Back Pain

What is back pain?

Discomfort in your back is common. The pain you experience may be a dull, annoying ache or a sharp, debilitating pain that makes it difficult to manage your day-to-day activities. 

For many, the back pain they experience is acute and resolves within a few days to a few weeks. However, for some people, their acute back pain turns into chronic back pain, which means they’ve been experiencing discomfort for three or more months. In addition to affecting physical health, chronic back pain can also impact emotional and mental health.

Whether your pain is acute or chronic, dull or sharp, Dr. Weinberg can develop a treatment plan that provides relief and improves your quality of life. 

What causes back pain?

Back pain can develop from a range of causes. In most cases, the pain develops due to an acute or chronic condition that affects your back’s musculoskeletal components, which include your bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, or cartilage. 

Common musculoskeletal causes of back pain include:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Arthritis
  • Spinal deformity
  • Herniated disc
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Radiculopathy
  • Sciatica
  • Fracture

Your pain may result from an acute injury, such as a sports injury or auto accident, or from a degenerative condition that develops as you get older.

Although not as common, you can also develop back pain from an infection or certain types of cancer, such as bone cancer. 

What treatments can relieve my back pain?

Dr. Weinberg takes a conservative approach to the management of back pain. His techniques are based on well-researched scientific methods aimed at improving the health and function of your musculoskeletal system.

Dr. Weinberg custom designs a treatment plan based on the underlying cause of your back pain and your overall health. Your treatment plan may include:

  • Traditional chiropractic care
  • Active relief technique (ART) muscle work
  • Spinal decompression
  • Massage therapy

Dr. Weinberg is also board certified in physical therapy modalities and may, based on your needs, add treatments to your plan, such as ultrasound, traction, or electrotherapy. He may also create an active rehabilitation program for you to improve back strength and support to reduce your pain and prevent a recurrence of your discomfort.

Back pain can affect all aspects of your life. Dr. Weinberg works hard at helping you get the relief you seek by creating a targeted plan that not only relieves your pain, but also aims to improve your overall health for a better quality of life.
