Chronic lower back pain is something that can negatively affect your life, leaving you stranded at home instead of participating with family and friends at functions that you wish you could attend. We have helped many of our patients get back to their daily lives, by helping them find the proper treatment of injections that lets them manage their chronic pain, and in some cases, alleviate all their pain. One possible solution to your chronic lower back pain is intradiscal elctrothermal therapy. This is a treatment that we have performed successfully many times.
Injections to Relieve Chronic Lower Back Pain
Intradiscal Electrothermal Therapy is a quick and easy treatment that help alleviate chronic pain associated with herniated, or weakened discs. By using a needle, a wire is inserted into the damaged area of the disc. The wire is then heated up, which helps to repair the weakened or torn disc walls.
This treatment is something that can be done on an outpatient basis, meaning there will not be a long recuperation time after the treatment. In addition, you won’t need to spend any time in the hospital, which most people greatly appreciate. The incision will be small, so the surrounding area will easily be able to be covered with a bandage.
Will Immediate Pain Relief Be Experienced?
Each person’s response to medication and therapies varies, so it is difficult to say whether you will feel immediate pain relief or not. It is possible that you will experience a decrease in the amount of chronic pain that you feel rather quickly. However, it is also possible that it may take several days to start to feel relief from your chronic pain. Once the injection occurs, your doctor will likely require you to start some sort of physical therapy.
