Low back pain is a common source of discomfort for millions of people. As our daily lives increasingly necessitate sitting at a computer for long hours, many of us have developed pain in our low back as a result of improper lumbar support. At Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, we focus on understanding our patients’ bodies, so we can deliver positive improvement of their low back discomfort as quickly as possible. We believe in taking a comprehensive approach to pain management and developing targeted, customized treatment protocols that can positively impact the lives of those we treat.
What is causing my low back pain?
When you visit Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine for low back pain treatment, your doctor will begin with an in-depth discussion of your symptoms and a physical examination of your body. This will help them understand what might be causing your low back pain. There are many conditions that can cause pain in the lumbar spine. Low back pain may stem from arthritis conditions, sciatica, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, scoliosis or kyphosis, as well as fibromyalgia and spondylolysis, which are all common causes of lower back pain and inflammation. Straining your back during physical activity can also cause pain that may dissipate with rest and medication to reduce inflammation, but if you experience pain that does not go away, a consultation with an experienced doctor can help identify the source of your pain, so you can reap the benefits of effective treatment.
What treatments are available if I have a compression fracture?
For older adults whose bones may be brittle or thin, spinal compression fractures can accumulate as you continue to perform normal daily tasks. Especially for those with severe osteoporosis, which is most common in older women, compression fractures can occur as a result of even small movements. Spinal compression fractures can cause back pain that worsens gradually over time, reduced mobility, and even a decrease in height. These fractures are typically diagnosed by CT scan, x-ray, or MRI imaging. If compression fractures are not addressed, they can lead to nerve damage that could result in weak muscles, tingling, or even difficulty controlling certain bodily functions. Sacroplasty, vertebroplasty, and kyphoplasty all offer minimally invasive surgical repair of compression fractures, so you can stand taller with less pain. If you have osteoporosis, it is essential that you take steps to treat this condition in order to avoid worsening compression fractures or developing new ones in the future.
Are spinal injections safe?
Targeted corticosteroid injections can effectively relieve pain and inflammation that is contributing to your lower back pain. These injections can often be a beneficial treatment for patients who need to relieve pain and improve mobility in order to maximize the results of a physical therapy regimen. Spinal injections are generally very safe, especially when conducted by an experienced doctor. The most common risks include bleeding, redness, or bruising at the injection site. You may also experience a headache caused from the insertion of the needle puncture. Very rarely, nerve damage can occur. At Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, we prioritize the safety of our patients by using precise imaging technology to effectively guide our physicians as they administer your injections.
