Back Pain Q & A
Most human beings suffer from back pain at least once in their lives. In minor cases, back pain may be a sign of a temporary muscle injury. But in advanced cases of back pain, a serious neurological or bone-related medical condition may be to blame. Some of the most common causes of back pain include:
- Disc injury
- Muscle strain
- Ligament sprain
- Nerve compression
- Bone disease, such as osteoporosis
Back pain can stem from sudden trauma, such as a car accident, or because of lifestyle factors, such as being overweight or having a sedentary lifestyle. In any case, back pain is never something you should ignore.
Premier Neurology treats simple and complicated cases of back pain. It’s important to come into the clinic for an evaluation if you experience any of the following issues for more than a week:
- Stabbing pains
- Neck or back stiffness
- Shooting or stabbing pains
- Pain that worsens with activity
- Pain that travels, such as shooting pains down your legs
You should come into Premier Neurology as soon as possible if your back pain begins after trauma, such as an automobile accident.
When you come to Premier Neurology for your back pain evaluation, you undergo comprehensive diagnostic testing to pinpoint the cause. Your doctor may recommend X-rays, nerve conduction studies (such as an electromyography), lab tests, or other types of screening.
After diagnosing the cause of your back pain, your doctor talks with you about treatment options, which might include:
- Vagus nerve stimulation
- Topical pain relievers
- Cortisone injections
- Muscle relaxants
- Pain medications
- Nerve blocks
