Back Pain

Did you know that 8 out of 10 people will have back pain at least once in their lives? Back pain may resolve on its own, but many people develop recurring or chronic back pain that interferes with their quality of life. 

People who have moderate back pain may think that rest is the best treatment – and in some cases, that may be true. But too much rest can cause stiffness and muscle loss. A pain management specialist provides guidance for patients on how and when to safely resume normal daily activities, in order to promote healing and build strength. 

Integrated Pain Solutions has years of experience helping people manage back pain. We do more than treat pain – we focus on improving our patients’ overall health and asking them to be active participants in their own care. If traditional treatments have failed to alleviate your back pain, please contact us to request a consultation: (614) 383-6450.  

Common Causes of Back Pain 

Many medical conditions can cause back pain. Some of the conditions we commonly diagnose in our patients include: 

  • Osteoarthritis (characterized by bony overgrowths called bone spurs or bone cysts)
  • Cervical or lumbar radiculopathy (pinched nerve root in the neck or lower back)
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Disc herniation or bulge
  • Muscle strains and ligament sprains
  • Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal)

Common risk factors for chronic back pain include: advancing age, physically demanding jobs, overuse, lack of exercise, obesity, poor posture, traumatic accidents, and genetics.

Back Pain Treatments

Non-surgical interventions like physical therapy are shown to be effective for alleviating many types of back pain. We start with the most conservative approaches to treatment, moving on to more advanced procedures only if patients aren’t reporting a significant improvement. To help patients manage chronic back pain, we may use procedures such as radiofrequency ablation, spinal cord stimulator implants, and pain pump implants.
