Back pain is common and you are not alone. It is the most common reasons people visit their doctor or call out sick from work. Back pain can affect people of any age for many different reasons. It can range from a dull, gnawing ache to an intense, excruciating sharp pain. Back pain can be a stinging or burning sensation from the lower back to the back of the thighs and sometimes to the lower legs.
Common causes of back pain can be due to muscle sprains, muscle spasms, bulging or herniated discs, arthritis, but many people are unaware that back pain can also be due to a problem with your blood flow and circulation.
Normally blood is pumped from our heart to the rest of our body. In our legs we need valves in our vessels to help recycle blood back to the heart and keep circulation flowing. However, over time those vessels can stretch and those valves can no longer work as efficient. As a result, blood and waste products begin to pool in our legs and that’s when we can start to develop the lower back pain.
At Wellness and Surgery we can perform a quick 10 minute ultrasound to help us diagnose and treat you so you can live a healthier more active life free of back pain.
Wellness and Surgery has state-of-the-art testing equipment in the office, including ultrasound, electromyography (EMG), and nerve conduction studies. All of these tests can isolate the specific areas affected, nerve pain pathways, and the exact cause of your pain.
And also offer muscle injections that can decrease pain and help with recovery!
