Eliminating Lower Back Pain for Good

How to Eliminate Lower Back Pain for Good?

The majority of back pain symptoms stem from inflammation due to an acute injury or overuse of the muscles, joints, or tendons. Understanding and adhering to proper posture and lifting techniques can decrease your chances of sustaining a back injury, such as a fracture, herniated disc, or strained muscle. However, not all causes of back pain are as easily preventable; pain can also arise from a chronic condition, such as scoliosis, or a condition that has developed over time, such as osteoarthritis.

If you’re experiencing pain in your lower back, a minimally invasive epidural injection, performed by our physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors, may be the right procedure for you. An epidural steroid injection places the anti-inflammatory medicine into the epidural space surrounding your lumbar spine, helping to decrease inflammation in the nerve roots and reduce pain in your back and legs.

Lumbar epidural injections have been highly successful in reducing pain for many patients.

Using X-ray guidance, our physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors are able to confirm correct placement of the medication during a lumbar epidural injection.

If you’re experiencing back pain, call Wisconsin Bone and Joint to schedule an appointment with one of our back or physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors, and to find out if this procedure is right for you.
