Back Pain Q & A

What causes back pain?

Back pain can be either acute, lasting less than six weeks, or chronic, lasting more than six months. In many cases, both types of back pain can limit what you can do physically and disrupt your mental and emotional health.

Acute back pain is often the result of minor injuries to the muscles in your spine for overuse, high-impact exercise, or poor posture. When your back pain is chronic, it may be due to age-related changes in your spine, severe injuries, or degenerative medical conditions.

Common causes of chronic back pain include:

  • Sciatica
  • Osteoporosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease

You can also experience chronic back pain because of severe injuries or deformities like scoliosis. Without treatment, many of the conditions that cause back pain can worsen over time and lead to immobility or a disability.

When should I seek treatment for back pain?

You should schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Innovation Spine Medical if you have persistent back pain that you can treat at home with over-the-counter medications. You also need an evaluation if your back pain continues worsening even with home care.

The providers offer on-site diagnostic testing services to identify the source of your back pain. They review your medical history and physically examine your spine’s flexibility and range of motion.

Based on the results of your exam and testing, they customize a treatment plan to improve the health of your spine and provide long-lasting pain relief.

How is back pain treated?

  • Acupuncture
