If arthritis is making everyday life difficult, you’ll be glad to know that help is available. This video discusses how arthritic back pain develops and what treatment options a pain management doctor can provide for it.
Arthritis results from joint deterioration. This deterioration causes the joints to lose the cartilage lining that prevents bone from rubbing directly on bone. With bone-on-bone abrasion comes significant pain and stiffness. To alleviate these symptoms, pain management doctors offer several treatment options. Minimal back pain may warrant oral medications or steroid injections. More severe cases of arthritis might demand minimally invasive radiofrequency ablation or back surgery.
