Back Pain Treatment & Relief
Performed by award winning doctors
Back pain may be aggravated with movement, or may radiate into the upper or lower extremities. Patients may also have limited range of motion and/or tenderness upon touch. There are certain red flags that indicate a more serious condition and may require emergency evaluation or surgery, including weakness, numbness or tingling, fever, weight loss or problems with bowel and/or bladder control. Generally back pain can be attributed to mechanical causes, most of which are relatively benign, although a small number of cases are due to more serious illness.
Back Pain Causes
- Degeneration (e.g. osteoporosis)
- Muscle strain
- Mechanical problems (e.g. a herniated disc)
- Vertebral fractures associated with osteoporosis
- Rare, more serious causes include cancer, infection, vascular problems and damage to nervous tissues
Treatments for back pain are generally non-to minimally invasive and are conservative in nature.
