Chronic Back Pain Relief St. Louis
Let’s begin with some background on the causes of back pain:
Low back pain usually comes from one of four sources: 1) muscles or ligaments; 2) intervertebral discs; 3) lumbar facets; or 4) the sacroiliac joint. A simple, painless neuro-diagnostic test done at our office will often inform us right away where the low back pain is originating. A lumbar MRI does not always reveal the origin of the pain; the anatomic picture can often be misleading, and as a result, misdiagnosis and treatment can occur.
As experienced back pain specialists, we will be able to diagnose your pain and match your problem with one of our treatments that are proven to bring relief. Depending on the source of your pain (the “pain generator”) often all that’s needed is physical medicine techniques and treatment with our advanced electro-medical device manufactured by Sanexas, GmBH (Germany). Should the clinical presentation and nerve testing show that the pain is coming from the intervertebral disc (most common source of most chronic low back pain), we can offer SpineTrex non-surgical lumbar decompression which is safe and highly effective and/or injections with or without steroids.
