Diagnosing the cause of your pain could include imaging or blood tests. After we have a better understanding of what may be the problem, we will work with you to find the best treatment options that fit your goals.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

Our Doctors will start with non-surgical treatment options. The most common conservative treatments for back pain include:

Exercise: Following a prescribed activity regimen and avoiding bed rest can help regain strength and promote healing. The Doctor will diagnose your pain and provide you with a customized activity plan.

Physical therapy: We have physiotherapists specially trained in spine care. Following a prescribed activity can help regain strength and promote healing. The Doctor will diagnose your pain and provide you with a customized activity plan.

Pain medicine: Anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen and muscle relaxants may help you reduce muscle tension and increase ability to move. Upon diagnosis, the Doctor will prescribe pain medication if it is needed to treat your condition.

We also offer minimally invasive spine procedures, including:

Epidural injections: The Physician injects steroid medication into the spinal column. Helps to reduce inflammation and pain associated with pinched nerves in the spine.

Lumbar facet injections: The Physician injects a local anaesthetic into your spinal column in the lower back.

Lumbar radio frequency ablation: The Physician uses an electrical current to heat up a small area of nerve tissue in the lower back, which helps to reduce pain signals from the nerve.

If conservative or non-surgical treatments do not resolve your pain, the Spine Specialist may recommend surgical treatment. If you need surgery, the Physician will talk to you about what kind of surgery is right for you.
