When Should You See a Doctor About Lower Back Pain?

There are many different causes of lower back pain, ranging from poor posture to more serious conditions like spinal stenosis or herniated discs. However, one common symptom that all types of lower back pain share is, well, pain in the lower back! This pain can vary depending on the individual – some may experience a sharp, stabbing sensation when bending over or twisting, while others may have a dull and chronic ache that gets worse throughout the day.

If you’re experiencing any type of lower back pain, it’s always best to consult with a doctor or spine specialist to get an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

Treatment Options for Lower Back Pain

If you’re suffering from back pain, you may be able to find relief with conservative treatments like physical therapy, over-the-counter or prescription pain medication, and rest. In some cases, lifestyle changes may also help.

If these methods don’t work, we offer minimally invasive outpatient treatments that can help relieve your pain and get you back to your everyday activities pain-free. These procedures include things like a laminoforaminotomy to treat spinal stenosis or an artificial disc replacement for a herniated disc.
