HSS Explains How Interventional Pain Specialists can Help Ease Back Pain

Paramus Daily Voice—August 2, 2016

In a recent article published by Paramus Daily Voice, Semih Gungor, MD, an anesthesiologist at Hospital for Special Surgery, provides an in-depth overview of the role of interventional pain specialists for treating back pain in the first of his two-part series. 

Dr. Gungor explains that, "Our spine is a complex structure with many types of pain generators. Everybody experiences neck or back pain, at some point. Most often, there are simple reasons for this pain, such as overuse injuries. Fortunately, in most cases, pain lessens on its own in a few days. Brief rest, activity modification and simple over- the-counter pain medications may be all you need. However, if the pain does not improve after 4-7 days, further investigation by a clinician may be required."
