Why does my back hurt?

When something in your back doesn’t feel right, it’s your body’s way of signaling that there’s a problem with your spine’s complex system of bones, nerves, connective tissues and muscles.

Common causes of back pain

When back pain keeps you from doing your job, getting a good night’s sleep, going on that dream vacation, or playing with your grandkids, it’s time to see a back doctor.

At OrthoIndy, we treat a wide variety of spine-related injuries and conditions, including:

Treating your back pain

Every patient is unique. After our spine team’s experts make an accurate diagnosis of what’s causing your back pain, we’ll create an individualized treatment plan to help you heal and feel stronger.

Most of the time, getting rid of debilitating back pain doesn’t require surgery to help you start to feel better. At OrthoIndy, your needs are always at the center of our approach. Your doctor will work with you, considering your goals and lifestyle needs. 

See what to expect during the diagnosis and treatment process when you see a doctor for back pain.

Then, we’ll develop a back pain treatment plan designed to help you get normal back—whatever your normal looks like—using proven, non-surgical treatment options and non-invasive interventional procedures, including: 

  • Physical therapy
  • Medications
  • Braces
  • Injections
  • Nutrition guidance

If non-surgical treatments fail to provide back pain relief, your spine specialist may recommend back surgery.

Schedule a risk-free consultation

Spine surgery isn’t for everyone. In fact, 90% of patients don’t actually need spine surgery to get back to normal. 

If you’ve seen a back doctor elsewhere who recommends spine surgery, make sure your diagnosis is correct before saying yes or no. Make an appointment with an OrthoIndy spine specialist and find out what’s really going on back there.
