Back Pain Q & A

What causes back pain?

Back pain may have several causes involving problems with your muscles, spine, nerves, or connective tissues. The spine is a complex structure of nerves, muscles, bones, and ligaments that are affected by overuse, injuries, and age-related degeneration. A wide variety of health conditions also contribute to back pain, including:

  • Strained or torn muscles
  • Arthritis
  • Narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis)
  • Herniated discs
  • Osteoporosis
  • Scoliosis
  • Neuropathy 

Back pain can also be the result of having poor posture or being overweight.  

When should I see a doctor for my back pain?

Some people experience chronic back pain that never seems to go away (often caused by an accident or injury). In contrast, others experience sudden back pain with no apparent cause that can restrict their range of motion.

If you experience chronic or sudden back pain, you should make an appointment with Alternative Health & Healing Center to determine the cause and potential treatment options.

How do doctors diagnose the cause of back pain?

Your doctor will discuss your medical history, lifestyle, and symptoms to identify the root cause of your back pain. Your physician will ask you to walk around the office and demonstrate your ability, or lack thereof, to do specific stretches.

If necessary, the doctor will order diagnostic tests, such as X-rays or MRIs, to get a better look at the potential causes of back pain. Once the underlying cause is determined, your doctor can customize a treatment plan to relieve the pain.
