Easing Your Back Pain

If you’re suffering from back pain, you’re not alone. In fact, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, back pain is the second most common neurological ailment in the U.S. after headaches. At Houston Northwest Medical Center, our orthopedic specialists offer a comprehensive range of orthopedic techniques and procedures to help relieve back pain caused by conditions like herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spine or back fractures and more.

Finding Relief for Back Pain

Back pain can happen to anyone, but there are factors that increase your likelihood of experiencing pain, including your:

  • Age
  • Fitness level
  • Diet
  • Heredity
  • Race

To determine the best treatment for your unique situation, our orthopedic specialists use advanced diagnostic imaging, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scans and X-ray imaging. Treatments such as anti-inflammatory medicine, ice, heat and massage are often successful in healing back pain and helping individuals return to their daily activities.

For some, surgery may be necessary. If surgery is your best treatment option, you can rest assured knowing our orthopedic specialists are trained in advanced surgical techniques, including minimally invasive spinal surgery procedures. After surgery, we offer a comprehensive orthopedic rehabilitation program delivered by our trusted rehabilitation team.
