Lower Back Pain Treatment

Evidence-Based Solutions for Back Pain in Texas

Lower back pain is one of the most common types of back pain. This area contains a complex series of nerves and tissue that affect almost every other part of the body. It is also one of the most frequently strained parts of the body for people of all ages. Even children can experience low back pain if they put too much pressure on it.

There are numerous possible causes for lower back pain, including:

  • A slipped or herniated disc
  • Strain from heavy lifting
  • Wear-and-tar from overuse
  • Stretching and exercise
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Obesity
  • Stress
  • Spinal stenosis

Back pain is considered chronic when it lasts for 12 weeks or more. At Pain Specialists of America, we treat both temporary and chronic lower back pains. Treatment for lower back pain is usually noninvasive or minimally invasive, and it may include joint injections, medication, hot/cold therapy, and massage. If these treatments are ineffective, then surgery may be required.
