Pain Q & A

What is the cause of pain?

Pain in your back, hips, neck, or joints (including your elbows, shoulders, and knees), can be a sign of an injury or degenerative problem. Some of the most common causes of acute and chronic pain include:

  • Sports injuries, such as tennis elbow, strains, and sprains
  • Traumatic injury, including a car accident
  • Personal injuries, like a slip and fall
  • Bone breaks or stress fractures
  • Being overweight
  • Improper lifting
  • Arthritis and gout

No matter the cause of your pain, one thing’s for certain: You need relief. Plus, because ignoring pain may only cause the underlying condition to worsen, it’s important to find out why you have pain and get started on treatment.

How is the cause of pain diagnosed?

Trusted Medical Centers - Mansfield has an advanced, full-service radiology department right in the hospital, as well as a laboratory, so your dedicated physician can usually diagnose you on the spot. Diagnosing the cause of pain can include:

  • X-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans, or MRIs
  • Orthopedic evaluation
  • Blood testing

Once your orthopedic specialist gets to the root of your pain, they sit and talk with you about all of your treatment options, so you can work together to determine what’s best for you.
