Orthopedic Spine Specialists in Arlington

Back pain can be a result of many issues, and mild or occassional back pain can often be treated at home with rest, ice, heat or over the counter anti-inflammatories. But if your back pain becomes severe, frequent or constant, you should call for an appointment with an orthopedic spine specialist at Medical City Arlington.

You should speak with a back and neck specialist if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Back pain when standing, walking or lying down
  • Intense pain, burning or grinding in your back
  • Inability to carry weight
  • Pain, soreness or reduced range of motion in your back immediately following or the day after a long walk
  • Inability to stand or walk for more than a few minutes
  • Sudden swelling on or near your spine
  • Signs of infection, such as fever, chills or redness, accompanied by back pain
