Lower Back Pain Treatment in Tampa

Health

Lower back pain is one of the common musculoskeletal complaints and can arise from a number of different ailments. It will often resolve itself within a month, but will usually return if the underlying problem is not dealt with.

At Pain and Wellness Institute, we can definitely solve your low back pain using a variety of procedures:

-Epidural Steroid Injections– ESI involves the injection of steroids into the epidural space inside of the spine. From here, it spreads to other levels and portions of the spine and reduces inflammation and irritation.

-Medial Branch Blocks/Denervation– MBBs are minimally invasive treatments that reduce inflammation and irritation of the facet joint, ultimately relieving pain

-Massage- A massage can be beneficial in reducing stress and tension that might contribute to pain symptoms, and can also help relieve muscle spasm and contractions.

-Nutrition and Exercise- A proper diet accompanied with exercise often reduces the pain associated with sciatica by increasing flexibility and range of motion. This also releases endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain reliever.

Physical Therapy- Physical therapy can be very helpful by building muscles around a degenerated area and reducing pain signals. Physical therapy works best when combined with other modalities.

-Biofeedback- Biofeedback is a treatment that teaches patients to be more in tune with their body and helps them regulate otherwise involuntary processes (such as heart rate or blood pressure). When a patient is more in tune with their body, it is easier for them to relax which can, in turn, alleviate pain.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)– TENS works by introducing electrical stimulation through the skin of the affected area. The electrical signals interrupt pain signals, causing a tingling sensation rather than pain.

Botox- Botox works by paralyzing the nerve ending at the site of injection. Although Botox was originally used for cosmetic purposes, it can also be helpful for pain relief, especially if a patient suffers from whiplash injuries and cervical dystonia. This treatment will reduce pain, and often times increase the range of motion within the affected area.

Trigger Point Injections– These injections are an effective treatment for muscle spasms. The procedure involves the injection of local anesthetic and steroids into a “trigger point”, or the origin of the pain.

Peripheral Nerve Blocks and Radio Frequency Ablation- The nerves that are away from the spinal cord are called peripheral nerves. They can often be sources of pain which can be blocked using a local anesthetic. If a block works, an ablation (destruction of nerve endings) is also a possibility for longer-term pain relief.

-Kyphoplasty and Vertebroplasty– Both of these methods involve injecting acrylic cement into a collapsed vertebra, which relieves pain and increases the stability of the spine.

-Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS)– A spinal cord stimulator is an electrical device that is implanted in the body to decrease pain by confusing the spinal cord and brain pain processing centers. A trial SCS will be externally placed in order to test how effective it will be to a particular patient. If the pain is relieved during a trial period, a permanent Spinal Cord Stimulator will likely bring great back pain relief.

-Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS)-This treatment is similar to a spinal cord stimulator, but here electrodes are placed near affected peripheral nerves instead of directly to the spinal cord.
