Spine Injections VS. SoftWave Therapy: Lower Back Pain due to Disc Herniation and Degenerative Disc Disease

Published October 23rd, 2023 by Dr. Sam Camarata

Lower back pain stemming from lumbar disc herniations and degenerative disc disease can be incredibly debilitating. Fortunately, there are several treatment options available to address this issue, including spine injections and SoftWave Therapy. In this blog, we will delve deep into both treatment approaches, highlighting the benefits of SoftWave Therapy as a superior and conservative alternative for lasting lower back pain relief.

Understanding Lower Back Pain: 

Lumbar Disc Herniations and Degenerative Disc Disease

Lower back pain often results from lumbar disc herniations or degenerative disc disease. Lumbar disc herniation occurs when the soft inner core of a disc protrudes through its outer layer, potentially compressing nearby spinal nerves. Degenerative disc disease, on the other hand, is a condition characterized by the gradual wear and tear of the spinal discs, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.

Spine Injections: A Traditional Approach

Epidural Steroid Injections: These injections deliver corticosteroids directly into the epidural space to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain temporarily.

Facet Joint Injections: Administered into the facet joints, these injections aim to reduce pain arising from the small joints in the spine.

Sacroiliac Joint Injections: These injections target the sacroiliac joints, which can be a source of lower back pain.

While spine injections can provide temporary relief, they often come with limitations and potential side effects, such as infection, nerve damage, and the risk of overuse. Moreover, they may not address the root cause of the pain, offering only short-term respite.

SoftWave Therapy: A Revolutionary Alternative

SoftWave Therapy is emerging as a groundbreaking and conservative alternative for lower back pain due to lumbar disc herniations,  degenerative disc disease and sacroiliac pain. 

Here's why it's gaining traction as the superior choice:

Pain Relief and Inflammation Reduction: 

SoftWave Therapy employs electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves to target and alleviate pain and inflammation effectively.

Enhanced Blood Flow and Circulation: 

The therapy promotes improved blood flow to the affected area, facilitating natural healing and tissue regeneration.

Stem Cell Activation:

SoftWave Therapy stimulates the body's stem cells, triggering tissue repair and regeneration, which is pivotal for herniated disc and degenerative disc disease recovery.

Non-Invasive and Non-Injection: 

SoftWave Therapy offers a non-invasive, non-surgical, and non-injection approach, significantly reducing the risks associated with spine injections.

Lasting Relief: 

Unlike spine injections, which offer temporary respite, SoftWave Therapy is designed to address the root cause of the pain, potentially providing long-lasting relief.

Choosing the Superior Option: SoftWave Therapy

While spine injections may have their place in pain management, SoftWave Therapy is redefining the treatment landscape for lower back pain due to lumbar disc herniations, degenerative disc disease and sacroiliac joint pain. By addressing pain and inflammation, promoting blood flow, stimulating stem cell activation, and offering a non-invasive approach, SoftWave Therapy stands as the superior choice for those seeking lasting relief without the risks and limitations associated with injections.

When faced with the challenges of lower back pain caused by lumbar disc herniations, degenerative disc disease and sacroiliac pain, it's crucial to explore the treatment options available. Spine injections may offer temporary relief, but SoftWave Therapy, with its ability to address the root cause of the pain and provide lasting relief, is emerging as the preferred and conservative alternative
