back pain


  • Most individuals will experience back pain at least once during their lives

Diagnostic tests are not usually necessary to confirm the cause of your back pain, however a physical examination will be completed by a physician to assess your pain, flexibility, and range of motion. If your physician suspects that there is a reason to determine the specific cause of your back pain, an X-ray, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), or a Bone Scan may be ordered. There is a chance, however, that these tests may not determine the cause of your back pain. Furthermore, back pain can be treated and improve even if the specific cause is unknown.


Back pain often develops without a specific cause. The majority of individuals develop back pain due to poor habits. These poor habits include:

  • Poor Posture
  • Lifting, pushing, or pulling objects incorrectly
  • Overexertion

Conditions commonly associated with back pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Ruptured or bulging disc
  • Ligament or muscle strain
  • Skeletal irregularities


Treatment will depend on the type of back pain. Common treatment options for back pain include:

  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
  • Acupuncture
  • Cortisone Shots
  • Anti-inflammatory medications note: medications should be taken as directed by your doctor
  • Spinal Fusion

This is my first review that I have written, but I really wanted to help those of you seeking a skilled, compassionate and professional pain management practice. I highly recommend Pinnacle Pain and Spine to anyone seeking pain treatment in this area. I have been to 3 other pain management Dr's in the past and none of them have given me the type of relief that I get from Dr Crook's treatment. He actually listens to my symptoms and reviews my past history. This has helped him to formulate a treatment plan that gives me the most benefit. His compassion and "down to earth" attitude also makes Dr. Crooks very approachable. He answers my questions in a way that I actually understand. As a result, I always have a clear understanding of my treatment plan and feel confident in his ability. I also trust that Dr. Crooks has my best interests and health in mind when he makes recommendations. His staff is also wonderful, they are very professional and friendly. They always attempt to accommodate my schedule, which is so helpful to a working mom. I truly hope that if you are reading this and are in need of pain relief that you meet with Dr. Crooks. I know that Dr. Crooks and his staff will do everything they can to help their patients reduce their level of pain and improve their quality of life.

As to efficacy and skill, Dr. Crooks is your coup de grace, the mother lode, and what every physician should aspire to. In other words, without any serious hyperbole, he is the real deal and the embodiment of almost every patients hope, because when he looks at something for the very first time, he really sees it with an unsorted lens (baby eyes): free from any preconceived notions. Furthermore, he’s mature and has this unique and uncanny ability to drill down to the root cause of your malaise…making each and every moment with him an expansive rewarding experience in and of itself.
