Back pain is a common complaint affecting about 80% of people at some point. You can develop back pain from any number of causes, including an acute injury, degenerative conditions, or an underlying disease.
Common conditions that cause back pain include:
Sometimes back pain originates from problems involving other areas of the body, such as the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) in the pelvis.
The type of pain you feel may range from a dull ache to sharp, shooting pain. Back pain usually resolves within a few days or a few weeks. However, if you have back pain that lasts longer than three months, your condition is chronic.
You should consider scheduling a back pain management consultation at Silver Spine & Neurological Center — Interventional Pain Management & Spine Surgery if you have chronic pain, severe back pain, or pain that’s worsening over time.
Dr. Silver also recommends coming in for a consultation if you’ve tried other medical interventions for your back pain and failed to get relief. Or, if you had back surgery and continue to have pain, this is called failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS).
Dr. Silver is an experienced fellowship-trained spine neurosurgeon and has performed thousands of successful spine surgeries over his 20-year career. He takes a comprehensive approach to back pain management, creating plans that provide long-term relief.
He listens intently to your concerns and asks detailed questions about your symptoms. Dr. Silver’s goal during your evaluation is to get an accurate diagnosis so he can create an effective treatment plan.
Your back pain management treatment options depend on your diagnosis and symptoms. Dr. Silver always considers conservative therapies first, such as physical therapy and interventional pain management treatments like epidural injections, nerve blocks, or radiofrequency ablation.
Dr. Silver is skilled in minimally invasive and complex spine surgery and may move on to surgical interventions if conservative care fails to provide relief.
For conditions like SIJ pain, he offers SIJ injections and fusion as same-day surgeries. For FSBS, he can determine if you need reconstructive spine surgery, minimally invasive outpatient spine surgery, or interventional pain management with injections and spinal cord stimulation.
