Why Does My Back Hurt?
This simple question actually has many layers to it. We’ve been treating back and neck pain in the Denver area for almost 20 years, and we’ve learned that the average Colorado resident is anything but average. One answer simply does not fit all.
Back pain can be caused by various injuries and conditions. The treatment your doctor recommends for your back pain will depend on your medical history, the type of pain, the original cause of the pain, and whether your pain is acute (short-lived, healing within 6-12 weeks) or chronic (ongoing pain).
Luckily, most back pain won’t require surgery and will often begin to get better in 4-6 weeks with rest and exercise. For the rest, we’ve gathered some information on the various procedures and techniques that may be recommended by your doctor to resolve your pain.
