Musculoskeletal Pain Problems
Musculoskeletal pain problems are among the most common pain problems and may include low back pain, neck pain, shoulder and arm pain, hip and knee pain, and hand and foot pain and dysfunction.
Low back pain has been referred to as “the most expensive benign condition in America.” The annual costs of back pain have been estimated to exceed $190 billion! Studies have shown that 40%-80% of patients with low back pain experience recurrences of their pain. Many patients with musculoskeletal pain problems at Pain and Rehabilitation Medicine have been seen by a variety of other doctors, therapists and other health care providers. We provide a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment approach not just for low back pain, but also for other musculoskeletal pain problems.
