What Treatment Options Are Available For Chronic Back Pain?

Chronic back pain is a mounting public health concern and the second most prevalent cause of disability in the USA.  Adding to the problem is that there’s sometimes little or no indication of the source of the pain, which leads some practitioners to be dismissive of those who suffer from it.

As more knowledge is gained about chronic pain, its physiological and psychological roots and the best ways to manage and treat it, realistic treatment options are answering the need for pain relief and rehabilitation.

The cause of chronic back pain can originate in nerve roots, or it may be provoked by failed back surgery. Whatever the cause, at North Jersey Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Institute, we focus on finding the right therapeutic plan to manage or eliminate it.

Let’s talk about some of the more effective means of treating chronic back pain.

Non-invasive and minimally-invasive options.

Every patient who comes to us with chronic back pain responds differently to the treatment options available.  Sometimes, a combination of therapies can be applied for optimal results.

Non-invasive, conservative treatments are where we always begin.  With an on-site physical therapy suite at your disposal and a team of doctors designing your rehabilitative exercise program, we won’t recommend invasive therapies unless entirely necessary.

Drug therapy is another non-invasive therapeutic tool which can help patients in recovery, but conservative treatments to help you avoid consuming pharmaceuticals is generally preferred.

Minimally-invasive responses to chronic back pain include cortisone and anesthetic injections and minimally-invasive orthopaedic surgical inventions.

Depending on the nature and severity of your chronic back pain, NJOSMI practices a wide range of diverse treatments to address your pain specifically.  You’re not like anyone else and neither will your treatment plan be, when you come to us.

Because we specialize in orthopedics and sports medicine, we treat many patients suffering from chronic back pain.  With the use of conservative and minimally-invasive treatments, our patients routinely enjoy exceptional outcomes and a material reduction in pain.  Sometimes, we’re even able to resolve the problem and send the patient home to a pain-free life.
