Arriving at a diagnosis can be frustrating at times and might make you feel a bit helpless. This is when you have to remind yourself to be patient with the process and remember that it will be worth it to try to get your pain managed appropriately.
When your doctor knows which type of back pain you have – and what may be causing it – it will then be easier to manage your pain more effectively.
Many people turn their back on their pain because they think it may go away, or because they don’t feel it is serious enough to make a doctor’s appointment.
Each case of back pain is different, but they can all negatively impact your life. Depending on your doctor’s diagnosis and recommendations, you might be able to manage and treat your back pain with exercise, physical therapy or medications.
We’ve created a short questionnaire to help you assess your back pain. Upon completion, we recommend sharing the results with your doctor to help identify the cause of your back pain.
