How to Relieve Back Pain

How to relieve back painIf you’re wondering how to relieve nagging back pain, you’re not alone. Back pain affects millions of Americans of various ages and activity levels. Thankfully, residents of the Nashville, Tennessee, area can turn to The Spine Center at Precision Pain Care to find meaningful relief from severe or chronic back pain. Our practice was founded and is led by Dr. Graf Hilgenhurst, a board-certified pain medicine specialist and anesthesiologist who performs innovative, minimally invasive spine procedures. The former president of the Tennessee Society of Interventional Pain Physicians and a faculty member of several professional societies, Dr. Hilgenhurst offers the latest developments in care to the patients he serves.

The spine is an incredibly complex structure that bears the weight of the upper body and facilitates motion. Because of its vital role in everyday movement, the spine is susceptible to a variety of uncomfortable conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Herniated discs
  • Bone spurs
  • Sciatica
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Facet syndrome
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Fractures
  • Nerve root compression

At Precision Pain Care in Nashville, TN, we take a personalized approach to back pain relief that focuses on the individual needs of every patient. Rather than resorting to potentially addictive narcotics or a never-ending regimen of chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Hilgenhurst offers innovative spine procedures that either address the source of the pain or block pain signals from reaching the brain. These procedures are performed using advanced fluoroscopic guidance to enhance surgical precision, and may enable some patients to avoid traditional open spine surgery.
