Many people suffer from debilitating back pain, especially athletes. Some are unable to live full, productive lives due to the pain they suffer from. Some are even unable to continue with the sports they love due to back injury. Back surgery may fix some of these issues however back surgery is also invasive and can cause more problems with the patient. Even procedures that are considered to be minimally invasive can leave the patient with damaged tissue, have healthy tissue removed, or even leave the patient in worse condition. Now, thanks to a procedure done by North American Spine, patients may be able to receive the surgery they need without the high risk.

North American Spine is a Dallas-based company that specializes in a procedure called AccuraScope. The procedure is minimally invasive, has minimal risk to the patient, minimal scarring, and quick patient recovery times. AccuraScope works to treat conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, bulging discs, arthritis, scar tissue, sciatica, annular tears, and more. North American Spine has performed the procedure successfully on over 8,000 patients. AccuraScope has a success rate of 82% and can be done in as little as 45 minutes for an outpatient procedure.

The treatment that North American Spine provides through the AccuraScope is innovative. Many patients who have been through the procedure are seeing positive changes in their lifestyles. One patient, James Phillips, had always dreamed of riding a bull. However, James also has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

The procedure can provide long-term relief to patients which can allow them to get back to their lives. For some patients, such as athletes, that could even allow them to continue with their careers or be able to pursue their passions.
