Treatment For Back Pain
Back pain is a complicated problem that millions of people suffer with each and every day. Unfortunately, the nature of the back is complex, and there are many root sources for pain, from muscle and alignment problems to disc disorders. This means it’s vital to properly diagnose the cause of the pain so that an effective treatment plan can be implemented.
While back pain is commonly due to physical trauma, including car accidents, falls, and other types of injury, there are many other causes. At Cherry Health Center, we see patients with a large range of back problems, including common issues such as:
- Fractures and dislocations
- Degenerative disc disease
- Disc herniation and bulging discs
- Facet syndrome / synovitis / capsulitis
- Osteoarthritis/ degenerative joint disease
- Compression fracture
- Physical trauma
As you can see, there are many causes for back pain. Our first goal is to properly diagnose the cause so that we can treat it effectively. To do this, we employ a range of sophisticated tools, including X-Rays (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Myelogram discography, EMG/Nerve conduction studies, and bone density testing. These allow us to image and evaluate the bones, joints, nerves, and soft tissues so that we can offer our patients the relief they deserve.
Cherry Health Center is proud to offer residents of Springfield and surrounding areas freedom from back pain. If you need help overcoming back pain, just call (417) 413-5900 to schedule an appointment today.
