The Best Conservative Treatments For Lower Back Pain NY

Struggling with back pain? We can help! We have rfa treatment for lower back pain NY and other conservative treatments to help you avoid unnecessary back surgery.

What is RFA treatment for lower back pain NY? Radiofrequency ablation rfa treatment is one of the latest techniques in regenerative medicine to treat pain without surgical intervention. It is a minimally invasive procedure that maximizes health and boasts fast recovery times and effective treatment outcomes without the need for surgery.

There are many reasons to consider conservative treatment options for acute and chronic low back pain. Recently, many orthopedic surgeons have been relying on surgery and extensive use of narcotics in order to treat lower back pain. However, surgery is not an option that should be taken lightly. There are many risks involved when undergoing surgical procedures for lower back pain. Some risks include:

  • Blood clots
  • Blood pressure problems
  • Issues/ allergic reactions to anesthesia
  • Lengthy recovery periods
  • Post-operative infections

In addition, relying heavily on opioids and NSAIDs can have negative health consequences. The United States is undergoing an opioid epidemic due to the addictive nature of using opioids to treat pain.

Due to these risks, it is important to consider the latest conservative treatments that are provided by Board Certified pain doctors. Pain doctors are leaders in pain medicine and have extensive knowledge and experience in delivering high-quality conservative treatments that are minimally invasive and maximally effective. A pain doctor will be able to why your back pain symptoms exist and how best it can be treated. Let’s take a look at some examples of the best treatments for lower back pain in NY.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency Ablation rfa treatment is an excellent treatment choice because it facilitates long-term pain relief that can last between 6 – 8 months. It also does not rely on the use of steroids. Instead, it focuses on utilising heat energy to directly target the nerve endings responsible for the lower back pain.

Coolief Sinergy Sacroiliac Cooled RF

This is one of the most recent rfa treatments currently available. It is based on the principle of denerving the sacroiliac joints via cooling technology. As a highly effective treatment option, coolief will help to reduce inflammation and provide lasting pain relief in a safe and minimally invasive way.

Lumbar Epidural

Lumbar epidural injections are a popular treatment. This describes when a pain doctor injects a combination of local anesthetic and a corticosteroid (anti-inflammatory) drug into the area of pain. This is a great treatment for targeting lower back and leg pain.

Lumbar Facet Injection

This is when a pain doctor administers local anesthetic along various points of the spine. Pain relief is then provided to several areas in the spinal vertebra.

Sacroiliac Joint Injection

An SJ injection is a beneficial treatment choice because it can alleviate pain whilst also helping your doctor to establish why you are experiencing pain. During this procedure, a pain doctor uses X-Ray guidance to ensure they have localized pain in the correct area. They will then administer local anesthesia via injection to check if they have targeted the correct area. If the anesthetic works, it confirms that the back pain is due to a problem with the sacroiliac joint. Once this has been established, the pain doctor will then inject a corticosteroid drug directly into the area of pain to reduce inflammation and provide instant pain relief.

Back Pain Causes

There are many different underlying medical conditions that can be the culprit behind your back pain. That’s why it’s important to seek medical advice from a Board Certified pain doctor. Let’s take a look at some of the most common back pain causes.

Facet Joint Pain Syndrome/Dysfunction

This syndrome can occur when your weight may move unevenly onto facet joints. This change can be due to degenerative modifications, such as arthritis. As time progresses, the prolonged uneven weight distribution can cause wear and tear of the facet joints. Due to this, your cartilage may not be rubbery or slippery anymore and bone spurs may form. The inability of your joints to move smoothly over one another can cause friction and pain.

Lumbar Herniated Disc

This occurs in the lower back and neck and can be responsible for feeling increasing levels of back and neck pain. Your spine has discs along each point which creates spacing between each bone of the spine. The discs have a tough outer layer and a soft, jelly-like inner layer. If jelly-like substance leaks out of the inner layer and into the outer layer, it can aggravate the surrounding nerves. This can cause a great deal of pain and discomfort.

Sacroiliac Joint Pain/Dysfunction

Wear and tear or repetitive movement of the joints at the bottom of the spine to the hip bone can cause sacroiliac joint pain/ dysfunction. The excessive and/ or repetitive movements can cause inflamed ligaments and create subsequent pain.

Spinal Osteoarthritis

This is a common degenerative condition that can impact many different areas of the spine. It occurs as a result of cartilage wearing down and therefore exposing the bones to one another without a lubricated surface. The inability of bones to glide over one another causes friction, bony spurs and inflammation.

Spondylothesis

Spondylothesis is when one of the 33 bones of the spinal column slip or slide out of place. This can cause a great deal of lumbar pain.
