Back pain can stem from a range of causes, spanning poor posture to degenerative diseases or accidents. In some instances, these conditions may impact nerves in the back or spinal cord, leading to pain, numbness, or weakness in other areas of the body. It’s crucial not to delay seeking an appointment if you experience these symptoms.
Some common causes and risk factors for back pain include:
- Aging: Back pain becomes more prevalent around age 30-40.
- Lack of fitness: Weak back muscles and abs can inadequately support the spine.
- Weight gain: Excess weight increases stress on the back.
- Pregnancy: Changes in pelvic structure and weight distribution can strain the back.
- Genetics: Various spinal conditions can be influenced by genetics.
- Heavy lifting: Incorrectly lifting heavy objects can result in injury.
- Smoking: Tobacco use hampers blood flow and nutrient supply to the spine.
- Mental health issues: Anxiety and depression contribute to muscle tension and sensitivity.
To pinpoint the source of your back pain, we initiate a conversation about your symptoms, medical history, and limitations caused by your back pain. Subsequently, we establish treatment goals. Our experienced healthcare providers conduct a physical examination and employ advanced diagnostic tools, such as X-rays, CT scans, ultrasound, and nerve conduction studies, to identify the cause of your back pain. Once diagnosed, we collaborate with you to devise a personalized treatment plan to alleviate the pain.
