Using Technology To Manage Chronic Pain

Radiofrequency Neurotomy, also known as Rhizotomy, is a procedure that uses heat to disrupt the nerve signals that are causing chronic pain. This can be an effective treatment for pain that originates from the joints, such as osteoarthritis, or from the muscles, such as fibromyalgia.

Lower Back Pain

Low back pain can be brought on by a simple injury that may heal in a few days to weeks. It can also occur as a result of damage to numerous soft tissues or the spinal column itself. The damage could stem from the intervertebral discs, poor movement of the spinal joints, or compression of the nerve roots in this area.

The most common sign of lower back pain is pain that’s above the hips spreading side to side or radiating from the center area. While muscle damage is the most common cause of lower back pain, there are numerous others as well.

Facet joint dysfunction is another common type of lower back pain. The facet joints, which are located behind each disc at the motion segment of the lumbar spine, may see nerve damage. This can prove to be painful for many people as they age. Spinal stenosis occurs when there is a narrowing of the spinal canal. This is the location where the nerve roots are present. This narrowing can create significant lower back pain. Your mobility will also be limited in these conditions.

Treatment of lower back pain depends greatly on the cause. Our team uses a range of tools to help improve the alignment of the spinal column and nerves within it. Proper posture may offer some benefits, too. Yet, for many people treatment needs to be more advanced such as with neurosurgery, nerve root block injections, and interventional pain management of other forms. We use the very best level of pain treatment available in Summerville, SC, to provide you with the relief you need.
