Treatment for back pain

Treatment for lower back pain depends upon the patient’s history and the type and severity of pain. The majority of lower back pain cases get better within six weeks without surgery.

Examples of conservative treatment includes:
– Rest, Ice and or heat
– Exercise, Physical Therapy and Chiropractic treatment
– Medications (OTC or prescribed)

If you continue to have pain despite conservative treatment and you have any of the following diagnoses, we can offer you minimally invasive treatment options:
– Low back pain
– Sciatica
– Spondylolisthesis
– Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
– Spinal Stenosis
– Degenerative Disc Disease
– Lumbar Facet Arthrosis
– Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

Treatment for the above conditions include:
– Lumbar Epidural (Translaminar vs. Transforaminal)
– Lumbar Facet Injections
– Dorsal Column Stimulator Therapy
– SI Joint Injections
– Radio Frequency Ablation (For Facet and SI joint problems)
– Laser Therapy

A facet rhizotomy injection is a minimally invasive procedure that attempts to relieve neck or back pain associated with facet disease by using an electrical current to ablate local nerve fibers that carry pain signals from the affected joint to the brain. This is performed as a same day, outpatient procedure.
