Common Causes of Back Pain

Common Causes of Back Pain

by Stephanie Meadows
How many times did your mother tell you to stand up straight and stop slouching? As always, mother knew best! What you recall as nagging, actually was concern for legitimate medical reasons! Mother knew poor posture isn’t just unattractive; it’s also a catalyst for back pain and the many other medical conditions that can be attributed to back pain. Poor posture while doing everyday activities such as sitting at your computer, walking, or driving actually pushes your head forward, which brings your shoulders and neck forward as well. In fact, without a properly aligned spine, a number of other conditions – including gastrointestinal issues, difficulty breathing, and headaches – might eventually accompany your back pain.

Carolyn, a 38-year old Information Technology program manager, was not feeling her usual self lately. Having navigated through bankruptcy, a messy divorce, and caring for her mother’s early onset Alzheimer’s, she found herself going days at a time without eating or finding restful sleep. When rumors began circulating that her company was on the verge of a buy-out with a large international firm, she knew that all of her executive coping mechanisms and “go-to” friends’ support would not be enough to offset the emotional deluge that was starting to wash over every part of her being.

How Your Physical Therapist Can Help Your Back Pain

by Stephanie Meadows
Many of us experience back pain, and it can last for weeks or months. In fact, back pain is currently one of the most popular reasons people visit their doctor or pain specialist.

Medial Branch Blocks

Medial Branch Blocks

by Stephanie Meadows
The spine consists of 33 vertebrae within your spinal column. The vertebrae contain multiple critical elements, responsible for enabling our spine to be able to function properly. Each of these vertebrae is connected by two joints called facet joints. The facet joints are then connected to medial nerves, which are responsible for carrying pain signals away from the spine to the rest of the body.

Pain Management For Arthritis

by Stephanie Meadows
The goal of pain management is to eliminate or reduce your pain so that you can live a healthy, active, and productive lifestyle. To accomplish this, our pain management doctors may recommend interventional procedures, physical therapy, medication, or a combination of treatments to help you manage and reduce pain caused by a variety of orthopedic or neurological conditions and injuries. For many people suffering through chronic pain and stiffness, arthritis is often the culprit.

What Exactly is Family Medicine?

by Stephanie Meadows
When it comes to choosing a doctor for your family, it can be a very hard decision to make. When your family is sick, your head becomes filled with concerns and thoughts of fear and worry. As you have seen previously how the doctor’s office routine usually goes, we often wonder whether things would ever be different. The answer is yes, as family medicine doctors are different than all the others. Family medicine physicians are dedicated to treating the “whole” person, and the whole family.

Living in Chronic Pain Will Lower Your Lifespan

Living in Chronic Pain Will Lower Your Lifespan

by Stephanie Meadows
Being in pain is quite uncomfortable for just about everybody. Even minor pain, such as a stubbed toe or a paper cut, is unpleasant, but that pain fades relatively quickly. Imagine being in pain that never fades, or that fades only to come back even stronger a few hours later. This is what people with chronic pain have to deal with, often every day.

by Stephanie Meadows
Many of us may experience general and acute musculoskeletal pain from time to time that lasts for just a few days, often the result of injury or overexertion. However, when pain in your joints, muscles, and bones becomes more chronic, severe, and persistent for more than a few days, you should see a doctor. In many cases, this is where a rheumatologist and the specialty of rheumatology comes into play.
