Back Pain Q & A

What causes back pain?

Back pain can be a side effect of many underlying medical issues. While many people experience occasional pain in their back from time to time, chronic back pain can limit what you can do and even result in a permanent disability.

Common causes of back pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Muscle strains
  • Herniated discs
  • Nerve compression
  • Degenerative disc disease

You can also develop chronic back pain from a traumatic injury to your spine from auto accidents or falls.

When should I seek treatment for back pain?

Acute back pain typically comes on suddenly after an accidental injury and can last from a few days to a few weeks. To be diagnosed with chronic back pain, pain must last for 12 weeks or longer.

When your back pain isn’t relieved with rest and over-the-counter medications, you should seek an evaluation at Pansuriya Clinical Corporation. You should also schedule an appointment if your back pain is severe enough to interfere with your ability to work or stay physically active.

How is back pain diagnosed?

The medical team at Pansuriya Clinical Corporation is highly skilled in diagnosing the root cause of back pain. They offer on-site X-rays and lab testing to get you the answers you need as soon as possible.

In addition to diagnostic testing, the Pansuriya Clinical Corporation team spends time with you to learn more about your medical history, the severity of your pain, and the factors that may contribute to your pain.

How is back pain treated?

Your treatment plan for back pain depends on the location of your pain and its root cause. Initially, your Pansuriya Clinical Corporation provider may recommend over-the-counter or prescription medications to relieve pain and control inflammation.

If you have chronic back pain from arthritis or spinal degeneration, you may need medication therapy combined with physical therapy. Therapeutic exercises can strengthen the muscles that support your back and increase your overall range of motion.

In situations where chronic back pain is the result of a herniated disc or damage to your spine, you may need a referral for surgery. Your Pansuriya Clinical Corporation provider can coordinate your care with a specialist and help with post-surgery pain management.

You don’t have to be limited by chronic back pain. Schedule a diagnostic evaluation today by calling Pansuriya Clinical Corporation or by requesting a consultation online now.
