Spine, Orthopedics and Rehabilitation offers abdominal pain treatment to the residents of Melbourne, Titusville, Palm Bay, and the surrounding communities in Florida. Abdominal pain is most often associated with digestive issues, but it may also be a sign that you need our conservative, non-surgical treatments.
What is Abdominal Pain?
When you have abdominal pain, your first thought may be to review everything that you have eaten in the last 24 hours. Digestive problems certainly do cause dull and sharp pains in the abdominal area, but if the pain persists, you may have a neuromuscular condition. These types of conditions are chronic in nature and do not resolve or improve without treatment. Symptoms of neuromuscular abdominal pain are:
- Tense abdominal muscles
- Sharp, acute pain or persistent aching or throbbing
- Pain with certain movements
- Discomfort when lying down, standing or sitting
What Causes Abdominal Pain?
Abdominal pain of the neuromuscular nature is typically caused by a pinched or injured nerve. You may notice pain that is localized or that radiates into the chest or pelvic region. The most common causes of abdominal pain are myofascial irritation and irritation of the subcutaneous nerve root. You may also have a hernia, rectal disorders, or endometriosis.

- Diagnostic and lab testing onsite to provide an accurate diagnosis

What Should I Expect from My Abdominal Pain Treatment?
