Low Back Pain (LBP) in Staten Island, NY

Calmare Pain Relief Solutions offers treatment for low back pain to the residents of Staten Island, Brooklyn, and the surrounding communities in New York.

What is low back pain?

Nearly one in four Americans suffer from low back pain, spending about $50 billion a year on treatments. Low back pain can be caused by a number of things, including lifting heavy objects, injuries, pregnancy, or degenerative diseases such as arthritis.

Pain experienced in the lower back can be attributed to issues such as weak muscles of lumbar spine and core components, discs between the vertebrae, ligaments that surround the spine and discs, nerves or muscles, internal organs, or the spinal cord.

How is low back pain treated?

The condition may be treated with Calmare® Therapy, a non-narcotic, non-invasive medical procedure for the treatment of chronic pain. For more information about Calmare® Therapy, please click here.

Who is a candidate for treatment?

Patients who are willing to make any necessary changes in lifestyle to protect their lower back may be candidates for treatment, which can range from hot and cold applications, rehabilitative exercise programs and bed rest.

What is the recovery process?

The recovery can last a few days to a few months depending on your age and the severity of your condition. However, there are several things you can do to help the healing process and prevent low back pain from occurring altogether. These include exercising for 30 minutes a day, particularly following long periods of inactivity; stretching; sleeping on firm surfaces; avoid lifting heavy objects by yourself; sleeping on your side; not smoking; and maintaining a healthy, well-balanced diet.

Patients are under medical management during the recovery phase with an emphasis on minimizing and reducing pharmaceutical usage.
