Lower back pain is felt at the base of the back and it can be caused by heavy items lifting, by overstretching the lower back muscles or by the displacement of an inter-vertebral disc. Direct injury can also be the cause of lower back pain. Over-the-counter medication can help making the pain more bearable, but it’s not going to solve the cause of the problem.
If the condition is caused by the pinching of a nerve, it can have an aggressive evolution, going to the impossibility to walk or even to paralysis. This is why it is important to set an appointment with your doctor in order to have your situation assessed and your condition properly diagnosed and treated.
As a general rule, any back pain that goes away within a few days with or without analgesics is classified as acute. If the pain persists for more than a few months, it is considered chronic and it should be thoroughly investigated in order to determine its causes.
This is not an easy task. It should be performed by a health care professional, as its result will determine the type of treatment that needs to be followed.
Had a ruptured disc from a car accident this summer that I have been having issues with pain wise. Dr. Dar’s quick service for cortisone shots to help manage the pain has been a lifesaver! Highly recommend.
I am so appreciative of Dr. Dar and his staff. I can see how busy he is, but even so he still takes his time during my appointment to explain what he can do to help me with my lower back pain. Thank you Dr. Dar!
Dr. Dar and his staff were very professional and genuinely cared about my comfort and pain management when I was suffering from awful back pain. I really appreciate what they did for me. I finally have my life back and am able to function because of them. Thank you so much Dr. Dar!
I was referred by Dr. Homero Rodriguez to come and see Dr. Urfan Dar. I used to be a U.S. paratrooper, and after I hurt myself my lower back pain was so terrible that I couldn’t sleep at night. Dr. Dar is so good that I’ve been coming to him since 2002 . Dr. Dar pays attention to me when I tell him where I am hurting, and then takes care of the pain. He’s the best.
I struggled for years to find someone who could help me with my Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome pain. P.A. Watson actually listened to me and has been working diligently to ease my pain ever since. I would highly recommend you go see him!!!
Dr Bengali is wonderful! I had my first C-sp epidural injection, he said it could take up to five days to feel relief. I was having a pain of 7 walking and after I woke up my pain went dramatically down to a 2. I had instant relief. I couldn’t believe it. I was so happy with his team and the results. Thanks Dr. Bengali!
I have always had a good experience with the doctors, PA’s, and staff in the office. Their caring attitude towards their patients stands out. Another doctor I go to recommended them to me, and I’m glad she did. I’ve had issues with previous pain management offices: lack of caring, feeling like just another patient, rude behavior, extremely long waiting periods to see the doctor, and issues getting prescriptions. I highly recommend Tri-City pain management for issues you may have with chronic pain.
The whole staff is very nice & very friendly! They treat you really well and with respect, the atmosphere is great. Dr. Dar is great, thank you very much!
I was initially referred to Dr.Tong and I have to say, I was nervous. Well Dr. Tong surprised me, he is the best! He his honest and caring. The girls in the front are friendly also. I will be telling everyone about him, and thank you for helping me.
