Facing chronic pain or any type of pain can truly interrupt your daily life and cause stress and anxiety. Our team of physicians at Pain Control Associates have dedicated our careers to helping our community members in the Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland region ease their pain and manage it as best as possible. We take a comprehensive and customized approach to helping you manage your pain and coming up with a strategy that may incorporate different tools. We work with our patients one-on-one to help them be happier and healthier every day. We understand the toll that facing life in pain can take and work to bring you as much relief as possible.
While the occasional aches, pains and strains in your back are normal and expected, when pain persists, it is time to see our physicians. If you are facing back pain after an accident or injury at work, we can help you determine the next best steps. Other reasons for back pain can be a slipped disc, which is when the cartilage between your vertebrae becomes out of place. Another reason for back pain may be inflammation that is caused by using your back muscles incorrectly or too much. Of course, sports injuries or athletic injuries can also cause discomfort in your back. If you have chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia or osteoarthritis, you may face back pain every day or most days.
When you come to our offices for an appointment for your back pain, we will first take a thorough health history review. This will help us determine if there is a particular source of your pain that needs to be addressed and worked on. We will ask you about any past injuries or accidents. We will do a physical exam as well and may recommend tests to help us see what is going on. Once we have a good idea of why you are feeling pain, we can put together a pain management strategy. This may include medicine, physical therapy, holistic practices, behavioral therapy and more.
Our team of physicians also works with patients who have chronic pain conditions. This may be from headaches, arthritis, nerve damage or strains. Sometimes an exact cause of chronic pain will not be determined. Even so, we will still find a way to help you live more pain-free with a mix of approaches and treatments. We may recommend relaxation techniques, electrical stimulation, biofeedback or psychotherapy. Combining different treatments is often the best way to deal with chronic pain that interrupts your life.
