Back Pain Q & A

What causes back pain?

There are many possible causes of back pain. Some of the most common are:

  • Arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Herniated disc
  • Osteoporosis

Many other things could cause back pain, including obesity. Regardless of the cause of your back pain, your experienced pain management physician at Advanced Spine Care and Pain Management can make the proper diagnosis and prescribe effective treatment.

How is back pain treated?

The best back pain treatment is the least invasive, and the team at Advanced Spine Care and Pain Management completely understands that you want to avoid surgery if at all possible. There are several back pain treatments that can give you relief without surgery.

What is platelet-rich plasma therapy?

With platelet-rich plasma therapy, your doctor takes a sample of your blood, then uses an advanced machine called a centrifuge to extract the powerful healing platelets in your blood. Your doctor injects those extracted platelets into the area where you're injured. This can greatly enhance healing for injuries such as a herniated disc.

What are steroid injections?

Injections are great for pain relief, and they can last for several months or longer. Some of the most popular injection options include epidural steroid injection, selective nerve root block, and facet joint block.

What are my prescription medication options?

Many prescription medicines may help with back pain. Your doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs, nerve pain drugs, or other types of pain relievers depending on your specific needs.

What about medical marijuana?

Medical marijuana may help alleviate chronic back pain. Your doctor works with you on whether this could be the right choice for your pain management needs.

Your back pain solution may involve several of these therapies, or your doctor may recommend a different course of action. Medical marijuana services are available at the Hartsdale office location only.
