Have you ever tried to complete a task, only to experience sudden, searing back pain? If so, you’re not alone. According to the Health Policy Institute, approximately 65 million Americans have recently gone through some form of back pain. Meanwhile, 16 million Americans experience chronic back pain.
When left unaddressed, back pain can interfere with your ability to work, sleep and complete daily activities. To achieve relief, many people turn to surgical solutions. Unfortunately, these come with an array of downsides. In addition to being intrusive, surgery often has long recovery times — not to mention, it doesn’t work for everybody.
Due to the pitfalls associated with surgery, more and more people are looking for alternative back pain treatment. That’s where our team comes in. At Midwest Anesthesia and Pain Specialists (MAPS), we offer a team of certified specialists that use interventional medicine to deliver pain relief. Let’s take a closer look at the MAPS approach and its unique benefits.
There’s no universal experience when it comes to back pain. For some people, pain comes and goes and is limited to a certain area. For others, pain affects the entire back and lasts for weeks on end. That’s why, instead of providing a single treatment, we offer customized solutions based on every patient’s needs. After reviewing your medical history and symptoms, we’ll create a plan specifically for you. Treatments may involve the following:
- Injection-based therapy
- Minimally invasive procedures
- Physical therapy
- Responsible medication management
- Bracing and support
We provide a wide range of therapies and procedures, as well as hands-on physical therapy and support. Many patients receive multiple treatment types simultaneously, all of which are geared towards achieving long-term relief.
To help ensure as many patients as possible get the help they need, we work with most major insurances. We also expedite paperwork, giving both you and our team more time to focus on what’s important: getting results.
At MAPS, we always put the patient first. Along with personalized treatment plans, we offer an experienced, results-oriented staff that’s dedicated to helping patients overcome pain. Every member of our team, including our double-board certified doctors and fellowship trained MAPS, cares deeply about preventing unnecessary, chronic pain.
Whether you’re new to back pain or have been battling it for years, you can count on us to devise a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Our remarkable patient advocacy has helped us become one of the most trusted names in Interventional Pain Medicine across Chicago.
