Chronic Back Pain

Chronic back pain has multiple causes.  Often these patients are placed on narcotic medications to treat chronic back pain.  Other common options offered to chronic back pain sufferers include low back surgery.  Regrettably, both of these options used to treat chronic back pain can often make the problem worse.  Again, finding a specific cause of the chronic back pain is an important part of planning treatment.  For example, chronic back pain due to a disc bulge pressing on a nerve or the dura can often be treated sucessfully with a stem cell injection into the disc.  Other treatment options for chronic back pain include epidural steroid injections, facet injections, trigger point injections, prolotherapy, and physical therapy.
