Back Pain Q & A
What is back pain?
Back pain is a highly common symptom that many people get temporarily due to long periods of sitting, standing, or lying in an awkward position. If your back pain sticks around past any efforts at home relief, it may be a chronic problem that requires professional care.
The team at Elite Spine and Health Center specializes in back pain management using evidence-based therapies and chiropractic care. Back pain can originate in any of the numerous structures within the back, and getting an accurate diagnosis is imperative to finding relief that lasts.
If you have back pain that is lingering, recurrent, or particularly intense, it’s time to consider consulting with the team at Elite Spine and Health Center for treatments that work.
Back pain can easily become debilitating and can consume all of your time and energy, but treatment is often simpler than you might expect.
Where does back pain come from?
There are numerous types of back pain, and they can originate in the spine, the nerves exiting the spine, or any of the musculoskeletal structures supporting the spine. It can come from degenerative processes that happen as you age, or it can set in suddenly with an acute injury.
The team at Elite Spine and Health Center uses physical exams, imaging tests, and other approaches to diagnose common causes of back pain, like:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated discs
- Vertebral fractures
- Sprains and strains
- Spinal stenosis
Back pain can occur anywhere along the spine, but it most often starts in the cervical or lumbar sections. It can also cause referred pain if it involves nerve compression, which is pain that arises in areas other than the pain’s area of origin.
