Low back pain affects millions of people and has become increasingly prevalent due to our modern sedentary lifestyle, which involves extended periods of sitting at a computer without proper lumbar support. At Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, we strive to comprehend our patients’ physical conditions so that we can provide effective relief for their low back pain as soon as possible. We believe in taking a holistic approach to pain management and devising tailored treatment plans that can have a positive impact on the lives of those we serve.
What might be the cause of my low back pain?
During your low back pain treatment at Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, your physician will conduct a thorough assessment of your symptoms and conduct a physical examination to identify the possible cause of your discomfort. There are numerous conditions that can cause lumbar spine pain. Common sources of lower back pain and inflammation include arthritis, sciatica, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, scoliosis or kyphosis, fibromyalgia, and spondylolysis. Straining your back during physical activity can also cause pain that may be relieved with rest and medication to reduce inflammation. However, if your pain persists, seeking guidance from an experienced doctor can help determine the source of your discomfort and lead to effective treatment.
Which treatment options are available for compression fractures?
As people age, their bones may become brittle or thin, making them more susceptible to spinal compression fractures, which can occur during normal daily activities. For those with severe osteoporosis, which is more common in older women, compression fractures can happen even with minimal movements. Compression fractures can cause back pain that worsens gradually over time, reduced mobility, and a decrease in height. CT scans, x-rays, or MRI imaging are commonly used to diagnose these fractures. If left untreated, compression fractures can cause nerve damage, leading to muscle weakness, tingling, or difficulty controlling certain bodily functions. Sacroplasty, vertebroplasty, and kyphoplasty are minimally invasive surgical procedures that can repair compression fractures, reducing pain and increasing height. If you have osteoporosis, it is important to treat this condition to prevent worsening compression fractures or new ones from forming in the future.
Is it safe to receive spinal injections?
Targeted corticosteroid injections are an effective means of reducing pain and inflammation that contribute to lower back pain. These injections can be especially helpful for patients who need to alleviate their pain and improve mobility in order to benefit from a physical therapy program. Generally, spinal injections are considered to be safe, particularly when administered by a skilled physician. The most common risks associated with spinal injections are bleeding, redness, or bruising at the injection site. Headaches may also occur due to the needle puncture. Although rare, nerve damage may occur. At Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, we prioritize patient safety by utilizing precise imaging technology to guide our physicians during injection administration.
