Our doctors and staff take the time to first determine the cause of your low back pain and then determine the appropriate treatment that can help you. Our individualized treatment plans are designed for each patient and may consist of spinal adjustments, electric muscle therapies, massage therapies, exercise rehab, nutritional counseling, ergonomic counseling, laser therapies and/or acupuncture. The amount of time needed for care before return to daily living activities depends on the severity of the injuries, and the patients overall health prior to the injury.
Traditional medical care for back injuries usually consists of prescription medicines for pain and to relax the back muscles. A physical therapist is often consulted for an exercise rehab program. Sometimes corticosteroid injections are recommended. If these approaches aren’t successful at resolving pain, the patient is referred for a surgical consult. Unfortunately, many times simply relaxing the muscles is not effective and surgery effectiveness varies greatly.
Surgery is often successful at resolving back pain, but comes with significant side effects and down time. There is always a risk with anesthesia, and carries the possibility that the surgery will not fully resolve the back injury. Most patients would agree that resolving their back pain without needing to undergo surgery is optimal.
