within a few days, but other symptoms can become chronic. And low back pain that never seems to completely go away is often progressive. It is important to understand what symptoms mean and to find the best treatment option.”
Mollman’s presentation will include information on the causes of low back pain, the latest advances in surgical back pain treatment and non-surgical methods for relieving low back pain.
The seminar will include lunch and is free and open to the public. Registration is required. To register for the seminar, please call (573) 882-4908.
