Do You Have Back Pain?
Low back or lumbar pain is the second most common reason that patients visit the doctor, only behind the common cold. As with many conditions of the spine, the pain can be significant. Common causes are a bad disc irritating a nerve, joint inflammation, arthritis, or muscle strain. Non-surgical treatment options include, but are not limited to, trigger point injections, epidurals, selective nerve blocks, facet injections, sacroiliac joint injections, intradiscal steroid injections, spinal cord stimulators, and physical therapy. Another type of back pain occurs in the middle of the back. Pain in the middle of the back is often due to muscle strain. However, in some patients, the symptoms may be related to a disc or joint. If a nerve in the mid back region becomes irritated, it can cause significant pain. Some individuals will describe radiation of the pain into the side of the chest and occasionally into the front chest wall. Some patients will have pain in the mid back referred from the neck or lower back regions. If you have either of these types of back pain, Dr. Alexander, the Charleston back doctor, is the right doctor to treat you.
