Persistent or chronic lower or upper back difficulties on the other hand, can become a very unwelcome part of our lives. Common causes of back problems include aging, muscular or spinal degeneration, and injury to muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, sacroiliac joints, bursa, nerve roots and the tailbone. The discs in your back can become affected by herniations, protrusions or extrusions.
Many people suffering in their upper or lower back don't have a clear diagnosis for their pain. A proper diagnosis is needed to ensure you get the treatment you need. We take pride in our ability to consistently and accurately diagnose back problems for our patients. Sometimes it isn't a back problem at all, even though it feels like it. Other anatomic structures such as the hip joints are often confused for lower back discomfort. Our diagnostics will accurately determine the cause of your back pain.
We have multiple diagnostic procedures for back pain at our disposal: MRI scans, x-rays, nerve conduction studies, CT scans, myelograms and diagnostic injections. If you are in need of an experienced pain treatment doctor, give us a call today at (405) 438-0913. We will accurately diagnose the issues you are experiencing and establish the best treatment plan to help get rid of, or at the very least, manage your back pain effectively.
