98 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 8.16 Special Advertising Section dermatologylouisville.com kencombsrunningstore.com Doctors Jason Lewis and Kyle Young with Commonwealth Pain Associates offer hope for chronic back and neck pain Chances are, at some point in life, you will experience back pain to some degree. It may be acute or chronic. There is a high likelihood that it is a result of facet arthritis. Facet joints are the "knee" joints of the spine, extending on both sides of the spine from the base of your skull to your low back. They allow your neck and low back to move and bend. Just like any other joint in your body, they endure wear and tear and are susceptible to developing arthritis. Pain is typically elicited by bending and twisting at the waist. First line treatments include anti- inflammatories, physical therapy, chiropractic care and possibly low dose pain medications. For those patients who do not respond to these types of treatment, Commonwealth Pain Associates' second line of treatment includes Radiofrequency Ablation. This minimally invasive procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Its high success rate is attributed to careful patient selection with the use of diagnostic nerve blocks prior to the ablation. Ultimately, this treatment can provide lasting relief for chronic neck and back pain sufferers.
