Back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide and is the number one reason for visits to a doctor. Back Pain can be the result of disc degeneration, arthritis, muscle pull and strains and other causes. Before prescribing any treatment for back pain, it is vital to know what is causing it. Our talented team of providers will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine the exact reasons for your back pain and create an individualized treatment plan just for you.
What is back pain?
Back pain refers to any discomfort you experience in your back. This includes dull aches to sharp, debilitating pain. Your back pain may develop from many causes, including an acute injury or an underlying degenerative condition.
Though pain can develop in any area of your back, lower back pain is the most common.
The experienced interdisciplinary health care team at Magnolia Medical Center specializes in the management of back pain and has helped many people get the relief they need using natural, non-surgical treatments.
What symptoms does back pain cause?
Back pain symptoms vary in type and severity. Common symptoms include:
- Recurring lower back pain
- Numbness and/or tingling in the leg(s)
- Muscle weakness, difficulty lifting regular objects
- Shoulder pain
- Muscle spasms
- Foot drop, weakness in toes, or numbness in the foot
- Numbness in arms or hands
- Numbness in buttocks
- Muscle stiffness and/or tenderness
- Loss of bladder or bowel control
- Throw back out easily
If you’re experiencing these symptoms, then your back pain may come from conditions that are degenerative in nature.
These conditions don’t heal naturally without treatment and get worse over time. The longer you go without effective treatment, the greater your chance for extensive damage.
The pain management experts at Magnolia Medical Center specialize in the treatment of degenerative back conditions and provide treatments that alleviate your pain and improve spine and back health.
