Innovative Treatment for Upper and Lower Back Pain
Our Back Pain Treatment Process
Back pain causes the average American to lose two workdays a year, according to a recent study by the Bone and Joint Initiative USA. Back pain doesn’t just come from slips, falls, and car accidents. You can get it from repeatedly lifting objects or just sitting for long periods at work. It’s no wonder that it’s the most common contribution to disability across the globe.
Your back pain is more than just an annoyance. Severe cases can prevent you from accomplishing even the simplest everyday tasks. And while painkillers may be efficient at numbing the ache, the relief they bring is only temporary. At Joint Pain Clinic, we’ll make sure you stay in peak performance by treating your upper and lower back pain without the use of narcotics or putting you under the knife.
Our Minimally-invasive Plan
Our Long Beach clinic treats chronic back pain using a two-fold plan. Here’s how it works.
1. Initial Injection
First, we’ll inject the affected area’s nerves with medication that increases blood flow. This heightened circulation helps your body flush out inflammation on your back joints.
2. Innovative Therapy
After the initial injection, we’ll use updated cryotherapy instruments to strategically spritz the area with a near-freezing jet of CO2 on the affected joint. The cold temperature will pump up the blood flow even more, decreasing the numbing feeling caused by back pain.
The innovative back pain treatment options we provide can help you manage the aches you feel in your joints without depending on painkillers. All you need to do is work with us through the following process:
1. Appointment Setting
Give us a call to schedule an appointment with our doctor.
Once we’ve determined the affected joint(s), we’ll proceed to our two-fold plan. This process has minimal side-effects so you’ll enjoy pain relief without worries.
Head to our clinic at our arranged date for consultation. Our experienced physician, Dr. Georges F. El Khoury will examine your back pain through physical tests and using a fluoroscope. This tool is used to identify the nerves that may be causing the discomfort you feel.
Our patients often report improvement in their conditions, like a better range of motion and being able to go back to their regular activities without feeling significant pain. But if you still feel like you need further treatment, we’d be more than happy to assist you.
