Back pain is very common. In fact, it is estimated that 80% of the US population will experience back pain in their lifetime. Back pain comes in many forms, such as lower back pain, middle back pain, upper back pain, and low back pain with sciatica.
The back pain treatment session starts with thorough examination of your spinal column in order to determine displaced vertebrae, damaged discs, and all possible sources of back and neck pain. Some tests will be performed and some questions will be asked as part of the examination, because many different conditions may cause back pain.
Upper Back & Neck Pain
Pain in the upper back and neck is common. It can be acute (of sudden onset and painful) or can gradually come on through poor posture and other factors.
Getting a Diagnosis for your Back Pain
If you have tingling, numbness, or pain in your back, see a doctor. He or she will take your medical history, examine you, and possibly perform tests. These may include X-rays, imaging scans, or blood tests. After the examination, the pain management doctors and pain management professionals at Colorado Pain & Injury Specialists will clearly explain to you the condition, possible sources of your pain, and which pain treatment will help alleviate your pain, along with possible courses of action and next steps.
