Back pain can dramatically impact your quality of life. Everyday tasks can become uncomfortable at best. If you currently suffer from chronic back pain, it is likely that you may not be able to do many things you used to be able to do – or you may hesitate with every movement of your body, anticipating the pain to come.
The specialized medical providers at Core Medical Center work hard to locate the root source of back pain. It is our aim to treat the underlying cause of your pain, rather than mask it with addictive painkillers or an expensive and risky surgery. With us, you will receive top-notch healthcare in the most natural way possible, avoiding many unwanted side effects.
Symptoms of Back Problems
You may be surprised to hear that a problem with your back may not necessarily result in back pain. In other words, even if you have no back pain, it does not mean you do not have a medical issue with your back. So, how do you know if you have a back problem? Here are some symptoms:
- Sharp, stabbing pain
- Tingling, numbness, or weakness
- Trouble gripping or lifting objects
- Problems with walking, balance, or coordination
- Loss of bladder or bowel control
Common Causes of Back Pain
