Helping to Relieve Your Lingering Back Pain

The American Academy of Neurological Surgeons estimates that 75 to 85 percent of Americans will experience some form of back pain during their lifetime.

Although 90 percent of this pain is temporary and can be treated with rest and over-the-counter medications, some back pain can persist. Back pain lasting longer than 12 weeks is considered chronic and requires specialized treatment.

Back pain can present in multiple ways; as localized stiffness, soreness, aching, or shooting pains down your legs, all due to varied triggers. The conditions listed below are among the most common.

  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Loss of disc space
  • Arthritis
  • Sciatic nerve irritation
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Fractures

Some of the conditions above require surgical intervention, but many can be treated more conservatively. Whether you need surgery or not, our expert physicians and staff can help ease your discomfort with the help of treatment options such as injections and physical therapy referrals, as well as conservative and sparing medication management.
