What Causes Back Pain?

Back pain is an all-too-common ailment in American adults, stemming from a variety of factors including injury such as auto accidents, lifting something heavy improperly, sports injuries, obesity, kidney stones, and more. Physical conditions causing knee or hip problems, arthritis, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis and conditions affecting the spine or discs such as herniated discs, bulging discs, or nerve-related problems can also cause back pain. Determining the underlying cause of back pain requires special expertise in order to ensure the most effective and appropriate treatment is applied.

How is back pain diagnosed?

Dr. Marin diagnoses back pain with an examination, which includes a range of motion test, orthopedic tests, muscle tests, and neurological test. During the exam, passive movements may also be used to pinpoint pain sources, and patients may be asked to perform simple exercises as well. Dr. Marin offers diagnostic imaging services such as x-rays as part of his convenient mobile service.
