Back Pain

Back pain is a common symptom that can be triggered by several different causes, including injury, accidents or degenerative conditions such as arthritis, disc disease or a herniated disc. This pain may be chronic or acute, depending on the cause, and can range in intensity from a dull ache to intense, throbbing pain.

Approximately 80% of the population will experience some form of back pain in their lifetime. Proper treatment starts with proper diagnosis. The quicker you get evaluated by a skilled staff the quicker you start the road to recovery.

At Comprehensive Medical Care, we would first start with a thorough physical exam to identify the cause of pain. There are four primary pain generating tissues in the spine. Through patient history and physical examination we would try and determine which tissue was causing the pain.  We would then try and determine which factors are contributing to a patient’s ongoing pain experience which typically has to do with poor muscular control.

Once we make a determination that you are a candidate for the conservative treatment that we offer, we will create a customized treatment plan to get you back on the road to recovery!

Degenerative Disc Disease

As we age, the water and protein content of the body's cartilage changes. This change results in weaker, more fragile and thin cartilage. Because both the discs and the joints that stack the vertebrae (facet joints) are partially composed of cartilage, these areas are subject to wear and tear over time (degenerative changes). The gradual deterioration of the disc between the vertebrae is referred to as Degenerative Disc Disease.
