Back Pain

Back pain is an incredibly common symptom, with over 80% of the population having an episode in their lifetime.  The good news is that most back pain is short lived and resolves.  Carolina Spine can work with a person to help reduce future incidences of back pain.  For back pain that does not resolve, it is a significant socioeconomic issue with back pain being one of the leading causes for missed work.  Carolina Spine can help dramatically reduce or eliminate pain to allow you to return to your normal daily activities through establishing the correct diagnosis and prescribing the right treatment or procedure.  Some of the treatments include appropriate medications and specific spine physical therapy. Some of the procedures include trigger point injections, transforaminal epidural steroid injections, sacroiliac joint injections, facet joint injections, radiofrequency ablation or RFA, and discography.  These minimally invasive procedures can eliminate the need for major spine surgery or if surgery is necessary, pinpoint where pain is located in the spine to guide the surgeon.
