Low Back Pain Treatment
The lumbar spine and supporting musculoskeletal system are vulnerable to strain, injury and deterioration. Lifting, bending or twisting can cause injury to the spine or soft issues, while aging causes wear and tear on the facet joints, vertebrae and discs. Lower back pain is a common problem, both in acute and chronic forms. At Caliber Pain™, we accurately diagnose the cause of lumbar back issues and offer effective lower back pain treatment at our facility in Midtown Manhattan.
There are a wide variety of injuries, spine disorders and musculoskeletal conditions that cause low back pain. Soft tissue injuries are common from strain during lifting and other activities, but they can be addressed with conservative treatments, like rest, physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medications. Lumbar spine issues can be a source of chronic pain, but many different conditions can cause similar symptoms. Some spinal issues that can cause chronic lower back pain include:
- Spinal compression fractures
- Herniated discs
- Spondylosis, or spinal osteoarthritis
- Spinal stenosis
- Lumbar radiculopathy (sciatica)
- Facet pain syndrome
Imaging through x-rays or MRIs is often not enough to determine the cause of low back pain. While imaging can identify damage to discs, vertebrae and facet joints, it does not pinpoint the cause of pain. At Caliber Pain™, we use advanced diagnostic tools to determine the source of pain and determine the best treatment strategy.
Relief from Chronic Back Pain
Identifying the source of pain is the first step. In many cases, our pain specialists can perform diagnosis and interventional pain treatment the same day to offer low back pain relief for our patients. Injection therapy can reduce inflammation and promote healing, along with other treatments like physical therapy, acupuncture, spinal cord stimulation and ketamine infusions. Each patient receives a personalized treatment plan to address their unique concerns and improve their mobility.
