Back Pain Management

At Jonalee Wellness, our aestheticians use many methods for back pain management. Back pain is a very common condition with four out of five people experiencing low back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain can be caused by many conditions including degenerative disc disease, disc herniation, muscle strains and spasms, osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, spondylolysis and sciatica. Joints like the sacroiliac joint can also present with low back pain. Back pain can be associated with referred pain to the leg and foot secondary to pressure on the nerve roots. Some patients can also experience weakness, numbness, or tingling.

If you suffer from back pain, please call and schedule your appointment with Dr Iskander, a board-certified pain management physician, today. At Jonalee Pain and Wellness, we use several modalities to help improve your pain and function. Modalities like physical therapy, home exercise programs, non-opioid medication management or procedural interventions may be indicated.

Some of the common procedures for back pain management include:

Epidural Steroid Injections: Steroids are injected in the vicinity of inflamed nerves to decrease inflammation and to improve pain. This procedure is performed under x-ray guidance.

Medial Branch Nerve Blocks: This injection targets the nerves that supply the facet joints of the back. This procedure helps identify the source of your pain and is performed under x-ray guidance. If you experience pain relief from this procedure, you may be a candidate for radiofrequency ablation which provides a longer lasting pain relief.

Lateral Branch Nerve Blocks: This injection targets the nerves that supply the sacroiliac joints. This procedure helps identify the source of your pain and is performed under x-ray guidance. If you experience pain relief from this procedure, you may be a candidate for radiofrequency ablation which provides a longer lasting pain relief.

Radiofrequency Ablation: This procedure decreases nerve transmission of pain signals by causing a heat lesion on the nerve. This procedure is performed under x-ray guidance.

Spinal Cord Stimulators: This is an implanted device that sends electrical signals to the back to decrease pain.
