Treatment & Management Of Back Pain In Texas

What’s Causing Your Back Pain?

Affecting up to 80% of the population at some point in their lives, back pain can be acute, chronic or intermittent. It can result from injury, overuse or disease, and cause mild discomfort, chronic strain or even immobilizing pain.

When it comes to the most common causative factors of back pain, a bulging or herniated spinal disc could often be the source of the problem, as well as any sort of muscle strain or compromise. Even excess body mass can cause discomfort in the lower lumbar, as well as sleeping position or poor posture with repetitive exposure (like working at your desk without the appropriate support). Other conditions include disease-related factors such as scoliosis, osteoporosis or arthritis.

Lower back pain is the most common form of back pain.

Treatment for back pain will most often revolve around managing pain and inflammation with over-the-counter or prescription medication and rest if it’s due to muscle strain or fatigue. Most treatment is nonsurgical as surgical procedures are only recommended when there is evidence of nerve damage or when the cause of the pain is structural and there are surgical procedures available to correct the issue.

The most common nonsurgical options include:



When it comes to more severe issues like a herniated disc, treatment will depend on the diagnosis and severity of the disc issue, with the goal being long-term relief and greater mobility. If non-surgical options are not effective, a discectomy can be performed to remove the herniated disc material pressing against the nerve root or spinal cord.

  • Spinal laminectomy: removal of bone spurs or any other bony projections
  • Spinal fusion: the intervertebral disc is removed and the vertebra are fused together to remove friction between bony parts and consequently reduce pain
  • Artificial disc replacement: an alternative to spinal fusion in which the damaged intervertebral is removed and replaced by a synthetic disc
