The number of conditions that people can develop throughout their lifetime that result in chronic pain seems innumerable, but fortunately, so are the procedures and techniques to help solve or manage the pain. Some of the main problems we deal with include the following. Back Pain Most Americans will suffer from back pain in some form or another at some point in their lives. \t Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor. \tIt’s one of the leading causes of job-related disability. \t It’s a common reason people take days off work. Axial back pain, resulting from “wear and tear” on the spine’s discs, joints, and bones, is one of the leading causes of chronic back pain. People often experience problems in the lower back, but it can occur at any point along the spine. It also commonly sends pain into the extremities and can make moving, walking, and sleeping difficult. Spinal stenosis is another common cause of back pain. This is when the spine narrows, compressing the nerves that branch off from the spine. This narrowing of the spine can be the result of a herniated disc or arthritis, and can also cause pain to radiate into the extremities, especially the legs (sciatica). Inflammation of the SI joint (sacro-litis) is another common cause of back pain. This is often misdiagnosed as axial back pain, as the symptoms are very similar. Our pain doctors in Pocatello offer many different techniques to help with back pain. Neck Pain Whether it’s from poor posture or some kind of damage, neck pain is something that can make your life difficult to manage. The former is often the result of too much time in front of the computer, the latter is often caused by whiplash or some kind of lifting injury. Another common factor is osteoarthritis. Neck pain usually manifests as a dull ache and limited mobility. Headaches and pain in the shoulders and arms are also common, as well as tingling in the extremities. Arm tingling usually indicates a pinched nerve which, over time, can cause permanent damage. There are many other possible causes of neck pain, including: \tFibromyalgia \t Infection \tMeningitis \tPolymyalgia \t Inflamed lymph nodes Our pain doctors in Pocatello offer a number of treatment options for neck pain.
