Back Pain in North Central Arkansas and South Central Missouri

man holding his lower backWhen back pain starts, it's time to see a doctor. Even if your back pain seems like it's going away, we recommend that you at least mention the incident to your primary care provider during your next visit. Ninety percent of back pain episodes are recurrent, so if it happened once, it will likely happen again. By speaking with a doctor after the first incident, you can be prepared for the next and take steps to make sure your recovery is as fast and comfortable as possible.

You should always seek medical attention for spinal complications. Our orthopedic specialists are experienced in a variety of conditions, including:

  • Chronic aches and pains
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Damage from wear and tear
  • Slipped discs
  • Neck pain and neck injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Congenital spinal conditions
  • Work injuries
  • Back pain from poor posture

When it comes to treating back pain, diagnosing the problem is only a small step. You need the expert assistance of specially trained orthopedists that can develop a treatment plan that is effective in the long term and will work to remedy the pain quickly.

Finding the Best Treatment

There are many possible treatments for back pain:

  • Physical therapy
  • Light exercise
  • Integrative medicine
  • Surgery
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Medication

While one option can help relieve the pain, it might not address the underlying problem that caused the condition in the first place. By working with the Baxter Regional orthopedic team, you can find out how effective a treatment truly is by monitoring your progress over time. Our goal is to make sure patients stay happy and healthy for years to come. We don't prescribe a treatment and shove you out the door, we work with you to find the solution that works best.
