The spine and back care specialists at Yuma Regional Medical Center are experts in treating back pain brought on by conditions such as sciatica, arthritis, stenosis, disc diseases, injuries and other spinal conditions.
The spine bears the full load of the body’s weight and daily movement, and the constant repetitive movement can wear on the spine. There are certain factors that make the spine more susceptible to injury, such as poor posture, stress, smoking, weakened muscles and being overweight. Back pain can be caused not only by injury from an accident or fall, but also from heavy and improper lifting, sudden turning or twisting of the body, or even simple movements.
Don’t ignore your back pain-it means something is wrong and may require the care of one of our specialists.
