Back Pain Q & A

What causes back pain?

Nearly everyone experiences back pain at some point. Persistent or chronic lower or upper back difficulties, on the other hand, can become a very unwelcome part of life. 

Common causes of back problems include:

  • Aging
  • Muscular or spinal degeneration
  • Muscle injuries
  • Tendon injuries
  • Ligament injuries
  • Joint injuries
  • Bursa injuries
  • Nerve root injuries
  • Tailbone injuries
  • Sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction
  • Facet joint disease
  • Disc herniation
  • Disc protrusion
  • Disc extrusion

Back pain may have other causes too. Randall Pain Management offers comprehensive care for back pain, so you don’t have to worry or feel stressed. With a holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment, you can overcome pain or, at the very least, manage your back pain effectively.


How is the source of back pain diagnosed?

Many people suffering in their upper or lower back don't have a precise diagnosis for their pain. A proper diagnosis is needed to ensure you get the treatment you need. 

Randall Pain Management takes pride in their ability to consistently and accurately diagnose back problems. The practice uses the holistic approach and considers you as a whole person, and this helps detect underlying sources of back pain that might sometimes be surprising.

Sometimes it isn't a back problem at all, even though it feels like it. Other anatomic structures, such as the hip joints, are often confused for lower back discomfort. Some common diagnostic tests for back pain include:

  • X-rays
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Nerve conduction studies
  • Myelograms
  • Diagnostic injections

Diagnostics will accurately determine the cause of your back pain so you can start a personalized recovery plan right away. 


What can I expect from back pain treatment?

Randall Pain Management treats each patient with compassion, respect, and dignity. They involve you in your pain management decisions, help you understand the treatments available, and support your recovery from beginning to end. 

In most cases, noninvasive and minimally invasive treatment approaches can provide a path to eliminating your pain or at least managing your pain effectively so you can get back to your life. 

Treatment often includes physical therapy, injections, procedures like radiofrequency ablation, precision medicine, or other options that ease your pain. Every treatment plan is unique, and the practice is happy to help you find the one that works for you.
