Back Pain Q & A

Why is back pain so common?

When you think about the structure of the human back and the tasks this critical part of the body performs, the question really becomes why back pain isn’t even more common. Your back serves to:

  • Protect your spinal cord
  • Enable movement
  • Enhance balance
  • Absorb shock

Your back consists of 33 separate vertebral bones, each of which is cushioned by a disc of rubbery tissue called cartilage. A complex network of connective tissues, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and other tissues also support your spine. If a problem arises with any of these structures, significant pain can develop.

Back pain can result from physiological trauma, structural deformities, arthritis, disc degeneration, or infection, just to name a few common causes. You may also experience back pain any time the nerves in your back are compressed, damaged, or irritated.

When should I seek treatment for back pain?

Everyone experiences back pain at some point. Very often these episodes resolve over a brief period of time without professional treatment.

For minor back pain, a period of rest and over-the-counter pain medications may be all that’s needed to find relief. If your back pain does not improve after a few days or it’s severe in nature, you should seek prompt medical attention.

You should also see a doctor if you experience fever, chills, or difficulty controlling your bladder or bowels. These are signs of serious health issues and should be evaluated right away.

Can back pain be managed with prescription medications?

There are cases where prescription drugs are a necessary part of treating back pain. An example is the pain that you experience immediately after back surgery. However, many men and women are searching for pain management that does not rely on prescription drugs.

There is a serious opioid crisis at play in America, and far too many people become addicted to pain medications after taking them to treat a legitimate health condition. These drugs are not only highly addictive, but they can also take a toll on your body, especially over time.

Neuropathy Treatment Clinics of Texas exists to serve those who seek effective treatment for back pain that doesn’t rely on prescription medications. By offering the very latest in pain medicine technology, you can find lasting relief without the risks associated with more traditional pain management techniques.
