Most adults experience low back pain at least once in their lives. Treatment depends on the cause of the back pain and where it's located along the spine.
Doctors who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation, known as physiatrists, have advanced training in diagnosing and treating problems that affect the muscles, bones and joints, as well as the nervous system. They help patients recover from a variety of conditions including low back and neck pain.
Physiatrists take a holistic approach, looking at the entire person, not just a problem area. They conduct physical exams, prescribe therapies, and develop treatment plans. They often work as part of a team with other doctors and care providers, and in some cases coordinate your medical care.
While physiatrists treat problems affecting any part of the body, their main goal is to improve your quality of life. They work with you and your loved ones to restore your body - and your life - as much as possible.
