Spinal disc problems such as herniated discs and bulging discs can cause severe back and leg pain and can harm a persons quality of life. Well, AZ Pain Centers is here to help with your pain. There’s currently 27 million people in the US that suffer from herniated discs so if you’re one of those people know that you’re not alone and that there’s help out there for you.
What is a herniated disc? A herniated disc is associated with pressure being put on your nerve or soft tissue anywhere in the spine area. Usually an MRI and exam are used to diagnose the problem. The treatment is usually an anti-inflammatory injection administered directly to the area where the disc touches the nerve causing the pain. The difference with AZ Pain Centers and other treatment facilities is that AZ Pain Centers administers non-steroidal injections as oppose to injections with steroids. The non-steroidal injection gives the anti-inflammatory needed without the panel of steroid side effects. AZ Pain Centers also does not use narcotics to mask the pain or effect your perception of the pain. AZ Pain Centers goes directly to the source in a series of three injections at two week intervals. They combine the injections with physical therapy and this combination has a 95% chance of curing your pain problem.
