Seek a Specialist Near Kings Park to Help with Your Back Pain


A problem occurring in any part of your spine can cause back pain.

Many cases of back pain, including severe conditions, dissipate on their own within six weeks. However, we recommend seeking a specialist near Kings Park to help if self-care treatment has not brought improvement or if your back pain:

  • Is constant or intense
  • Spreads down one or both legs
  • Extends below your knee
  • Causes weakness, numbness, or tingling in one or both legs
  • Occurs with unexplained weight loss

If your back pain results from a high-impact automobile accident, sports injury, or bad fall, we recommend seeking immediate care.

The Severity and Cause of Upper Back Pain


Dr. McMonigle has worked with many Kings Park patients to locate upper back pain causes and develop an effective pain relief plan.

Pain in the upper back is a common complaint among most people who experience a minor episode at some point in their lives from sleeping in a strange position or being on their feet too long.

Chronic issues with repeated pain or the onset of pain following a traumatic injury require immediate attention and correct diagnosis to get the proper treatment and necessary relief.

Each case of upper back pain among residents of Kings Park tends to be unique and can result from many different conditions or lifestyle habits. Conditions that commonly cause pain in the back include, but are not limited to:

  • Poor posture
  • Sports injury
  • Work injury from heavy lifting
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Ruptured disks
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Muscle or ligament strain

Dr. McMonigle delivers personalized patient care as a Board-Certified Neurologist in a modern medical facility, working closely to alleviate debilitating symptoms such as pain in the back.

Treatment Options for Back Pain Relief in Kings Park


During your consultation and medical history review, the degree of severity and length of time you have endured the pain may help indicate the cause.

Dr. McMonigle may look at the support structures of the bone or discs in the back to check for any abnormalities placing undue pressure on nearby nerves. Additional testing, such as an EMG, can analyze the reaction times of nerves and muscles to determine if the systems are functioning well or if there may be an underlying problem.

These are a few additional treatments options available to bring about back pain relief to Kings Park patients:

  • Lifestyle changes
  • Physical therapy
  • Pain medication and anti-inflammatories
  • Rest
  • Severe cases may require surgery as the most effective option
