Scottsdale Neck & Back Pain Treatment
We Address Pain Through a Holistic, Patient-Centric Approach
The neck and back is a large area with many bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, nerves, and connective tissues, all of which are prone to injury and pain, from the neck down through the tailbone. There are many forms of neck and back pain, and the causes are just as numerous. For instance, you may experience muscle strains, nerve pain, or joint problems that lead to debilitating spinal pain. These could result from overexertion or osteoarthritis, or from lifestyle habits such as poor posture or having an unsupportive mattress.
Our interventionalists treat the following kinds of neck and back pain:
- Sciatica: This condition is caused by a compressed nerve in the lower back, which may be caused by a herniated or slipped disc. The pressure on the nerve root can cause burning pain from the buttocks down the back of the leg (usually only one leg is affected). Sciatica usually improves with home pain management techniques, but symptoms may also improve from anti-inflammatory spinal injections or alternative therapies.
- Radiculopathy: This form of back pain typically affects the cervical (neck) portion of the spine or the lumbar (lower back) spine. It may be the result of sciatic nerve compression, degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, or spinal stenosis. Your doctor will ask you when and how your pain started and whether it’s constant or intermittent. Various treatments for radiculopathy include spinal corticosteroid injections and lifestyle changes.
- SI joint pain: The sacroiliac (SI) joint is in the sacrum (the tailbone), and pain in this area is felt in the low back and hips. Eventually, pain may radiate to the lower hip, groin, or upper thigh. Pain is usually only on one side of the body and may be accompanied by leg numbness or tingling. Nonsurgical treatments include joint injections or nerve ablations/blocks, or radiofrequency ablation.
- Failed back surgery syndrome: Back surgery can fail to relieve pain, even if you underwent surgery performed by the most accomplished spinal surgeons in their field. That’s because back pain is notoriously difficult to treat surgically. Failed back surgery syndrome may be treated non-surgically, as further surgical correction may be unsuccessful as well. Nonsurgical pain treatment may include spinal cord stimulation, facet joint injections, radiofrequency ablations, or nerve stimulation devices.
