Back Pain Q & A

Gershon Pain Specialists

What causes back pain?

Back pain is a common problem for adults of all ages, and it can develop from numerous conditions and complications. The most common causes of back pain usually are related to mechanical issues or soft-tissue injuries. This can affect the discs of the spine, nerves, and other structures that typically keep the back in a pain-free state.

You may experience back pain after an injury, from repetitive motions, or due to bulging or herniated discs. In some cases, back pain is the normal consequence of aging. In others, it has to do with an underlying medical condition, such as scoliosis or spinal stenosis.

Sciatica, which involves nerve irritation in the lower spine, is also a common cause of back pain. Patients with sciatica often experience pain that radiates from the lower back down through one side of the buttock and leg.

Will I need surgery for back pain?

While some patients may eventually need surgery to address back pain, there are several nonsurgical ways to manage and eliminate pain that can be successful. At Gershon Pain Specialists, the team can help you explore your options, which may include a plan to put off or delay surgery as long as possible.
