Identifying the source of your back pain requires a professional with experience to weigh all the variables and arrive at the exact diagnosis. Back pain can be caused by injury to the joints, ligaments, discs, or muscles. It can be acute or chronic, genetic or caused by injury. Our highly trained doctors have the experience and expertise to diagnose and treat your condition quickly and capably.
Getting to Know You
Initial visits seek to get a comprehensive snapshot of your health and spinal history.
This information will include general medical condition as well as variables that are specific to your individual lifestyle or occupation, etc.
Spinal health issues of interest include:
- the onset and progression of symptoms
- the location and severity of the pain
- what treatments you may have previously used
This background information lays the foundation for your treatment and is typically followed by a complete physical exam. After the gathering of your history, information, and physical, the doctor will often order one or more diagnostic tests to pinpoint the sources and causes of your back and neck pain.
