How Chronic Back Pain Treatment Centers Offer Pain Management

Nov 28, 2019
HARVARD TRAINED PAIN DOCTORS | VOTED #1 PAIN CENTER | PAIN TREATMENT SPECIALISTS

If you live with chronic back pain, then you know that pain management is crucial. Staying ahead of your pain before it cripples your day is the difference between enjoying your day, and dreading your day. Spinal conditions from specific types of back pain make even small movements seem monumental. If you’ve sought the advice of your primary care doctor, that’s a good first step to treat back pain and leg pain. However, a chronic back pain treatment center can provide a more specialized approach to pain management that involves injections of anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as alternative treatments.

At Pain Treatment Specialists, our team of Harvard-educated pain management doctors specializes in pain management techniques for chronic back pain at their chronic back pain treatment centers. Different types of back pain affect each person differently, and our team of caring pain management doctors utilize a variety of pain management treatments at their chronic back pain treatment centers.

What Types of Treatments Do Back Pain Treatments Centers Offer?

In order to treat back pain, chronic back pain treatment centers meet with each patient to determine their specific needs. Chronic back pain may also include leg pain, weakness in the legs while walking, and stiffness and soreness during daily activities. Your pain doctor will determine the type of treatment that can best address your pain concerns at their chronic back pain treatment centers. At Pain Treatment Specialists, some of our minimally-invasive alternative treatments include:

  • Lumbar Epidural: Offered at chronic back pain treatment centers, lumbar epidurals combine a corticosteroid, which is an anti-inflammatory drug, with a local anesthetic. This combination provides instant pain relief for spinal conditions that cause chronic back pain.
  • Lumbar Radiofrequency Ablation: If you experience pain from lumbar facet joint arthritis, lumbar radiofrequency ablation is an excellent pain management technique provided by chronic back pain treatment centers.
  • Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Injection: Located above the tailbone, this pain management treatment reduces inflammation and pain. An x-ray guides the injection into the sacroiliac joint, which also includes a local anesthetic to provide pain relief. Chronic back pain treatment centers provide pain management relief that is guided under expert care.
  • Facet Joint Injections: if you suffer from lower back pain or arthritis, a facet joint injection can provide significant pain relief. This pain management technique involves injecting a small amount of local anesthetic around the nerves of the small joints located along the side of your vertebrae. These are located on each side of the spine on the lower back.
  • Epidural Steroid Injections (ESI): If you suffer from spinal conditions such as spinal stenosis or herniated discs, then an epidural steroid injection reduces pain due to inflamed spinal nerves. Chronic back pain treatment centers are able to pinpoint your specific types of back pain and treat back pain with minimally-invasive treatments.

Chronic back pain treatment centers, such as Pain Treatment Centers, have a variety of pain management techniques to treat your chronic back pain with minimally-invasive methods and anti-inflammatory drugs and injections.

What Can I Do At Home To Treat Chronic Back Pain?

Before you schedule an appointment at chronic back pain treatment centers such as Pain Treatment Specialists, you can still try to address chronic pain concerns. Even at home, you can still alleviate your chronic back pain symptoms. Even though you should seek chronic back pain treatment centers to properly identify your back pain symptoms, here are some at-home remedies to treat chronic back pain.

The RICE method of treating back pain is useful for managing daily pain symptoms. Using the RICE method, each letter stands for:

REST: Do not use or overuse your back more than needed. Bed rest is also a good idea to make sure that you’re properly resting your back.

ICE: In 10-20 minute intervals, ice your back. You can complete this 3 or more times per day to help alleviate swelling. Additionally, you can add a heating pad to help with muscle tension as needed.

COMPRESS: Use an athletic or compression bandage to wrap the affected area to add support and prevent swelling.

ELEVATE: You can combine this with rest, and elevate your lower back above your heart using pillows or blankets. This also helps reduce swelling and inflammation.

Chronic back pain treatment centers utilize cutting-edge back pain treatments, but you can also treat chronic back pain at home with the RICE method. The RICE method is useful for patients looking for chronic back pain relief before they visit chronic back pain treatment centers.

If you’re searching for a “back doctor in NYC” or are unsure of what type of doctor do I see for back pain, look for pain doctors that offer back pain treatments in NYC that do not resort to surgery or narcotics to treat chronic pain.

Why Should I Avoid Surgery and Narcotics?

Chronic back pain treatment centers should first focus on pain management techniques and alternative treatments that do not involve surgery or narcotics. At Pain Treatment Specialists, our team of Harvard-trained pain doctors avoid surgery and dangerous narcotics to treat chronic back pain. If you contact a chronic back pain treatment center, insist that your treatment plan does not involve surgery or narcotics for the following reasons:

  • Infections are common after surgery
  • Surgery is not only painful, but requires a long period of time out of work and off of your feet
  • One surgery might not be enough! Additional surgeries might be required to achieve the desired goal.
  • Over-the-counter narcotics are highly addictive and can unintentionally cause a pain pill problem

When searching for chronic back pain treatment centers, look for a team that utilizes cutting-edge techniques that do not require surgery or addictive narcotics.

Chronic back pain treatment centers offer a wide variety of chronic back pain management techniques to treat your daily pain. Contact the Harvard-trained pain doctors at Pain Treatment Specialists to see how you can wake up with a new outlook… and without back pain.
