Back Pain Q&A

What is back pain?

Back pain can occur in your upper, middle, and lower back due to injuries, conditions, or any other activity. 

For many, the pain is acute and resolves on its own with at-home care. However, back pain can turn into a chronic pain condition due to the degenerative changes that naturally occur in your spine as you grow older. 

What are the common causes of back pain?

You can develop back pain from many causes. However, most pain develops due to a mechanical problem related to the structures in your back, such as your muscles, spine, discs, nerves, ligaments, or tendons. 

Some of the most common causes of back pain the team at Interventional Spine Medicine have successfully treated includes:

  • Herniated or slipped discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Trauma
  • Sports injuries
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Pinched nerves

The team specializes in the treatment of sciatica, which is a painful condition that develops when your sciatic nerve is irritated or pinched as it exits your spinal canal. 

Sciatica causes various pain symptoms (aching, burning, tingling) that usually only affect one side of your lower body, specifically your leg. 

What can I expect during a back pain evaluation?

You can expect a comprehensive evaluation from the team at Interventional Spine Medicine when you come in looking for relief from lower back pain. The team works together to identify the root cause of your symptoms so they can ensure you get the most effective treatment plan.
