At the Texas Institute of Pain & Spine, we are dedicated to finding the root cause of your back pain so that we can recommend the best possible back pain treatment for you. We treat each patient with care and compassion. Our goal is to effectively treat your pain so that you can live a full, rich life.

Causes of Back Pain

There are many causes of back pain that can result in both intermittent and chronic symptoms. Whatever your pain or symptoms are, we understand that back pain can disrupt your day-to-day living and affect your quality of life. Whether you suffer from upper back pain, lower back pain, or a combination of both, it is important to note that not all back pain is the same. We look at your symptoms and find the root cause of your back pain to create an effective back pain treatment plan specifically for you. Some common causes of back pain include:

  • Herniated discs – usually affect the lower back, and can result in numbness, muscle weakness, and pain
  • Degenerative conditions – Osteoarthritis, which affects the cartilage between spinal joints, and Spinal Stenosis, which is the narrowing of the spinal canal
  • Injury – Injuries due to athletics, extreme exercise, auto accidents, or other injuries can be muscular, skeletal, or both
  • Spondylolisthesis – A condition that causes misalignment of the bones in the vertebral column
  • Poor posture – Generally due to extended work at a desk or extended periods of standing for work without proper support

These conditions or even a combination of them can lead to severe back pain or chronic back pain. In addition to these conditions, there are other factors that can contribute to back pain that can exacerbate an existing condition or cause pain on their own. These include:

  • Inactive or sedentary lifestyle
  • Excess weight in the midsection
  • Heavy lifting for work
  • Prolonged psychological stress
  • Smoking

Any of these factors can intensify back pain or cause injury, leading to severe or chronic back pain. Fortunately, most back pain is treatable and manageable.
