Whether it’s due to a strained muscle, sciatica, or bulging disc, back pain is uncomfortable and often debilitating. Mild back pain can usually be relieved with over-the-counter pain medication, but acute or chronic back pain needs more advanced diagnosis and treatment options. It’s critical to know what is causing your back pain so it can be managed and treated effectively.
TREATMENTS FOR BACK PAIN
If acute or chronic back pain is disrupting your ability to do the things you love, it is time to talk to a doctor. There are many effective treatment options available to relieve your back pain.
Basivertebral Nerve Ablation (The Intracept Procedure)
is a minimally invasive treatment for chronic low back pain due to degenerative disc disease that blocks pain signals coming from the disc and vertebrae.
Epidural steroid injection
involves injection of a steroid medication using an x-ray around the spinal discs and nerves to reduce pain and inflammation while increasing function and mobility.
Facet Block/Medial Branch Nerve Block
is a diagnostic procedure to determine if a patient’s neck or back pain is coming from the facet joints or arthritis. It is used primarily to determine if a patient is a candidate for radiofrequency ablation, but it itself can also provide long-term relief. It involves injecting a numbing agent using an x-ray into or around the facet joints.
delivery of an anesthetic drug intravenously to block the NMDA receptors to “reboot” pain receptors that are functioning abnormally in chronic pain syndromes. It is also used for depression.
are a form of neuromodulation where medication is delivered directly into the spinal fluid and to the spinal cord.
Peripheral Nerve Stimulationa
is a form of neurostimulation that uses low-voltage electrical current to block or weaken pain signals by placing electrodes next to peripheral nerves in the extremities.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
use a patient’s own blood to stimulate the healing of injured muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments.
Radiofrequency Ablation (Rhizotomy)
reduces pain by using electrical signals to prevent nerves from transmitting pain signals. This is most commonly used for the treatment of arthritis of the neck or low back, and also hip or knee pain.
Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Fusion
is a minimally invasive procedure that stabilizes the sacroiliac joint to relieve pain.
Spinal Cord Stimulation
is a form of neurostimulation used to treat pain affecting the back, arms, or legs. It involves placing electrodes next to the spinal cord and using electrical signals to block pain signals.
