Back Pain Treatment Options:
Dr. Salari recommends physical therapy for most patients with acute or chronic back pain. Depending on your specific conditions and the root cause of your back pain, he may recommend specific exercises to improve your mobility, flexibility, and posture. Your physical therapy may also include ultrasound, electrical stimulation, or heat treatment.
Dr. Salari may recommend personalized medications to alleviate the discomfort, reduce the symptoms of back pain, treat the underlying infection (if present), and aid the healing process. You may receive a combination of topical pain medications, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, muscle relaxants, narcotics, or steroids.
Dr. Salari aims to address the root cause of back pain without resorting to surgery. However, if all other techniques fail to yield results or it’s determined that you absolutely need surgery, Dr. Salari will curate a personalized, minimally invasive back surgery plan for you. He offers surgeries such as lumbar fusion and uses advanced surgical techniques to improve mobility with minimal downtime.
