Back Pain Q & A

What is back pain?

Back pain refers to any type of discomfort you feel in your back. The pain may be dull and achy or sharp and severe. Your pain may be constant or only occur during movement.

Acute back pain develops suddenly and unexpectedly and usually resolves within a few days or a few weeks. If your back pain lasts longer than three months, then you have chronic back pain.

Your provider at IYA Medical understands that pain conditions like chronic back pain significantly affect your quality of life. Care at IYA Medical centers on evidence-based treatments that address the cause of your pain rather than just your symptoms. 

When should I seek medical help for my back pain?

You should seek medical help for your back pain if the pain is severe or doesn’t get better after a few days of at-home care. You also benefit from medical care with the experts at IYA Medical if your back pain developed after an injury. 

In addition to acute back pain, you should also contact IYA Medical if you’ve been unable to find an effective treatment for managing your chronic back pain. 

What can I expect during a back pain evaluation?

You can expect a thorough evaluation at IYA Medical when you come to the office seeking help for your back pain. 

Your provider begins by first listening to the details of your experience, including how your back pain started, the types of symptoms you feel, and the activities that worsen or improve your symptoms. They also review your medical and family history and conduct a physical exam.

To determine an appropriate diagnosis and formulate the most effective treatment plan, your provider may recommend diagnostic imaging. IYA Medical offers total body scans, which use the latest in imaging technology to create a detailed view of your body’s important internal organs.
