Back Pain Q & A

What causes back pain?

While back pain would certainly be easier to treat if there was one specific cause, that’s simply not the case. There are a number of issues that can lead to prolonged back pain, including:

  • Strained muscles
  • Bulging disks
  • Ruptured discs
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Spinal stress fractures
  • Strained ligaments
  • Constriction of the spinal canal
  • Scoliosis

In short, back pain can be caused by problems with your muscles, nerves, or bones. Because the causes of back pain are so wide-ranging, effectively treating your pain comes down to finding a back pain specialist who will work to diagnose your specific condition and treat your unique causes.

How is back pain treated?

Back pain can be dangerous, not because of the pain itself, but because of the treatments offered for it. The national opioid crisis is caused, at least in part, by medical professionals’ willingness to hand out addictive painkillers when people have prolonged pain. Myofascial Pain Specialists offers patients a safer but equally effective alternative.

Their high-grade, multimodal pain management techniques include pain gels, nutrition plans, and injections. This expert team will work with you to treat your specific causes of back pain in a safe and effective way.

What kind of back pain injections do you offer?

Because of the numerous health risks associated with steroid injections, such as bone, tissue, and nerve damage, Myofascial Pain Specialists will not give them to patients. Instead, they offer two safe and highly effective alternatives.

Toradol

Injecting Toradol can give you notable pain relief. Toradol is not a narcotic, steroid, or opiate. It’s a non-addictive, extremely strong anti-inflammatory drug. When injected at your pain site, it can deliver pain relief.

The pain relief from Toradol is powerful but short-term, usually lasting a week or less. As an anti-inflammatory, however, it can treat the root of your back pain, giving you extended relief.

Sarapin

Sarapin is a safe, natural alternative to steroid injections. Derived from the pitcher plant, this injection turns off the pain signals in your nerves. As an effective, naturally derived painkiller, Sarapin has been used for more than 70 years.
