Guilford Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Center sees many patients who are experiencing a variety of lumbar spinal symptoms. Our physical therapists are thoroughly trained in spinal pain assessment and management. Through a diagnostic profile, we will be able to determine the source of your back pain and begin a regimen of treatments for controlling and alleviating that pain. We have enjoyed a high success rate for bringing our patients back to a full and healthy lifestyle free from back pain.
Spinal injections are a nonsurgical treatment option for low back pain. They are typically considered after a course of medications and/or physical therapy is completed, without the desired results. Injections can be more effective than an oral medication because they deliver medication directly to the source of the pain. A steroid medication is injected directly into the painful area to deliver a powerful anti-inflammatory solution. Depending on the type of injection, some forms of low back pain relief may be long lasting and some may be only temporary.
