Buford Back Doctor
Your spine serves as the body’s primary support structure, and it connects and supports various sections of the musculoskeletal system. The backbone helps us to perform ordinary functions such as sitting, standing, stretching, and walking.
Back injuries, age-related wear and tear, spinal conditions, and other issues can alter your backbone’s integrity leading to back pain. Back pain can manifest in two primary forms; acute spine pain and chronic spine pain.
Acute spinal pain typically occurs after a traumatic fall or strenuous lifting and can affect an individual for up to 6 weeks. Although a chiropractor can help alleviate acute spine pain, it is always best to visit a spine doctor because they can identify the root cause and treat the pain more effectively.
Chronic spine pain refers to back pain that lasts for three or more months. This type of spinal condition often has other symptoms, including bowel function issues, fever, chills, insomnia, and numbness in the arms or legs. Prolonged back issues requires a qualified spine specialist to treat.
HOW BUFORD BACK PAIN DOCTORS DIAGNOSE BACK PAIN
Buford orthopedists use various diagnostic tests to identify the cause and nature of the back pain condition or injury. Back pain diagnosis could involve one or more of the following tests:
1. Physical examination involving a back specialist who analyzes physical aspects such as the ability to stand, reflexes, and sensitivity of the legs’ nerves.
2. Blood and urine assays to identify underlying conditions.
3. Spinal X-rays to check the alignment of bones and also identify breaks.
4. CT and MRI scans to analyze spinal disks, ligaments, nerves, and muscles.
5. Electromyography tests to identify nerve conduction issues.
