What causes back pain?
It’s estimated that 80% of adults in the United States experience back pain at some point in their life, and it’s one of the leading causes of job-related disability.
Some of the most common causes of back pain are:
- Muscle strains
- Nerve compression
- Herniated spinal disc
- Skeletal irregularities such as scoliosis
- Narrowing of your spinal column referred to as spondylosis
Muscle sprains and strains are the most common cause of acute back pain, which is pain that lasts for only a few weeks. If your back pain lingers, you may have something more serious going on that requires further intervention.
How is back pain diagnosed?
To identify the source of your back pain, your Pain Medicine Group physician conducts a thorough examination that includes a physical and, in some cases, additional tests such as:
- X-rays, an MRI, or a CT scan
- Electrodiagnostic studies to test your nerve signals
- Bone scan
- Blood work
During your examination, your physician also asks about the onset of your symptoms and any related injuries.
How is back pain managed?
The experts at Pain Medicine Group offer a number of conservative and interventional treatments for managing back pain, including physical therapy, traction, and transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation (TENS), which sends low-level electric shock waves to the site of your pain to reduce discomfort.
If you don’t find relief from conservative measures, your pain management specialist may recommend injections that reduce pain or inflammation, such as a lumbar selective nerve root block or a sacroiliac (SI) joint injection.
For most patients, the Pain Medicine Group team use a combination of conservative and interventional treatments to manage back pain.
What can I do to prevent back pain?
If you suffer from recurrent back pain, the team at Pain Medicine Group may recommend steps to protect your back and prevent pain. This may include working with a physical therapist to improve your posture or strengthen your core muscles for better back support.
