Back Pain Q & A

 

What is back pain?

For many, back pain is acute and resolves over time with medical care. However, some people develop chronic back pain that doesn’t get better and affects their day-to-day life.

The Therapeutic Rehab Specialists team is skilled at treating back pain and offering innovative physical therapy options to provide long-term relief from your pain.

What causes back pain?

You can develop back pain from many causes. Though, in most cases, the root cause of your pain is due to a mechanical problem with one or more of the components that make up your back.

Common causes of back pain include:

  • Strain or sprain
  • Trauma
  • Herniated disc
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Arthritis
  • Spinal deformity
  • Pinched nerve
  • Spinal radiculopathy
  • Sciatica

The team at Therapeutic Rehab Specialists will help you resolve pain that stems from various causes.

What happens during a back pain evaluation?

The team at Therapeutic Rehab Specialists works to address your pain and develop the best treatment plan.

During your evaluation, they ask detailed questions about your symptoms, including the type of pain you experience, when it started, and the activities that worsen or improve your pain.

In some cases, the team may order diagnostic images like X-rays, MRI, or CT scans.

How is back pain treated?

Treatment for back pain depends on the underlying cause, severity of symptoms, and medical history. Your treatment course may include:

  • Activity modification
  • Pain or anti-inflammatory medication
  • Spinal injections
  • Physical therapy
  • Supportive braces

The team emphasizes a conservative approach in rehabilitation focused on various physical therapy techniques. The goal is to prevent and treat ongoing musculoskeletal problems and prevent them from recurring.

Your therapy may address headaches or other issues that are worsened by your back pain. Rather than merely treating the surface-level symptoms, the team takes a holistic approach to improve overall wellness.
