Lumbago (also known as lower back pain) is a very common complaint and can occur as a result of muscle sprain, disc disease, or a process intrinsic to the vertebral bones. Over time, the fluid-filled discs in the spine can degenerate or herniate which can cause chronic pain in those respective areas. In some cases, herniated discs can cause narrowing of the spinal canal and exert pressure on the nerve roots which can cause pain radiating down the leg. In severe cases, this can lead to symptoms such as weakness, numbness, or bladder dysfunction.
We offer a number of different conservative and interventional treatments, which may be used on their own or as a combination, depending on your condition. Our conservative treatments include physical therapy, TENS, and traction treatments. Our Fort Myers pain management team uses many different interventional treatments include many different types of injections that target different sources of pain. Many times, a combination of injections to target one or more areas of pain in the spine result in the best relief. Other times, only one type of injection is needed.
