Low Back Pain Management

There are many sources of low back pain. Taking the time to listen to patients and examine them is fundamental to understanding why they are having pain and what may be done to help them.

I try to employ a wide range of modalities to assist patients in coping and healing from their low back pain.

Opioid Medications

 

Opioids are a class of powerful drugs. They can control severe pain. Oxycodone, hydrocodone, and codeine are examples of prescription opioids. So are morphine and fentanyl.
