For many people, back and neck pain will pass in a few days - especially when the injury (or "tweak") is rather minor or triggered by a relatively infrequent activity (e.g., shoveling the snow from your driveway).
However, there are times when a workplace incident, car accident or other injury is severe enough to affect a person's ability to live the life that they knew before pain and injury.
People who are more athletic, for example, may find it difficult to return to what they consider 100%, even if they're able to regain a full range of motion as defined by "normal standards." Likewise, people whose occupation requires a certain repetitive motion may find that they continue to experience pain, and even exacerbate (or aggravate) their injury.
If you're experiencing neck pain, stiffness, loss of normal range of motion, spasms, pain radiating to back of head, ear or shoulders, painful range of motion, tingling numbness, "pins & needles," low back pain, muscle pain with specific trigger or tender points, it's a good idea to speak with a board-certified physician—before the condition gets worse.
If the pain and/or limited motion persists for more than three months, it's considered chronic and you should consult with a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) specialist right away.
Physiatrists are uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal pain and injury because it's the focus of their education and training.
Physiatrists complete four years of medical school, plus an additional four years of residency training, and many go on to complete fellowships in various specialties. In order to become a board-certified physiatrist, physicians must then pass comprehensive tests (oral and written) administered by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPM&R) or the American Osteopathic Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AOBPM&R).
Physiatrists will assess your condition, needs and expectations thoroughly and develop a tailor-made treatment regimen.
