Back Pain Q & A
What's causing my back pain?
Your back pain could be due to an internal issue like a kidney infection or gynecological condition, but for most people, back pain has a musculoskeletal cause. Sports and workplace injuries are a common way of damaging your spine and can leave you with chronic back pain.
Other frequent causes of back pain include:
- Muscular strains
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated discs
- Sciatica (lumbar radiculopathy)
- Facet joint arthritis
- Vertebral compression fractures
- Failed back surgery syndrome
Muscle strains and other types of soft tissue damage tend to be acute problems that heal within a few weeks. However, most of these causes of back pain have their origins in the deterioration of your spine over the years.
How is back pain diagnosed and treated?
Diagnosing the cause of your back pain begins with your provider at Precision Laser Joint and Spine Pain Center conducting a physical examination and discussing your symptoms. That exam provides valuable indications as to the nature of your back pain, which diagnostic imaging tests like X-rays can confirm.
The specific treatment you need for your back pain depends on what's causing it, but very often. a combination of rest and gentle activity is effective. Traditionally, patients whose back pain doesn't improve might need to consider procedures like epidural steroid injections and even surgery in some cases.
At Precision Laser Joint and Spine Pain Center, the team has a completely non-invasive solution for back pain — multiwave locked system (MLS) laser therapy.
How does MLS laser therapy help with reducing back pain?
MLS laser therapy technology from ASA Laser is an innovative alternative to invasive procedures like epidural injections and spinal surgery. Lasers are painless and safe, as they use light energy to promote tissue healing in your back.
The MLS laser acts in several ways to support healing, including:
- Accelerating toxin removal
- Encouraging oxygen and nutrient delivery
- Blocking signals from pain nerves to your brain
- Releasing natural substances (endorphins and encephalin) to fight pain
- Stimulating the growth of new cells
MLS laser therapy is suitable for most types of back pain, offering an effective treatment with minimal risk.
