Back Pain Treatment
Back pain and associated complaints are some of the most frequent spinal issues that send patients to see their doctor. Medical research reveals that almost 65 million American adults complain of back pain at some point, and about 8% of that number suffer from persistent or chronic back pain. Such pain can severely limit your day-to-day activities and lifestyle. Unfortunately, it will only grow worse without back pain treatment from a neurological specialist.
Most back pain is caused by overwork, poor posture, repeated actions that promote wear-and-tear, accidents and degenerative conditions like arthritis. Back injuries or conditions that cause pain have a multiplied effect, as it becomes difficult to do many things when suffering from persistent back pain. Your life can become completely focused on avoiding things that aggravate your back pain, effectively shutting down any quality of life you previously enjoyed.

Back pain treatment must be tailored to the specific cause, as there are many potential causes of back pain.

Some causes of chronic back pain can be treated with non-invasive methods, such as physical therapy, hot and cold therapy or other measures. Dr. Rajamand may recommend some of these treatments in addition to or in combination with other therapies for pain management and rehabilitation. Over-the-counter or prescription medications for pain and inflammation may also be indicated.
For more serious back pain causes, Dr. Rajamand may recommend injections and/or neurosurgical options for repairs. Many of these surgical options can be performed using small tools and a microscope. This requires smaller incisions, less invasive measures, less damage to surrounding tissues and less risk of infection. It also results in much faster recovery times for patients.
