Low Back Pain
Low back pain affects a large number of the population every year. In fact, low back pain comes in right after headaches as the one of the most common neurological ailments in the United States. If you have been experiencing discomfort in your back, the Pain Relief Centers of Massachusetts can help. By conducting a full evaluation, we can diagnose the cause of your low back pain and prescribe a treatment plan to alleviate your symptoms. The following just a sample of the chiropractic care and physical medicine services we provide to patients in Dennis, Hyannis and Yarmouth, MA.
Lumbar Trigger Point Injections: When muscles are unable to relax, they can form knots that are extremely painful and sensitive. In addition to affecting the surrounding joints and soft tissue, lumbar trigger points can also cause referred pain in other parts of the body. By injecting a local anesthetic and steroid into this area, the trigger point will become inactive, thus alleviating the associated pain.
Sacroiliac Joint Injections: The sacroiliac joints are located next to the spine, connecting the sacrum with the hips. When these joints become inflamed, it may result in chronic pain. By injecting a local anesthetic into the sacroiliac joint, our doctors can diagnose the source of the problem and provide long-term relief.
Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections: Nerves in the spine can become irritated when pushed on by surrounding structures or fluids. By injecting a steroid into the lumbar epidural space, we can reduce inflammation as well as low back pain.
Piriformis Injections: When the piriformis muscles becomes contracted or tender, it can cause an aching sensation in the lower back, buttocks, and legs. When this condition does not respond to traditional physical rehabilitation methods, a doctor may inject anti-inflammatory drugs to relieve pain.
Back Support Pain-Relieving Braces: Back braces can help prevent the risk of reinjury and stabilize your lower and spine and pelvis in order to relieve lower back pain.
