Common Causes of Back Pain

Living with back pain can be unbearable and severely limiting, impacting your ability to go to work, engage in the physical activities that you love, or even sleep comfortably. When you choose our Northwest Indiana back pain doctors at Pain Control Associates, LLC, the first thing that we’ll do is learn more about the cause of your back pain, which may provide clues about which treatment option will be most effective. Common causes of back pain include — 

  • Acute injuries. Being involved in a car accident, suffering a slip and fall, or suffering another type of accident and injury can cause back pain. Back pain from an acute accident could be from a soft tissue injury, such as whiplash, or from a vertebrae fracture or another serious injury type.
  • Repetitive stress/ repetitive motion injuries. While back pain may certainly result from acute accidents, it can also develop due to repetitive stress or repetitive motion injuries. For example, sitting for long periods of time day after day may lead to back pain. Or, lifting heavy items, especially with improper form, can lead to back pain.
  • Medical conditions. Sometimes, back pain is the result of a medical condition rather than an acute or repetitive motion injury. For example, arthritis or osteoarthritis can manifest in a backache. 

Treatment Options for Chronic Back Pain

At Pain Control Associates, LLC, we believe in the holistic treatment of pain that prioritizes patient well-being. Rather than just scheduling you for surgery, our approach is that the least invasive options should be explored before the most invasive options. Treatment options might include lifestyle changes, including dietary changes and exercise; physical therapy and rehabilitation; the use of over-the-counter or prescription pain control medications; epidural injections; electrical stimulation; and other holistic and alternative treatments, such as massage.
