Pain Management for Lower Back Pain

At TRI Physical Therapy, we specialize in providing comprehensive pain management services for individuals suffering from lower back pain, a common ailment that can significantly impact daily life. Our approach to managing lower back pain is rooted in a deep understanding of its causes and the most effective treatments for relief and long-term recovery. Our team of experts begins with a thorough evaluation to understand the specific nature of your lower back pain. This assessment allows us to tailor a treatment plan that addresses your unique needs. We believe that an accurate diagnosis is key to effective treatment, and we use the latest diagnostic techniques to ensure we pinpoint the source of your pain.

Causes of Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain, characterized by discomfort in the lumbar region, can stem from various causes, including muscle strains, herniated discs, arthritis, injury or trauma, poor posture or spinal issues. The complexity of the lower back, with its intricate arrangement of bones, muscles, and nerves, makes it susceptible to injury and pain. Distinguishing between acute and chronic lower back pain is crucial. Acute pain typically results from a specific injury and lasts for a short duration, whereas chronic pain persists for months, often without an identifiable cause. Understanding the nature of your pain is a critical step towards selecting the most effective management strategies.

How We Address Lower Back Pain

Our treatment plans often include a combination of physical therapy, and minimally invasive procedures. Physical therapy is a cornerstone of our treatment approach. Our skilled physical therapists work with you to strengthen the muscles supporting your lower back, improve flexibility, and increase range of motion. We design personalized exercise programs that you can also perform at home, empowering you to take an active role in your recovery. On the other hand, our minimally invasive procedures, integral to our treatment approach, utilize advanced techniques to alleviate lower back pain with reduced recovery time and minimal discomfort, ensuring a swift and effective path to pain relief. 

Regenerative Therapy For Back Pain

Back pain can be an ongoing source of misery for individuals of any age and can seriously reduce quality of life. Causes for back discomfort may range from muscle strains, spinal injuries, poor posture and other causes. Though many treatments for back pain exist, including over-the-counter medication, physical therapy, and surgery, some people may find relief through regenerative medicine techniques. Regenerative medicine refers to an emerging field that uses cellular methods to heal damaged tissues within our bodies. Regenerative medicine techniques like tissue-derived allografts or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), when applied to backache treatment, can facilitate natural healing processes within the body and alleviate pain by stimulating platelets and undifferentiated cells to work their magic on healing. Regenerative techniques may include tissue allografts or PRP which promote healing while providing temporary pain relief.

Trigger Point Injections

After experiencing an injury to the lower back, trigger points may develop and make movement difficult. They are easily identified as sensations along your spine which cause an immediate twitch response when touched, such as reddening of skin along the spine or tender spots in muscles that produce pressure or pain in their vicinity.

Trigger point injections are local sedatives injected directly into specific areas around your back for the purpose of producing numbing effects and possibly adding steroids for inflammation reduction or pain relief. They should always be administered using antiseptic techniques so as to maintain needle cleanliness and avoid cross-contamination of needles with unwanted material. Trigger point injections should only be considered when patients have not responded positively to prescribed physiotherapy or rehabilitation plans after 4 to 6 weeks.

Epidural injections

The epidural injection is a steroid-anti-inflammatory drug that is injected directly into the sensitive nerve root. It is injected in the area where the most pain is felt, which is the lower back. It is effective in relieving pain from sciatica, cervical and thoracic spinal nerves and sciatica.

You can use these injections to reduce pain, increase mobility, and enhance function in your lower back. They will also help you recover faster during a rehabilitation plan. This can reduce inflammation and nerve pain, allowing you to avoid invasive surgery or oral medications.

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy stimulates the formation of new cells and healing in the lower spine. This complementary and alternative therapy helps manage lower back pain due to degenerated or overused joints, ligaments, tendons and/or articulations. To kickstart the healing, a non-hormonal natural solution is injected around or into the lower back joints. You can expect your back to be stronger and experience significant pain relief within 4-6 weeks. You may notice improvements to your condition after receiving prolotherapy.
