Default back pain

We have numerous patients in our practice that develop back pain about half way into the infusion. This resolves about the time the laser is done. It is quite severe in some people and we have been premedicating them with Vicodin 1 hour prior to the infusion. One of my physicians has heard about giving something like xylocaine with the infusion. I have not been able to find any information on this. Have any trials been done or is anyone trying anything that has been successful?
