Every day, our backs are under a lot of strain. From lifting to sitting, our backs affect almost everything we do. When we have poor posture, our backs can start aching and lead to worse problems. Back pain can manifest in many different ways, from low back pain to upper back and neck pain.

What kind of doctor should I see for back pain?

As back pain can occur in many different forms, there are several different professions to treat back pain.

Chiropractor — Probably the first profession to come to mind when thinking about back pain, chiropractors perform adjustments and physically manipulate the back to facilitate healing and promote proper function.

Physical Therapist — These professionals work with patients to reinstate proper range of motion and mobility. Physical therapists are very hands-on, and implement at-home exercises for the patient to work on. They will analyze the progress at each visit until the end goal is reached.

Massage Therapist — There are many different types of massages, both relaxing and therapeutic. While relaxing massages can provide relief, therapeutic massages get to the root of the problem and are more aimed towards relieving tension, rather than just inducing relaxation. It’s important to note here that a deep tissue therapeutic massage may be uncomfortable at times. However, you will leave feeling much better.

What kind of doctor should I see for back pain and sciatica?

Chiropractor

Chiropractors help to realign the spine to its natural state which will improve the body’s ability to heal itself, rather than having to use invasive or medication-based treatment. Although treatment for sciatica may involve multiple specialists, chiropractic care is a great place to start for finding relief from sciatica symptoms. Chiropractic care will help to reduce or eliminate that pressure with sciatic nerve compression, making chiropractic an effective form of treatment.

Neurologist

Neurologists are experts at understanding and directing treatments for the nervous system. Because sciatica is a nerve-related condition, a neurologist is a go-to specialist to visit when getting to the root of sciatica symptoms.

Interventional Spine Therapist

Some instances of sciatica can be caused by a condition that is outside of the normal range of treatment for chiropractors. Your doctor may recommend interventional spine treatment. This includes epidurals, stimulators, facet injections, radiographic or ultrasonic guidance injections, and more.

Orthopedist

For a small number of sciatica cases, orthopedic surgery may be the best option available for relief. Treatments such as a discectomy or laminectomy both remove the source of the pain of sciatica from tissues creating pressure against the nerves.

When should I see a back specialist?

If your back pain has been persistent for more than a week, it might be time to see a back pain specialist. Additionally, if your back pain is reoccurring, it might be indicative of a deeper problem. In this case, seeing a back pain specialist would be a good decision.
