Back Pain Q & A

What is back pain?

Back pain is a common complaint among many patients. It may develop because of an injury, wear-and-tear related to aging, or a chronic disease. It could stem from problems with your spine, nerves, muscles, or surrounding tissues. See the Synergy team at the first sign of a problem.

What does back pain feel like?

Back discomfort may appear as:

  • Sharp pain
  • Dull aching
  • Radiating discomfort
  • Sore muscles
  • Numbness
  • Stiffness
  • Tingling
  • Burning pain
  • Weakness
  • Limited mobility

The pain you feel might be mild and not bother you much or debilitating in some cases when left untreated. 

What can cause back pain?

Back pain may be due to:

  • Ruptured disc
  • Muscle damage
  • Pinched nerve
  • Sciatica
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Excessive lordosis

You might injure your back due to a car accident, falling, playing sports, or lifting something heavy, or you may have arthritis or osteoporosis. 

How does my provider pinpoint the cause of back pain?

The Synergy team diagnoses the cause of back pain after completing a physical exam, reviewing your symptoms and medical history, and ordering blood tests, nerve testing, or an imaging procedure if necessary to make a final diagnosis. They then tailor a holistic pain-relieving treatment plan just for you.
