The majority of adults experience back pain at some point in their lives. It may be a short-term pain from overexertion or a chronic condition that lasts for weeks, months or even years. Due to the complexity of the back, determining the exact cause of acute or chronic pain can be difficult. Dr. Harvinder Bhatti has the education, training and experience in back and spine disorders to help uncover the source of back pain and offer effective treatment options for back pain.
Back pain can begin quickly or slowly become more intense over time. Causes can range from muscle strain or spasms to nerve, ligament, cartilage or disc issues. Most back pain dissipates on its own as the tissues heal over several days. However, when pain persists for several weeks or longer, medical treatment may be required to relieve the pain and enable healing. This is when seeking the help of Dr. Bhatti can offer you the relief you need for your back pain.
Get Relief from Chronic Back Pain
The first step in treating chronic back pain is determining the cause of the pain. Dr. Bhatti will perform an exam to pinpoint the source of the pain. Since many components within the back are interlinked, it can often be a combination of factors that can be causing the pain. Dr. Bhatti can determine what options for treatment are best suited to relieve the pain and improve function. Treatments include non-operative options such as injections, physical therapy and minimally invasive surgeries, as well as more complex surgical procedures.
