Back Pain Q&A
What is back pain?
Back pain refers to any discomfort you experience in your back. This includes dull aches to sharp, debilitating pain. Your back pain may develop from many causes, including an acute injury or an underlying degenerative condition.
Though pain can develop in any area of your back, lower back pain is the most common.
The experienced interdisciplinary health care team at Downtown’s Healthcare specializes in the management of back pain and has helped many people get the relief they need using natural, non-surgical treatments.
What symptoms does back pain cause?
Back pain symptoms vary in type and severity. Common symptoms include:
- Recurring lower back pain
- Numbness and/or tingling in the leg(s)
- Muscle weakness, difficulty lifting regular objects
- Shoulder pain
- Muscle spasms
- Foot drop, weakness in toes, or numbness in the foot
- Numbness in arms or hands
- Numbness in buttocks
- Muscle stiffness and/or tenderness
- Loss of bladder or bowel control
- Throw back out easily
If you’re experiencing these symptoms, then your back pain may come from conditions that are degenerative in nature.
These conditions don’t heal naturally without treatment and get worse over time. The longer you go without effective treatment, the greater your chance for extensive damage.
The pain management experts at Downtown’s Healthcare specialize in the treatment of degenerative back conditions and provide treatments that alleviate your pain and improve spine and back health.

The origin of spine pain is often misidentified. On top of that the number one reason a person is prescribed an opioid is for back pain. Studies suggest that up to 150,000 people die every year in the USA because of dangerous opioid prescriptions. Our experience in treating the spine allows us to address as many factors as possible to gain insight into the true cause of the problem. We identify the most probable sources of pain and select the most appropriate treatment options available. Only then can the natural healing process be initiated using the safest, least invasive procedure possible.
