What doctor do I see for back pain?
A back pain doctor is known commonly and professionally as a pain management specialist. This type of professional is an expert in helping patients mitigate and manage their pain, and improve their mobility and quality of life. For many patients, a pain management specialist is the best kind of doctor for them and their back pain, and some other patients benefit from seeing an orthopedist. If you come to our clinic to see a back pain doctor and he or she decides you should see an orthopedist too, the doctor can provide a referral.
The first step in helping a patient is for the pain management specialist to look at the patient’s medical history, chronic pain history, and current symptoms to determine the root of the pain. Many modern technologies can assist the doctor with this diagnosis. And once the doctor understands the cause of the pain, he or she will put together a comprehensive, long-term plan for pain mitigation and management.
What is the cause of chronic back pain?
In most cases, chronic back pain is age-related, but in many others, it’s a result of a prior injury. Some of the specific causes can include:
- A herniated or bulging disc, or another spinal disc issue
- Myofascial pain syndrome, which is pressure on sensitive points in muscles
- Arthritis in the spine, which is the gradual thinning of cartilage in the spine
- Spinal stenosis, which is the narrowing of the spinal canal and pinching of nerves there
Here at Absolute Integrated Health, we’re capable of diagnosing any of these conditions, then treating them directly to relieve your pain in the long term.
What services help treat back pain?
This depends on the condition causing the particular case of back pain, but once a pain management specialist understands the particular case, he or she can provide a number of services. Some of the most effective and long-lasting services we provide here at our clinic include:
- Prescriptions for pain relievers like NSAIDs or opioids, as well as muscle relaxants, and even low-dose antidepressants (for some cases of chronic back pain)
- Medication management
- Epidurals, especially cortisone injections
- Nerve blocks
- Spinal decompression
- Stem cell therapy and PRP therapy
- Chiropractic treatment
- Physical therapy
- And more
Any or many of these services can be a part of your treatment plan with us here at Absolute Integrated Health. If you’d like to get started on a treatment plan, then get in touch with us at our clinic today, and we’ll have you in for a consultation.
