State-of-the-Art Treatment for Chronic Back Pain
At EmergeOrtho, our physicians are the leading experts in diagnosing and treating a wide variety of back injuries and conditions. We understand that chronic back pain can take a toll on you physically and mentally, which is why we believe in providing the most advanced, innovative and compassionate care for those who suffer from back pain.
Causes of Chronic Back Pain
There are several causes of chronic upper (cervical) and lower (lumbar) back pain. While many are caused by injury, overuse or inflammation, others may be caused by spinal disc problems, compression fractures, herniated discs and even scoliosis.
There are also a number of factors that may increase your risk of developing chronic lower back pain. Several of these risk factors are excess weight, lack of exercise, incorrect lifting, diseases such as cancer and arthritis, smoking and psychological conditions such as anxiety and depression.
At EmergeOrtho, we treat several conditions that can cause persistent, chronic back pain. These include:
- Spinal disc problems
- Spondylolisthesis (spinal instability)
- Spinal stenosis
Other causes of chronic back pain include:
- Compression fractures
- Ruptured or herniated discs
- Injuries or trauma
Treatment for chronic back pain
Using a multidisciplinary approach, we’re dedicated to providing an advanced level of care for patients seeking relief from chronic back pain. In keeping with this progressive approach, we will always utilize all nonsurgical treatment options before considering spinal surgery.
Some of these nonsurgical treatments may involve:
- Physical therapy and specialized exercise regimens
- Prescription and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain medication
- Steroid injections of medications
- Back braces
- Spinal cord stimulators
In some cases, surgery is a treatment option to help control symptoms. Our team of specialty-trained and board-certified spine surgeons offer the latest minimally invasive procedures. In some cases, our patients have a simple spine surgery in the morning and are home later the same day.
EmergeOrtho is committed to providing the highest quality treatment and patient education for those suffering from chronic back pain and other forms of back, neck and spine pain. Our physicians work with you and all members of your health care team to tailor a treatment to fit your individual needs. We want you to emerge stronger, healthier, and better.
