Causes of Back Pain – Anil Kesani, MD

Dr. Anil Kesani explains that back pain can be caused by a wide range of causes.  An orthopedic surgeon based in North Richland Hills, Texas, Dr. Kesani, specializes in minimally invasive spinal surgery and motion-preserving interventions such as disc replacement to spinal problems.

Dr. Anil Kesani makes an effort to inform all his patients about everything related to their treatments, including potential causes of their pain.

Back pain can result from a number reasons, the most common of which is muscle and ligaments becoming strained. This type of back pain is usually treated with physical therapy as well as medications on a case-by-case basis.

Structural problems such as disc injuries and fractures of the spine are another cause for pain. Skeletal irregularities such as growth abnormalities such as vertebral anomalies resulting in deformity can be more difficult to treat, and sometimes require surgery to correct them. However, many successful treatments exist for these conditions as well including bracing.

Other problems that can cause back pain include inflammatory conditions, tumors, and degenerative changes in the spine. Another potential nonsurgical treatment option are spinal injections.  But, the bottom line is that Dr. Anil Kesani, who practices at SpineMD does everything possible to treat patients non surgically to get them better in order to avoid surgery.  Surgery is always reserved as a last resort.
