Back pain is a very common ailment. Many people experience occasional aches and pains which tend to pass after a day or two. However, when the pain persists for days or weeks or becomes so intense that it begins to interfere with your day-to-day activities, special attention is required. If you have been experiencing long-lasting or prohibitive back pain, it’s time to seek out the help of a medical specialist. Pain Control Associates, LLC offers a wide range of treatment possibilities to help you recover as quickly as possible.
One reason that back pain is so common is that there are a large number of different factors that can cause back pain. Lifting a heavy object with your back muscles instead of your knees, leaning over your computer for long periods, or hurting yourself at work can all contribute to chronic or intense back pain.
Back pain is generally classified by the area affected. For example, pain in the muscles and bones of the spine is known as musculoskeletal pain. This can be caused by traumatic sports injuries, or by chronic conditions like fibromyalgia. Skeletal pain is inflammation around the spine caused by an infection, spinal fractures, or tumors. There are many other causes for back pain; we’ve seen them all at Pain Control Associates, LLC and we can offer you options for treatment.
Like their causes, there are plenty of different types of back pain. Some of the most common are:
Though these are some of the most common types of back pain, there are many others. At Pain Control Associates, LLC we realize that everyone’s body is different; this often requires an individualized plan specific to the patients’ conditions and comfort.
Before we start any procedures or treatments, we run a full diagnosis exam of all our patients. The exam helps us develop a thorough understanding of the symptoms and conditions we will need to treat. Then, depending on our patient’s preference and the most effective and efficient methods, we will begin our treatments. These often include a mix of physical therapy, medications (including spinal interventions) and holistic practices.
