Dr. Kraus, the premier Houston back pain doctor, will take your history to determine when the pain began, where it travels, the nature of the pain (shooting, stabbing, burning, etc.) and what makes it better or worse. This is followed by a physical exam and confirmed by detailed MRI or CT scans of the spine. Only after diagnosis of the condition causing pain, can treatment begin.
