Back injuries are some of the most common injuries that cause chronic and acute pain conditions. If you are experiencing pain anywhere in the back that restricts your ability to perform normal activities, come see us at Interventional Medical Associates. We offer upper and lower back pain treatments to men and women living in Gainesville, Newberry, Alachua and the surrounding areas of Florida.
How is Upper Back Pain Treated?
Upper back pain can arise for a number of reasons, although it most often develops from the strain or overuse of the supporting muscles and ligaments. Poor posture can also contribute to back pain throughout the back. Severe cases of back pain may be caused by injury or displacement of the spinal vertebrae and discs. To diagnose upper back pain, we may use digital x-rays or nerve block injections. Once the source of pain is determined, we proceed with treatment that may include joint injections, nerve injections, or spinal cord stimulation.
How is Lower Back Pain Treated?
Like upper back pain, lower back pain is commonly caused by strain, overuse, or poor posture. Severe cases of lower back pain can make it uncomfortable to sit or stand. Our treatment approach for lower back pain is similar to upper back pain. After diagnosis, we may use a number of techniques to help the patient find pain relief. These techniques include nerve blocks, spinal cord stimulation, nerve stimulation, and more. To learn more about treatments for back pain click here.
How is Middle Back Pain Treated?
Middle back pain is most often experienced in combination with upper back pain. Just like other types of back pain, it can be caused by poor posture, strain and a range of injuries. Although uncommon, localized middle back pain is typically an easy treatment. For patients who are experiencing middle back pain in combination with upper or lower back pain, we may need to use a more extensive treatment approach to provide full pain relief. For middle back pain, we also use spinal cord stimulation and nerve block treatments.
