As an expert orthopedic specialist at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Our practice is committed to delivering personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs.

Low back pain is a prevalent condition that can be caused by various factors, including muscle strain, ligament sprain, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, or underlying medical conditions. At Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of low back pain, offering comprehensive care to alleviate pain, restore function, and improve quality of life.

When you experience low back pain, it can significantly impact your ability to perform daily activities and diminish your overall quality of life. Our team of orthopedic specialists begins the evaluation process with a thorough assessment of your medical history, followed by a physical examination and may utilize imaging studies such as X-rays, MRI, or CT scans to accurately diagnose the underlying cause of your low back pain.

Treatment options for low back pain at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists may include:

  • Conservative therapies: Initially, we may recommend conservative treatments such as rest, ice or heat therapy, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and activity modification to reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Physical therapy: Our experienced physical therapists design specialized exercise programs focused on strengthening the muscles of the core, improving flexibility, and promoting proper posture and body mechanics to alleviate low back pain.
  • Medications: Depending on the underlying cause of your low back pain, we may prescribe medications such as muscle relaxants, neuropathic pain medications, or epidural steroid injections to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.
  • Minimally invasive procedures: For certain conditions such as herniated discs or spinal stenosis, we offer minimally invasive procedures such as epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, or radiofrequency ablation to provide targeted pain relief and improve mobility.
  • Regenerative medicine: We offer innovative regenerative therapies such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections or stem cell therapy to stimulate the body’s natural healing process and promote tissue repair in cases of disc degeneration or discogenic pain.
  • Surgical intervention: In cases of severe or persistent low back pain that does not respond to conservative treatments, we may recommend surgical intervention such as discectomy, laminectomy, or spinal fusion to address structural abnormalities and restore spinal stability.

Our team of experts will work with you to find the best treatment plan for your needs.

We offer everything from chiropractic care to massage therapy to acupuncture. And our state-of-the-art facilities are equipped with the latest technology to ensure you get the best possible care.
