Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain affects almost 80% of Americans, and it doesn’t discriminate between men or women. It is a leading cause of job-related disabilities and absences. Back pain can diminish on its own, but many people suffer from chronic back pain. Many of Dr. Puppala’s patients suffer from lower back pain, but he is able to relieve their pain through numerous multidisciplinary approaches. One example is with the use of Radiofrequency Ablation. Dr. Puppala specializes in this procedure that uses heat from a medium frequency alternating current to resolve pain. An advantage of Radiofrequency Ablation is that it can often be done without the use of a general anesthetic.
