Back pain is one of the common reasons people come to the clinic. The pain may be from the muscles in the back or from the spine, the back bones themselves. It may be from the discs that separate each of the back bones (vertebrae). On rare occasions it may be from an internal organ such as a kidney. The provider will talk to you about the history of the back pain and then do an exam looking at the parts of the body that may be causing the pain. Depending on your case, we may need to do imaging (x-ray, CT or MRI) or possibly do blood or urine testing. We will make recommendations based on your particular case.
