Back and Shoulder Pain

Most people will experience lower back pain or shoulder pain at some point in their lives. Often, that type of pain is tolerable and resolves on its own, but when back and shoulder pain is persistent and/or severe, it’s time to seek medical attention.

Back pain with back spasms may be symptoms of a muscle strain or a bulging or ruptured disc. Shoulder pain may occur due to overuse, injury, or a pinched nerve. An accurate diagnosis of the condition causing the pain is the first step toward recovery.

At Center for Pain Management in Indianapolis, we use state-of-the-art diagnostic and imaging equipment, including a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, to pinpoint the causes of back and shoulder pain. Please contact us if you need help for back or shoulder pain: (317) 706-7246.

Causes of Back and Shoulder Pain

Common causes of back and shoulder pain include:

  • Cervical and lumbar radiculopathy (a pinched nerve in the upper or lower spine) 
  • Spondylosis (arthritis of the spine and other degenerative conditions)
  • Scar tissue buildup
  • Acute injury (sprains and strains)
  • Bone spurs on the spine

Generally, non-surgical treatment can minimize or alleviate back and shoulder pain.

Treatment for Back and Shoulder Pain

Center for Pain Management may use a combination of treatments for back and shoulder pain, such as nerve blocks, spinal cord stimulators, steroid injections, and physical therapy.
