Back Pain Therapy in Chesapeake, VA

Whatever treatment you decide to pursue for back pain it is important that the doctor you see take a thorough history of your pain and symptoms, do functional exams to clinically correlate your pain and then order imaging to confirm or rule out the suspected cause of your pain.

The order should be:

  1. HISTORY/COMPLAINTS
  2. FUNCTIONAL/STRUCTURAL EXAM
  3. IMAGING based on what is suspected to be the problem.

This ABC approach is what leads to an accurate diagnosis. Treatment options should only be considered after an accurate diagnosis is obtained, not based on just A or B or a guess. Causes of back pain can vary: disc, nerve root compression, spinal cord/cauda equina compression, facet/joint pain, altered biomechanics and muscular just to name a few. Treatment options vary depending on the diagnosis but most spinal pain options follow this general order from CONSERVATIVE to INVASIVE care. The goal of any treatment program should be the OUTCOME for the patient … pain reduced and functional quality of life restored with minimized risk.

Studies have demonstrated up to 80% of back pain due to a MECHANICAL problem with the spine. Dr. Packer is credentialed in Spinal Biomechanical Engineering and specializes in clinically correlating your functional exams to image analysis for mechanical causes of back pain.
