Back Pain Q & A

What causes back pain?

Back pain can be caused by any number of issues in your body. It might stem from a problem with your back itself or be the result of a separate condition. Fortunately, Dr. Manohar has extensive experience honing in on the cause of back pain so he can help you find the most effective treatment possible. 

At Florida Regional Pain Management, some of the most common causes of back pain that Dr. Manohar and his team treat include:

  • Ruptured discs
  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament strains
  • Osteoporosis
  • Arthritis 
  • Scoliosis
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis

Dr. Manohar is experienced at diagnosing the cause of your back pain, then personalizing a treatment plan to you. 

How is back pain diagnosed?

Your diagnosis starts with a thorough physical exam. During this time, Dr. Manohar asks you questions to help him better understand your back pain, like whether it came on suddenly (acute back pain) or has lingered long-term (chronic back pain). He may use other diagnostic tools, like X-rays, CT Scans and MRI, to get a better idea of what’s going on inside your back.

Once Dr. Manohar determines the cause of your back pain, he starts building a treatment program for you.   

How is back pain treated?

Dr. Manohar and the entire team at Florida Regional Pain Management take a comprehensive approach, treating you as a whole person instead of applying singular treatments in isolation. They personalize a treatment plan for you that’s designed to help you find back pain relief as quickly as possible, while helping you avoid surgery. 

Most back pain treatment plans involve some combination of:

  • Physical therapy 
  • Physician-prescribed home Spine Conditioning exercises
  • Interventional procedures, like pain-relieving injections
  • Lifestyle changes, like exercise, nutrition, and supplement recommendations
  • Smoking cessation
  • Medications
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
  • Stem cell therapy

Dr. Manohar aims to not only put a stop to your pain, but also to give your body resources it can use to fully heal. With PRP and stem cell therapy, for example, he can introduce growth factors to trigger regeneration at the site of your back pain. This brings you lasting pain relief.
