Back Pain Relief

December 3, 2008

Back pain relief strats with a specific diagnosis.  You can’t get back pain relief without knowing what’s causing the back pain.  Once the structure causing the back pain is known, back pain relief is the next step.  If you have a disc problem, the cutting out a piece of the disc or fusion is rarely a way to get back pain releif.  Other options for disc related back pain relief include stem cell injections.  If you have a facet joint problem, back pain relief may be gained with either the injection of stem cells into the joint or facet joint radiofrequency.  SI joint problems can also cause back pain and injecting the SI joint with anti-inflammatories or stem cells may allow for back pain relief.  Prolotherapy may also provide back pain relief.  Other options for back pain relief include: acupuncture and acupressure , epidurals , physical therapy , and massage therapy.
