Common Causes of Back Pain and How We Treat Them

Did you know that back pain is the number one cause of disability worldwide? 

Because your back is made up of bones, ligaments, joints, and muscles, if you irritate or injure just one of those areas, it can affect your entire back. It can disrupt your daily routine and stop you from enjoying your hobbies. 

When you have a hurt back, you need an accurate diagnosis, the right treatment, and overall quality care. At MultiCare Medical in Papillion, Nebraska, we’re a team of professionals that understand the causes of your back pain, and we have the expertise to treat it. 

Here are some common causes of back pain and the ways that we can treat them.

Causes of back pain

There are many ways to injure your back. If you’re an athlete, you can injure it while playing a sport and getting hit, or you might make a move that twists your back awkwardly. 

Back pain can also be caused by the simplest of movements, such as leaning over to pick up clothes from the floor or lifting a bag of groceries to the counter. Poor posture and obesity can contribute to back pain, as well.

If you experience an auto accident or a work injury, we have treatments and therapies that cater to your situation.

We also understand the seriousness of other issues that might play a role in your back pain, such as arthritis, kidney stones, blood clots, kidney infections, diseased internal organs, or bone loss.
