If your 20-year-old spirit said “GO” this weekend, but your 50-year-old back screamed “NO,” you’re not alone. Nine out of ten adults experience back pain at some point in their lives—and five out of ten adults have back pain every year. To learn more about back pain and injury and possible treatment options, watch Dr. Clark Gunderson, an orthopedic surgeon on staff at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery in My Aching Back.
A graduate of Baylor College of Medicine, Dr. Gunderson completed his internship and residency at Louisiana State University Charity Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana. He specializes in orthopedic and spinal surgery, as well as hip and knee replacements. He is also one of the two orthopedic physicians in the state to serve on the Louisiana Workforce Commission’s Back Injury Guidelines Committee.
