Back pain is a common condition with various causes.
Some infections can also cause back pain, such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or shingles.
Back pain can manifest in different ways, depending on the cause. Some common signs include:
In many cases, acute back pain gets better with rest and self-care. If you have symptoms that aren’t improving, pain that’s accompanied by a fever, or you can’t move your body normally, it’s best to seek medical attention right away.
At Integrative Medical Center, the goal of pain management is to minimize the dependence on drugs or the application of invasive methods. Traditional pain relief strategies can provide short-term relief, but they aren’t practical for long-term healing and dependence on pain medication is a severe problem for many people.
Your treatment plan might include a variety of different methods that target inflammation, support the body’s healing process, and improve movement and flexibility. Common modalities Integrative Medical Center uses include:
Using a combination of approaches, your physician can help you achieve maximum results with minimal side effects.
It’s possible to experience immediate relief from acute pain with techniques such as acupuncture or massage. The best approach for chronic pain generally involves a long-term treatment plan, education, and lifestyle modifications to help you achieve your goals.
Dr. Li or Dr. Chen will follow up and modify your treatment plan as appropriate, guiding you each step of the way to make sure you don’t relapse into pain.
