An Effective Treatment Begins With an Accurate Diagnosis
Before we can chart a path toward relieving your pain, our team must arrive at a diagnosis. Back pain may be debilitating, but it is a symptom, not a condition. We utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to determine why you suffer from pain daily. We can use x-rays, MRIs, bone scans, and CT scans to determine what ails you. One of the reasons we use such a broad array of diagnostic tools is the causes of back pain range widely. For instance, your chronic pain could be the result of muscle strains, a tumor, disc disease, and more.
Physical Therapy Is Often The Most Effective Treatment
Fortunately for our patients, there are numerous ways to treat back and neck conditions beyond surgery. Usually, we will begin treating you with physical therapy. It helps increase flexibility and strengthens the core muscles. We utilize a technique called passive physical therapy, or modalities. Other methods include heat and ice packs, a TENS unit, and ultrasound treatment. Additionally, our team can order active physical therapy.
Injections Can Work Wonders Against Back Pain
We can use spinal injections as a combination to physical therapy. Spinal injections is highly effective at alleviating chronic back pain. Epidural injection along with anesthetics provides long-lasting steroids. This combination reduces the frequency and intensity of back pain. No matter what we choose, you can be certain we will provide top notch treatment.
