Neurological Back Pain Treatment
Back pain is one of the most common types of chronic pain. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most difficult to diagnose and treat due to the variety of components that can cause similar symptoms. Back pain can be caused by spinal disorders, soft tissue damage, nerve damage or a combination of spinal conditions. At DOCS Health in Los Angeles, we offer the advantage of neurological back pain treatment and diagnosis to help our patients find relief.
There are many spine and orthopedic clinics that offer back pain treatments. However, most of these facilities view back pain from only an orthopedic and structural perspective. While muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones and other structures in the back can cause pain, the pain felt is through the nervous system. Neurologists, like our neurospine surgeons at DOCS Health, look at all possible sources of back pain to determine the best neurological back pain treatment plan.
Neurological Causes of Chronic Back Pain
Some back pain is caused solely by injuries or damage to the tissues in the back. A herniated disc or fractured vertebrae may need treatment to relieve pain. Other sources of back pain can be neurological in nature, requiring a different approach. Some of the possible causes of neurological or nerve-related back pain include:
- Vertebrae infections
- Spinal infections
- Spinal tumors
Having the benefits of neurology and spine specialists combined at one clinic can ensure all possible causes of back pain are explored. Our neurospine surgeons utilize the most advanced imaging and diagnostic testing available to determine the exact source of back pain. We utilize neurological back pain treatments and spinal surgery options, not one or the other, giving our patients a comprehensive treatment plan for back pain relief.
If you are suffering from chronic back pain, it is important to see a neurologist for diagnosis and treatment options. At DOCS Health, we offer advanced options for relieving back pain, treating both neurological and structural causes.
