Back pain can be a symptom of many different illnesses and conditions. The main cause of the pain can be a problem with the back itself or by a problem in another part of the body. In many cases, doctors can’t find a cause for the pain. When a cause is found, common explanations include:

Stress or injury involving the back muscles, including back sprain or strain; chronic overload of back muscles caused by obesity; and short term overload of back muscles caused by any unusual stress, such as lifting or pregnancy

Disease or injury involving the back bones (vertebrae), including fracture from an accident or as a result of the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis

Degenerative arthritis, a “wear and tear” process that may be related to age, injury and genetic predisposition.

Disease or injury involving the spinal nerves, including nerve injury caused by a protruding disk (a fibrous cushion between vertebrae) or spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the spinal canal)

New Technology for Chronic Pain Suffers

Administering ultrasound guided joint, tendon, muscle and cartilage  injections, is a non-invasive, non-ionizing interventional pain management modality that’s gaining popularity. The option provides direct visualization of soft tissues while offering real-time needle advancements without the risks of radiation. Doctors can diagnose soft tissue areas impacted by pain as they are administering steroid, platelet rich plasma, and stem cell injections. This diagnostic ability allows the provider to target the pain with greater precision. Ultrasound guided joint, tendon, muscle and cartilage injections offer an easier and more effective way to free patients from pain.

*Treatment options range from less invasive procedures such as Platelet Rich Plasma Injections, to more complex procedures such as Kyphoplasty, Percutaneous Disc Decompression, Spinal Cord Stimulators, and Programmable drug delivery system therapy. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

People Say

I have been a patient at Integrated Pain for several years and I couldn't be happier with my experience. Every time you couldn't ask for a friendlier, warmer staff, who genuinely cares for your well-being. I never thought I would be able to get my chronic pain under control, but Dr. Smith has managed, what I thought, was impossible. My day to day well-being has improved tremendously, thanks to Dr. Smith and the Integrated Pain staff. Thank you !!!
