Back Pain Q & A

What is back pain?

Back pain encompasses any type of discomfort you experience in your back, whether the pain is a chronic dull ache, intermittent shooting pain, or a sudden burning sensation. Back pain is a common problem for many adults, but for most people, the pain resolves on its own within days or weeks. 

However, for some people, their back pain turns into a chronic condition that causes discomfort that lasts three or more months. This type of chronic pain can affect many aspects of your life and impair your physical and emotional health.

JNT Natural Medicine offers many innovative treatments for back pain, whether acute or chronic, to help you get the relief you need for a better quality of life.

What causes back pain?

Your back pain can develop from a range of causes. However, in most cases, the pain develops due to an issue with one of the structures that make up your back, such as your muscles, nerves, bones, or joints. Common causes of back pain include:

  • Bulging or herniated disc
  • Muscle spasms
  • Strains
  • Sciatica
  • Disc degeneration
  • Injury

Back pain can also result from an underlying condition or disease, such as kidney stones or an infection, though these causes are less common.

What are the treatments for back pain?

The experienced pain medicine team offers many innovative and natural treatments to help reduce your back pain. Many of these treatments are aimed at healing the underlying cause of your pain to alleviate the problem altogether.

Some of the treatments for back pain include:

Back on Trac™

Back on Trac is a noninvasive treatment for back pain that stretches the spine, joints, and muscles in your back, neck, hips, and thighs. The back decompression with Back on Trac only takes 20 minutes and includes vibration and heat therapy. 

Cold laser therapy

To support tissue healing, reduce inflammation, and resolve pain, the team at JNT Natural Medicine offers cold laser therapy. This tool vibrates at the same frequency as your body and improves the communication between your cells to support the healing process.

Regenerative medicine

The practice specializes in regenerative medicine and uses stem cell therapy to help your body heal damaged tissues to relieve back pain.

Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) therapy

PEMF therapy uses special electromagnetic energy that focuses on impaired cell function and chemistry to restore the electromagnetic energy in the cells and tissues that may have been damaged by your injury or disease. 

JNT Natural Medicine also offers Trigenics®, chiropractic spinal adjustments, point stimulation therapy, and neurostimulator therapy, which may also be included in your back pain treatment plan.
