For patients suffering from back pain, we know surgery should always be a last resort, pursued only when all other treatment options have been exhausted. Typically, the less invasive a treatment option, the less likely you are to continue to experience pain post-recovery. Only when a pain condition is so severe that less invasive treatment options are rendered ineffective, should surgery be considered. Even then, typically surgery will only mitigate pain, provided proper post-surgery rehabilitation is administered, but not relieve pain completely.
Redefine Healthcare is a Tier-One, In-Network provider comprised of top rated, board-certified physicians that specializes in minimally invasive procedures that afford patients a pain free lifestyle without surgery. Five Minimally Invasive Ways Redefine Healthcare Can Treat Back Pain Are:
- Physical Therapy
- Our board-certified physical therapists are experts in treating a variety of pain conditions and can help you regain strength and mobility, thereby reducing or even eliminating back pain.
- Epidural Steroid Injections
- There’s a reason epidural steroid injections are the most commonly administered injection; they are effective in relieving back pain. As the name indicates, a steroid is injected into the epidural region of the spine. Epidural injections can be used to treat sciatica, spinal stenosis, spondylolysis, or disc herniation.
- Radiofrequency Ablation
- This safe and effective treatment for back pain utilizes a radio wave to send an electric current that heats nerve tissue, effectively numbing the pain receptors of the nerve.
- Facet Joint Injections
- The facet joints are small joints along the spine that help provide stability and mobility and can become painful from arthritis or injury. The steroid medication injected into the facet joints can relieve pain, allowing for the patient to better endure a physical therapy or rehabilitation routine.
- Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
- Used by professional athletes, PRP Therapy involves places a blood sample from the patient into a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets in the blood by separating them from the plasma. The PRP injected into the pain area is meant to encourage more efficient healing, attributed to the healing and clotting properties of the concentrated platelets.
