- Spinal Cord Stimulation
- Radiofrequency Neurotomy
- Radiofrequency Ablation
- Stem Cell Therapy
- PRP Injections
- Nerve Block Injections
- Epidural Steroid Injections
Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a minimally invasive procedure that involves placing small electrodes in the epidural space of the spinal cord to deliver electrical pulses. These pulses disrupt the pain signals being transmitted to the brain, thereby reducing the perception of pain. The intensity and frequency of the electrical pulses can be adjusted according to the patient’s individual needs. SCS has been shown to be effective in treating chronic back pain, especially when other treatments have failed.
Radiofrequency neurotomy, also known as radiofrequency ablation (RFA), is a procedure that involves heating up a small area of nerve tissue with an electrode, thereby disrupting the nerve’s ability to transmit pain signals. This can provide pain relief for several months to a year, depending on the patient’s individual response. RFA is commonly used to treat pain associated with arthritis or spinal joint degeneration. This may be an effective back pain treatment option for some patients.
Stem cell therapy involves the injection of stem cells, which are undifferentiated cells that have the potential to differentiate into a variety of different cell types, into the damaged area of the spine. The goal is for these cells to differentiate into healthy tissue and promote the regeneration of damaged tissue. While the use of stem cell therapy for back pain is still in the early stages of research, some studies have shown promising results.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections involve injecting a concentrated solution of the patient’s own platelets into the affected area of the spine. Platelets contain growth factors that can stimulate tissue repair and regeneration, and may help reduce inflammation and pain. While PRP injections are still relatively new for back pain treatment, early studies suggest that they may be effective for some patients.
Nerve block injections involve injecting a local anesthetic or other medication directly into the affected nerve or nerves, with the goal of blocking the transmission of pain signals. This can provide temporary pain relief and may be used in combination with other treatments. Nerve block injections are commonly used to treat back pain associated with conditions such as herniated discs or spinal stenosis.
Epidural steroid injections involve injecting a steroid medication into the epidural space of the spine, with the goal of reducing inflammation and swelling in the affected area. This can provide temporary pain relief and may be used in combination with other treatments. Epidural steroid injections are commonly used to treat back pain associated with conditions such as herniated discs or spinal stenosis.
