Whether your back pain is the result of a chronic condition or accident, or it has manifested because of poor lumbar support at your work desk, we can help you find the right solution for your body, so you can enjoy a healthy life without back pain.
How is back pain diagnosed?
The most important aspect of your back pain diagnosis will be your consultation with your back pain doctor. Our pain specialists have extensive experience working with patients who struggle with back pain and can often understand the cause of your back pain issues just by discussing your symptoms and onset with you. In some cases, especially if an anatomic anomaly is suspected as the root cause, digital imaging may be necessary to confirm a diagnosis. In this case, x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs may be used depending on your needs. Obtaining a precise diagnosis is the first step toward finding the right treatment for your body, so you can effectively target the source of your back pain and work toward recovery. By speaking with an experienced and compassionate back pain doctor, you will lay the groundwork for effective treatment that will improve your quality of life.
What is causing my back pain?
Back pain can be the result of acute injuries, natural aging, or repetitive stress. Acute injuries could be the result of automobile or sports accidents, while repetitive stress injuries result from wear and tear because of the way we use our bodies on a regular basis. Weak muscles, poor posture or spinal alignment, and physical labor can put continuous strain on your back that will eventually manifest as back pain. For some people, this can make it seem like their back pain has developed quickly and for no reason, when the reality is that their spine has been compromised for months or years previously.
