Back pain is among the most frequent complaints that send patients to see a doctor. About 65 million American adults complain of back pain; around 8% of that number suffer chronic back pain, or persistent pain that doesn’t go away with rest or at-home treatments.
At Battle Born Brain and Spine in Reno, Nevada, Dr. Sina Rajamand knows how chronic back pain can severely limit your day-to-day activities and lifestyle. And, he also knows that it will only grow worse without some form of professional treatment.
Common Causes of Chronic Back Pain
Most back pain is caused by stress, poor posture, injuries, repeated actions that promote wear-and-tear and degenerative conditions. These injuries or conditions make it difficult, if not impossible, to perform normal tasks or even walk correctly. Some of the common spinal issues that result from the above can include:
- Compressed nerves
- Ruptured discs
- Cracked or broken vertebrae
- Bone spurs
- Spinal stenosis
Dr. Sina Rajamand is a seasoned and talented neurosurgeon who specializes in minimally-invasive treatments for back pain.

Back pain treatment must be tailored to the specific cause, as there are many potential causes of back pain. Dr. Rajamand can perform a detailed examination and use advanced imaging to discern the root cause of your pain; only then will he recommend a plan for back pain treatment. Very often, chronic back pain that resists conservative treatments will require neurosurgery.

These advanced techniques use state-of-the-art technology that allows Dr. Rajamand to view and work within the surgical space with the aid of cameras and tiny tools.
