Acute Back Pain
If you've suffered an acute back injury, we can help. Millions of people see medical providers for back pain because it is such a common ailment.
Acute Back Injury Causes
The majority of back pain injuries are caused by damage to soft tissues such as muscles, ligaments and tendons. Symptoms typically improve on their own within a week or two. However, some back injuries stem from a more serious injury such as:
- Herniated disk
- Bulging disk
- Bone spurs
- Fractured vertebrae
- Spinal stenosis
Our qualified medical professionals can help decide if the symptom is serious or should be treated with pain medication and muscle relaxers.
Severe Acute Back Injury
If the pain in your back is limiting function or not improving over a 48 hour period of receiving medicine, it may be time to see the doctor. Our team will run through sensory, motor and strength testing to identify the severity of the condition. We may even run an X-ray to identify anatomic abnormality if there was a trauma that predated the injury.
If oral medications and limitation of physical activity are not improving your back pain, contact our team or come in to our location. Our medical professionals can determine next steps for your acute back pain treatment.
