Back Pain Treatments

Back pain affects many of us, and as we age, the chances of being affected by back pain increase significantly. That’s why Cleveland, OH, residents should rely on a name they can trust. Dr. James O’Reilly and his team at Broadway Orthopedic and Sports Medicine of Ohio are spine health specialists, and they offer comprehensive treatment options for back pain relief.

Types of Back Pain

Back pain usually falls into one of three categories. These are:

  • Acute back pain (short term)
  • Subacute back pain (short term pain that comes and goes)
  • Chronic back pain (long term back pain)

Causes of Back Pain

Back pain can occur for several reasons. These include accidental trauma, including auto injury and back pain due to repetitive motion tasks. Sports injuries are also prevalent and should be taken seriously and treated correctly to prevent long-term side effects. Old age, poor posture, and various ailments and illnesses, including osteoporosis and arthritis, may cause back pain. Ruptured discs and muscle or ligament strain may contribute to back pain.

Regardless of the cause, it affects our quality of life. Sometimes back pain is just a nuisance, but other times it becomes debilitating and affects your day-to-day health and overall wellness.

Dr. O’Reilly and his team serving Cleveland, OH, would like residents suffering from back pain to know that establishing the root cause of back pain is not always straightforward. Treatment will begin with a thorough assessment and may often involve tackling back pain with an integrative approach.

Treatments for Back Pain

Luckily, for those of us who suffer from back pain, several non-surgical methods of treatment are available to help alleviate our suffering. The first step is assessment, allowing your health practitioner to isolate the affected area and establish the type of back pain you are experiencing. This will enable them to determine what treatment will be most successful for your back pain.

Treatment options available at our cutting-edge facility include:

  • Spinal adjustment and manipulation
  • Spinal decompression
  • Acupuncture
  • Electrical stimulation therapies
  • Massage therapy
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Therapeutic exercise.

You may need only one or a combination of these treatments to recover from your backache. Therapeutic exercise is especially valuable as part of an integrative treatment because it allows you to practice stretches at home that may help to improve your mobility.
