Experts estimate that up to 80% of the world’s population will experience back pain at some point in life. Back pain can range from a dull, constant ache (chronic) to a sudden sharp pain (acute). In addition to traditional procedures to alleviate back pain such as epidural steroid injections, selective nerve root blocks and rhizotomy treatment, OPTIMAL now offers PRP injections and stem cell-like regenerative therapies for back pain relief.
Pain can occur in the neck, mid-back or lower back. The discs, facets, pars interarticularis, sacroiliac joints and nerves can all cause back pain. The first step in addressing back pain relief is to determine where the pain is centered, where the pain radiates and what activities cause increase or diminished pain. Once a proper diagnosis is given, treatment options can be discussed. For patients seeking conservative treatment option to replace or delay surgery, OPTIMAL has a variety of back pain management options.
