We Recommend the Least Invasive Approach to Treat Your Back Pain

At Inspired Spine, our goal it to treat your back pain with the least invasive methods possible to help you live pain-free. We start with a conservative treatment path that involves noninvasive or minimally invasive therapies that may prove sufficient to alleviate your back pain.

Some of the noninvasive or minimally invasive procedures we offer include:

  • Medication: We recommend over-the-counter NSAID pain relievers as the first line of treatment to alleviate pain and control any associated swelling.
  • Physical therapy: Active and passive physical therapy techniques can improve mobility, flexibility, strength, and endurance for many patients.
  • Chiropractic care: We recommend chiropractic care for many patients to alleviate back pain and align their spine.
  • Injections: This minimally invasive nonsurgical treatment can treat some instances of lower back pain. Injections are typically after the patients has had course of medications and/or physical therapy is completed, but before surgery is considered. Injections are usually more effective than oral medication, due to the fact that they deliver medication directly to the painful area. Injections can also be used as a diagnostic tool. These injections provide temporary pain relief, which helps your physicians in identifying a cause of your back pain so they can formulate the best treatment plan for you. If the pain relief is more long-lasting, continuing the injections may be the least invasive course of treatment.

Advanced Back Pain Therapies

If none of the first-line, conservative back pain treatments or injection therapies prove to be enough to resolve your back pain, we have more advanced pain therapies that are also minimally invasive, outpatient procedures, including neuroablation. This minimally invasive procedure has the aim of temporarily blocking or interrupting your nerve pathways sending pain signals to the brain, also known as denervation.

Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgeries (MISS)

Your doctor may recommend minimally invasive spinal surgery if the following are true for you:

  • Conservative back pain treatments have failed
  • Pain, numbness, and spasms have persisted for an extended period
  • You are unable to perform routine functions
