Lower Back Pain Treatment
Every year, more than 65 million Americans suffer from lower back pain. This pain may manifest as a shooting, searing pain down to the legs, persistent aches in the lower back, or muscle tightening. In some cases, individuals may be unable to stand up straight. Most often, these complications stem from an irritated nerve near the spine. If the nerve traveling from the spinal cord to the bones is pinched or irritated – usually due to a disc bulge or herniation – the muscles tense and the pain sets in.
Unfortunately, back pain is caused by a number of different diseases and conditions. It makes diagnosis complicated, though not impossible. Here at Bay Area Disc Centers, we use top-of-the-line equipment and methods to address any lower back pain patients may experience. Our lower back pain treatment in Campbell and San Mateo, CA, are proven to provide relief.
Some of the most common conditions that lead to lower back pain include fractures and dislocations, degenerative disc disease, disc herniation, osteoarthritis, facet syndrome, or spinal stenosis. Such conditions tend to affect the more than 50 nerve roots, running along the spinal column, in some way. Each of these nerve roots may become irritated, leading to intense back pain.
To better address lower back pain in patients, we utilize an eight-week program that includes our comprehensive S.P.I.N.E. approach – a five-step plan designed to promote better health and wellbeing. The S.P.I.N.E. treatment includes:
- Spinal Decompression – Rehydrates and heals the disc
- Physiotherapy – Electric muscle stimulation, heat/ice, and cold laser therapy
- Inter-segmental Mobilization – Restores motion and function to the spinal joints
- Nutritional Support – Supports improved disc health daily
- Exercise Rehabilitation – Helps to stretch and strengthen the supporting core musculature
When combined with our advanced technology, including spinal decompression tables and laser machines, Dr. Ferrigno is able to address lower back pain in less time.
