How long should back pain last? When should someone see a doctor about back pain?
Most mild cases of back pain should last no more than 6 weeks. However, there are some cases that will last longer than that, and this is when back pain becomes chronic pain. So if your body hasn’t healed itself fully after 6 weeks, this is chronic pain that should be treated by a doctor. You should also see a doctor if your back pain is severe, or if:
- The pain was caused by a trauma
- The pain is accompanied by foot drop, unexplained weight loss, a fever, loss of bowel or bladder function, numbness, and/or tingling
- You also have a history of cancer, a suppressed immune system, osteoporosis, or chronic steroid use
- You also have night pain that wakes or keeps you up
- You are over the age of 70
- You use IV drugs
The specific type of doctor you’ll want to see is a pain management specialist, which is a very qualified doctor for back pain. The specialist might also recommend that you see an orthopedist, and can provide a referral if necessary.
How is back pain diagnosed? How is back pain treated?
Typically, a back pain doctor will examine the patient’s back and access his or her ability to sit, stand, walk, and lift the legs. The doctor will also look at the patient’s medical history, history of chronic pain, current symptoms, and current functionality. Additionally, the doctor might order an X-ray, MRI, CT scan, blood test, bone scan, or nerve study. You can have confidence that the doctor will take every necessary step in order to properly diagnose the condition causing your back pain, and once the doctor knows your condition, he or she can treat it directly, as opposed to simply treating the pain and other symptoms.
With Absolute Integrated Health, you’ll have access to the services of a fully capable back pain doctor and pain management specialist. He or she will likely recommend one or more of the following treatments or services for your particular condition and back pain:
- Prescription pain relievers like NSAIDs or opioids, as well as muscle relaxants, and possibly low-dose antidepressants, which can help with some cases of chronic pain
- Medication management
- PRP therapy
- Stem cell therapy
- Chiropractic treatment
- Physical therapy
- Epidurals, (cortisone injections in particular)
- Nerve blocks
- Spinal decompression
- And other solutions
