Back Pain Q & A

What is back pain?

Back pain is a highly common symptom that ranges from a minor inconvenience to a debilitating issue. It’s the result of many injury types and some chronic conditions, and it’s important that you get a diagnosis to find a treatment to help you manage it in the long term. 

North Texas Comprehensive Spine & Pain Center offers state-of-the-art procedures for back pain that comes from:

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Herniated discs
  • Vertebral fractures
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis

You should consider booking an appointment to address your back pain if it doesn’t improve after three days from its onset or if it’s severe and debilitating from the start. 

Your providers at North Texas Comprehensive Spine & Pain Center diagnose the pain by reviewing your medical history, performing a physical exam, and using additional tests like bloodwork, discography, or X-ray imaging. 

Am I at risk for back pain?

Back pain can affect you regardless of your age or level of fitness. However, there are risk factors that you should be aware of. Your risk for back pain is higher than average if you:

  • Are overweight or obese
  • Work at a desk job
  • Have a physical labor job
  • Are over 45
  • Are out of shape

You might also be prone to conditions that tend to cause back pain, like arthritis, because of your genetics. Your physician can talk to you about specific risks and the steps you can take to prevent back pain. 

How can I manage my back pain?

When back pain is mild to moderate, you can manage it at home without therapeutic treatment. Ice packs, over-the-counter pain relievers, and rest can make a big difference in some cases, but they’re often not enough to provide lasting relief. 

North Texas Comprehensive Spine & Pain Center builds a customized treatment plan for your back pain according to the underlying cause of the pain and your medical history. Available procedures for back pain include:

  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Radiofrequency ablation (RFA)
  • Nerve blocks
  • Spinal cord stimulation
  • Kyphoplasty (for vertebral fractures)
  • Stem cell therapy

North Texas Comprehensive Spine & Pain Center often supplements back pain procedures like these with physical therapy, medications, and behavior modification. Following your treatment plan closely ensures the quickest possible recovery from your back pain and immobility.

Back pain can be an acute or chronic issue that affects your ability to work and focus. If your back pain is severe or persistent, request an appointment with a phone call or online at North Texas Comprehensive Spine & Pain Center today.
