Radicular Back Pain Services

Back pain can be classified in many different ways. Radicular back pain occurs when pain radiates from an inflamed or pinched nerve root in your spin. The nerve roots are branched off the spinal cord and pass messages to the rest of the body. These spinal nerves signal pain messages to each other, making you experience pain symptoms. 

If you are suffering from Radicular Back pain, the first step is to schedule a consultation. Our back pain specialists will help diagnose your pain and develop an individualize treatment plan to effectively treat your symptoms at their root cause.

How Radicular Back Pain Works

Pain that travels from your back and hips into your legs is defined as radicular pain. Pain travels from the spinal nerve roots causing the radiating symptoms. The type of pain you may experience can vary, depending on the severity of the source/injury.

Some symptoms can include dull throbs, aching or burning, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the legs. Radicular pain travels through the nerves down through the spine. It can affect your hips, back, and legs. Your daily activities can become deeply impacted. Simple things like walking, sitting or standing can become very uncomfortable, making participation in your daily life difficult.  

How To Treat Radicular Back Pain

Pain and Spine Specialists offers patients several options for radicular back pain care. Our practice treats patients with progressive and innovative therapies tailored to provide effective relief.  

For some patients, noninvasive treatments like medications are an effective form of treatment. Pain and Spine Specialists will evaluate your symptoms and determine which type of back pain you are suffering from. Your radicular back pain condition can be treated with medications like NSAID’s (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications). In some cases, your provider may feel a combination of medications like NSAID’s and opioid medications may be necessary.  

If our providers determine your condition may be more severe, we can recommend minimally invasive procedures like epidural steroid injections (ESI’s). A common treatment for lower back pain, ESI’s provide relief from your pain symptoms by delivering anesthetic and steroid medication to the source. The goal is to receive pressure from the nerves.
