Back pain is a chronic condition for most people, and one of the most difficult to diagnose and treat. Our Dallas Back Pain Specialists at the clinic have both expertise and the experience to help you find the right treatment plan and help put an end to your back pain.
Using conservative treatments, such as physical therapy, x-ray or ultrasound instructed injections, and non-narcotic medications, our Dallas doctors will relieve you you’re your suffering.
We specialize in non-surgical care for your spine. Our back pain in Dallas only perform operations when all conservative treatment methods have failed.
What is lower back pain?
Lower back pain is any pain you experience in the lower portion of your back, which begins just below your rib cage and ends in your buttocks. An estimated 80% of American adults are dealing with lower back pain at some point, and it's the leading cause of work-related disability.
From a dull, irritating ache to extreme, piercing pain, the level of pain you experience can vary. The pain can come and go in a matter of days or linger for months. Lower back pain that lasts more than three months is considered a chronic pain condition.
What causes lower back pain?
Your lower back pain can arise from a variety of causes. It more often occurs because of a mechanical problem related to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, or bones in your back. Causes of lower back pain include:
Muscle or ligament sprain or strain
Degenerative disc disease
A structural deformity in your spine, such as scoliosis, can also lead to lower back pain.
How is lower back pain diagnosed?
Our Dallas back pain doctor will diagnose lower back pain after an examination and analysis of your medical history. To help him formulate his diagnosis, it is important for you to provide as much detail as possible about the pain you are experiencing, as well as what you were doing when the pain started.
The Dallas back pain expert may also prescribe medical testing, such as an X-ray or MRI so that he can take a closer look at your spine, which can help identify the source of your pain.
What kind of treatment available in Dallas can help relieve my low back pain?
Our Dallas back pain physician is a surgeon, but we do not prescribe surgery to relieve your lower back pain, at least not right away. Our strategy would initially concentrate on less invasive treatments, such as:
Modification of your activity
Anti-inflammatory and over-the-counter pain medication
If all of these fail to provide you with the relief you need, and your lower back pain is caused by severe musculoskeletal damage or nerve compression, we can then recommend surgery. If possible, we use minimally invasive spinal surgery techniques to decrease the overall risk and help you get back to your normal activities faster.
