Lower Back Pain Treatment for Patients in Hampton, Newport News, Williamsburg & Surrounding VA Areas

Recent research suggests that lower back pain treatment may be necessary for up to 80 percent of people at some point during their lives. An accurate diagnosis of the underlying cause is key to finding effective treatment and lasting relief. However, many patients seek treatment for spinal conditions that result from aging, overuse, or injury without knowing the true source of the problem. Patients from Hampton, Williamsburg, and Newport News, Virginia, who need answers – and relief – can turn to Tidewater Orthopaedics. Our fellowship-trained spine specialist, Dr. Jonathan Mason, provides comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for back pain.

Lower back pain can be caused by acute injuries resulting from trauma to the spine, which can occur in car accidents, falls, and other events involving high impact forces. More often, though, back pain is related to spinal degeneration that takes place along with the natural aging process. These degenerative effects can also be accelerated through overuse and repetitive movements performed over time.

The precise nature of low back pain will depend on the type of injury and the spinal tissues involved, and can vary widely from a sharp, pinpoint pain that occurs with specific movements to a consistent, dull ache. Consult Dr. Mason at Tidewater Orthopaedics in Hampton Roads about lower back pain treatment for these or any of the following symptoms:

  • Shooting pains that travel from the lower back down through the legs
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Muscle weakness
  • Stiffness or tightness with waking up in the morning
  • Increased pain while sitting or rising from a seated position
  • Bowel or bladder problems

Dr. Mason provides a wide range of treatment options for low back pain, and most patients are able to find effective relief through one or more non-surgical approaches, such as medications, physical therapy, and injections. And, if surgery is required, Dr. Mason performs advanced, minimally invasive techniques to help patients resume their active lifestyles quickly and safely.

Dr. Mason is available at Tidewater Orthopaedics in Hampton and Williamsburg, VA, to provide consultations about lower back pain treatment, and we welcome new patients.
