Treatments for back pain

Our patients present themselves at our clinics with a wide range of back issues. From Common back pain issues, to more complex back problems, the often acute pain is often difficult for the sufferer to manage. Acute pain is normally an issue that has been present less than four to six weeks. Mechanical back pain normally is the source of pain from the spinal joints, discs, vertebrae or soft tissues. There is also acute mechanical back pain which is also called acute low back pain, lumbago, idiopathic low back pain, lumbosacral strain or sprain, or lumbar syndrome.

What causes low/mechanical back pain?

Diagnosing the precise cause of your type low/mechanical back pain is vitally important, especially if it is a specific trauma to the back or strenuous activity is the cause of the pain. It implies the source of the back pain is in the spine and/or its supporting structure. The surrounding muscles and ligaments may become inflamed and irritated.

What are the symptoms of low/mechanical back pain?

Most people experience pain primarily in the lower back. The problem you may have may be originating from a difference source to where the pain may spread to (radiate). From buttocks, to the thighs or knees, a lot of these ailments can be sourced to back pain.

You may also be experiencing spasms with mechanical back pain. The symptoms of low/mechanical back pain are generally more noticeable with flexion of the back and when lifting heavy objects.

One other type of back related pain is sciatica. This is usually caused by a pinched nerve, when a protruding disc is putting pressure on a spinal nerve. With sciatica, the pain frequently extends below the level of the knee.

How is back pain diagnosed?

We take time to carefully diagnose and evaluate your medical history. Then we will conduct a physical examination to determine if you have a treatable back pain issue.

With our wide range of treatments, we work with you to create an appropriate treatment plan for dealing with your back pain.

If your symptoms or examination reveal the remote possibility of an infection, malignancy or a pinched nerve, additional tests may be necessary before treatment can commence.
