Diagnosing Chronic Back Pain With Atlanta Orthopedic Care

For those who suffer from functional back pain that isn’t caused by structural adjustments, our Atlanta Orthopedic Doctors may look to understand the patient’s family history and recommend following through with a complete examination. Using imaging devices like MRIs and CT Scans, our Orthopedic Doctors can develop a comprehensive view of the patient’s condition, giving them the information they need to develop a custom treatment program. In cases that are more severe where the patient experiences significant pain, weight loss, and loses sensation in their limbs – a deeper investigation will be required.

Atlanta Orthopedic Treatment For Chronic Back Pain

Most chronic back pain patients can be treated with a combination of heat therapy, stabilization exercises, tissue massage, and spinal adjustments. Physiotherapy, which includes ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and light conditioning help reduce inflammation, while also restoring flexibility to the muscles that surround the spine.

Once the predominant symptoms have subsided, our Atlanta orthopedic doctors can offer a variety of exercises to perform at home, which will help strengthen the back muscles and prevent future relapses from occurring. They can also provide recommendations on how to improve personal posture, how to lift heavy objects without pulling a back muscle, and even what type of mattress works best for preventing morning back pain.
