Failed Back Syndrome Treatment in Dallas-Fort Worth
Failed Back Syndrome refers to chronic back and/or leg pain that occurs after back surgery, typically post-laminectomy.
The most common symptom of failed back surgery syndrome is persistent chronic pain that is not related to normal healing. Other symptoms of FBSS include:
- Pain experienced at new location on the spine above or below initial surgery area
- Inability to fully heal and recuperate post-surgery
- Limited spinal mobility post-surgery
- Sharp or stabbing back pain in the spine
- Diffuse, radiating and/or aching pain in the back and/or legs
- Sharp, pricking, and stabbing pain in the extremities
- Back spasms
Treatment Options for Failed Back Syndrome
- Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections. Epidural steroid injections deliver medication directly (or as close as possible to) the source of pain generation.
- Nerve blocks. Injecting an anesthetic close to the nerves sending pain signals.
- Radiofrequency neurotomy. Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive procedure typically performed using local anesthetic and mild sedation to relieve pain.
- Electrical neurostimulation. Electrical stimulation to targeted sites of the body to alter nerve activity.
- Intrathecal drug delivery. Intrathecal drug delivery, or “pain pump,” is a method of giving medication directly to your spinal cord.
