According to research, up to 80 percent of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. The spine is comprised of many delicate, interconnected pieces, subjecting it to numerous different types of injuries. Back issues can cause several different symptoms, including referred pain, discomfort in the extremities, trouble sleeping and stress reactions, among others. Unfortunately for many who suffer from back pain, the source of the irritation almost always goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. An accurate diagnosis and proper treatment are crucial components of back pain relief. This can also help prevent recurring issues from surfacing in the future. The providers at Austin Preferred take an integrated approach to back pain relief in Austin, using multiple modalities to help patients find relief.
The goal of our approach is to relieve pain while restoring health and function to the body, rather than recommending surgery or prescription drugs. Each new patient will first come in for a thorough initial evaluation before receiving a customized treatment plan. Because every case is different, we use a wide array of techniques to treat back pain. This allows our providers to create truly personalized plans of care, unique to each patient’s needs. We typically use a combination of the following modalities to treat back/spinal complaints:
Health insurance covers many of the treatment options for back pain, although some are only available at our self-pay rates. Our providers are typically willing to accommodate patients with specific requests and we offer free consultations for some services as well.

Q: What causes back pain?
A: Because the back is comprised of many parts — including vertebrae, discs, ligaments, and muscles — back pain can stem from acute injuries, overuse injuries, degenerative conditions, and referred pain from other issues.
Q: Does health insurance cover treatment for back pain relief in Austin?
A: Health insurance covers many treatment options for back pain relief, while some are only available at our self-pay rates.
Q: How long does it take for back pain to go away?
A: While back pain sometimes subsides on its own within a few weeks, some cases can take much longer to heal. It is for this reason that we recommended a regimented treatment program for back pain relief.
