Nearly all of us experience back pain at some point in our lives. Persistent or chronic lower or upper back difficulties on the other hand, can become a very unwelcome part of our lives. Common causes of back problems include aging, muscular or spinal degeneration, and injury to muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, sacroiliac joints, bursa, nerve roots and the tailbone. The discs in your back can become affected by herniations, protrusions or extrusions.
Many people suffering in their upper or lower back don't have a clear diagnosis for their pain. But, you need a proper diagnosis so you can get the treatment you need. We take pride in our ability to consistently and accurately diagnose back problems for our patients. Sometimes it really isn't a back problem even though it feels like it is. Other anatomic structures such as the hip joints are often confused for lower back discomfort. Our diagnostics can rule this out as a cause. The problem may also be caused by sciatica.
We have multiple diagnostic procedures at our disposal: MRI scans, x-rays, nerve conduction studies, CT scans, myelograms and diagnostic injections. If you live in the OKC area (Oklahoma City) and are in need of an experienced pain treatment doctor, give us a call today at 405-451-4049. We can accurately diagnose the issues you are experiencing and establish the best treatment plan to help get rid of, or at the very least, manage your back pain effectively.
Are you experiencing chronic or persistent neck pain? We can help! Zygapophysial, or facet joints, have been identified as the primary source of chronic neck pain in up to 67% of sufferers. (source: International Association for the Study of Pain). These facet joints have ample nerve supply with pain receptors causing sharp and dull constant pains in the neck, shoulders, base of the skull, and upper arms.
The facet joints can cause significant neck pain on the right side, left side, or in the middle. They can also cause headache, shoulder pain and other upper extremity discomfort. Causes of neck issues include trauma, degeneration, dislocation, tumor, fracture or even infection. The discs, nerve roots, bones, soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, bursa and ligaments can also cause notable neck discomfort.
Your treatment plan is based on our many years of experience diagnosing neck pain with such tools as x-rays, MRI scans, CT scans and nerve conduction studies. Treatment methods include NSAIDs, antidepressant medications, anticonvulsants, opiates, physical therapy, and chiropractic care. Other important treatment options can include stretching, being fitted with and wearing a neck brace, gravity inversion, manipulation therapy, and injection therapy. If those treatment options do not work as expected, the last resort to be considered is spinal surgery.
