80% of you will have Back or Neck Pain
Living with pain isn’t easy, but 80% of Americans will experience back or neck pain in their lifetimes. Often, the pain is misdiagnosed, leading to wrongful and addictive pain medications. Understanding that there are several underlying reasons pain is the most common reason people seek out pain management.
Pain management at the Southeastern Spine Institute combines science with humanity. Our doctors listen to your pain complaints before giving you a thorough medical examination. Pinpointing the reason behind the pain is the key to giving you lasting relief.
Reasons for Your Pain
Pain can happen anytime in your life. Although older people feel more severe pain than young, pain doesn’t discriminate. A pain management plan with your doctor can help you maneuver through your life without feeling debilitated.
A common reason for pain is an injury that hasn’t healed properly. Lifestyle also plays a big role in your pain. If you lead a sedentary life or sit for long hours at your desk, your back — along with your legs, shoulder and neck — can start to hurt.
There also are several medical conditions that can cause pain. Diabetes and high blood pressure, for example, can elevate certain pain nerves. Ruling out these and other severe medical conditions like a herniated disc or arthritis is reason enough to consult a pain management specialist at The Southeastern Spine Institute
