Back Pain

Back pain is the number one cause of disability around the globe. At Integrated Pain Consultants, our pain management approach is geared towards both chronic and acute conditions.

Compression fractures can be debilitating, but Dr. Nikesh Seth specializes in treating back pain safely and effectively.

Dr. Nikesh Seth treats both chronic pain and acute pain, but which one is “worse?” It’s often whichever pain a patient is experiencing, but chronic pain has the ability to wear down the patient over time—physically, mentally and emotionally.

Studies show that the majority of American adults live with back pain without seeking treatment, but Dr. Nikesh Seth wants clients to know that drug-free options are available. At Integrated Pain Consultants, radiofrequency ablation is one of the most popular choices for chronic back pain. It works by targeting the nerves that are sending pain signals to the brain. By...
