Clearwater Back Pain Treatment

Experienced Spine Specialists Who Can Help

Back pain (also known as dorsalgia) is pain felt in the back that usually originates from the muscles, nerves, bones, joints or other structures in the spine. The pain can often be divided into neck pain, upper back pain, lower back pain or tailbone pain. It may have a sudden onset or can be a chronic pain; it can be constant or intermittent, stay in one place or radiate to other areas. It may be a dull ache, or a sharp or piercing or burning sensation. The pain may radiate into the arm and hand), in the upper back, or in the low back, (and might radiate into the leg or foot), and may include symptoms other than pain, such as weakness, numbness or tingling.

The spine is a complex interconnecting network of nerves, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and all are capable of producing pain. Large nerves that originate in the spine and go to the legs and arms can make pain radiate to the extremities. Because the spine is so complex, finding the source of back pain can be difficult. Our experienced team of spine specialists performs structured assessments that help us determine the cause of back pain as quickly as possible.

Diagnosing Back Pain

In many cases, patients will need to undergo image testing before a doctor can diagnose the cause of their back pain. Some of the most common tests include:

  • X-ray
  • CT scan
  • MRI
  • Electromyogram (EMG)
  • Bone scanning

You will also need to provide your medical team with some information, including when the back pain started, what kind of activities you do on a regular basis that put strain on your back, what the pain feels like, if the pain radiates to other areas of the body, and whether or not any home treatments you’ve tried have helped. The more information we have, the more efficiently we can make a diagnosis, so be sure to speak up and tell us any thoughts you might have about your back pain, even if they seem trivial.

At Comprehensive Spine Institute, we start treatment using the least invasive methods. Surgery should only be considered as a last resort. We utilize a number of non-invasive treatments like bracing and physical therapy to help patients find relief. If spine surgery is required, our team is experienced in numerous minimally invasive procedures that reduce bleeding, do not require large incisions, and result in faster recovery.
