When you’re looking for answers about the causes, and possible solutions, for your aching back, schedule an appointment at Pain Treatment Specialists. Their team of Harvard-trained pain doctors specialize in treating pain conditions with minimally invasive treatments that avoid surgery and restore your quality of life. The back pain doctors at Pain Treatment Specialists understand that back and leg pain impacts your daily activities as well as your overall well-being. Their goal as interventional pain doctors is relieving your pain so that you can regain your confidence and get back to living your best life.

What are the Major Causes of Back and Leg Pain?

If you’re not sure where to begin the conversation about your back and leg pain, consider asking the following questions during your consultation at Pain Treatment Specialists:

  • What causes sharp back pain?
  • Where does back pain come from?
  • Why is my back suddenly hurting?
  • What are major causes of back pain?
  • What organs can cause back pain?
  • What can back pain mean?
When back and leg pain disrupt your daily activities, it’s time to schedule an appointment with a pain doctor. The nationally-recognized pain doctors at Pain Treatment Specialists offer a wide variety of minimally invasive solutions for chronic pain issues at their state-of-the-art pain clinics. Our knowledgeable and compassionate pain doctors are able to explain the causes of your back and leg pain, and customize a treatment plan based on your specific needs.

These are all good questions to ask during your initial consultation at our pain clinic. From here, your pain specialist guides the conservation about your specific pain experiences, and how your back and leg pain is affecting your daily activities.

One of the major causes of back pain is overuse due to repetitive motions. An example of this is your back feeling sore after an afternoon of gardening, shoveling, or raking leaves. Your arms and back completed the same repetitive motions in a manner that is different from your day-to-day activities, and this causes irritation, swelling, and pain in your back.

Sciatica is another cause of lower back pain. Your sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body, and branches from your lower back through your buttocks, hips, and legs. A common symptom of sciatica is sharp back pain followed by leg weakness. Sciatic nerve pain is quick, intense, and typically affects only one side of your body. This condition occurs when there is pressure on the sciatic nerve, often caused by herniated discs.

No matter the cause of your back and leg pain, the team at Pain Treatment Specialists have a pain treatment plan that works to alleviate your pain. Book an appointment at one of our pain clinics in NYC, Long Island, or NJ and find out what’s causing your pain.

Is a Steroid Injection Helpful for Back Pain?

Yes, corticosteroid injections are highly effective at treating back pain. It is a minimally invasive procedure that provides powerful and targeted pain relief. However, there are many types of leg pain and back pain.This is why Pain Treatment Specialists offer a variety of pain treatments that address a myriad of pain conditions.

A facet nerve block is another treatment that is useful for back or neck pain caused by osteoarthritis. Facet joints often develop arthritis from wear and tear and overuse, and radiate pain signals to the brain. Your neck pain doctor uses a local anesthetic to block these pain signals, which provides long-lasting relief.

Trigger point injections are useful for tight, knotted muscles. A local anesthetic is combined with a corticosteroid injection, which relaxes muscles and relieves pain.

The back pain doctors at Pain Treatment Specialists are ready to help you get rid of your back pain and begin feeling better. In addition to back pain, our pain clinics also provide neck, hip, elbow, shoulder, and knee pain treatments.

What Causes Sudden Back Pain?

Sudden back pain can be the result of an injury, accident, or fall. If you’ve been in a car accident and your back hurts, this is an example of acute pain. If you are suffering from acute back pain and it is highly painful, you should visit an urgent care clinic or emergency room immediately.

Herniated discs can also cause sudden back pain. When the soft center of a spinal disc pushes through the exterior casing, it irritates surrounding nerves. This sharp nerve pain may occur at any time when you move, which makes it unpredictable.

Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spaces in your spine, which puts pressure on the nerves in the back. This reduced space compresses your spinal cord and irritates the nerves, causing sudden back pain.

No matter the cause of your back or leg pain, it’s critical that you look for medical advice that helps you feel better. Contact the highly-rated team at Pain Treatment Specialists and learn how our interventional pain doctors can improve your overall quality of life.
