Chesterton Chronic Pain Management

Chesterton Chronic Pain Management Begins with a Conversation

Patients who face chronic pain every day are looking for guidance on how to live their best lives. At Pain Control Associates, our team of doctors finds that an open and honest discussion is the first step to helping patients find their path to pain management. During your initial appointment, we will listen carefully to your description of the pain that is affecting your daily life. We will want to know about any injuries, especially if they were recent, as well as your lifestyle, habits and health history. All of these components will help us determine what tests you may need and what may be the best strategy for your pain management.

Chesterton Chronic Back or Neck Pain Management

Being pain specialists requires active listening, years of experience and expert knowledge. We see many patients with back pain that does not go away and persists for weeks. When back pain begins to affect daily activities, it really is time to seek out an expert. The source of pain can be around the muscles and bones of your spine and be from an injury, condition, fracture, tumor or infection. For example, osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that can cause back pain. If you have twisted or tweaked your back from exercise or heavy lifting, inflammation can also occur and cause pain. Depending on the source of the issue, treatments can range from physical therapy and massage therapy to medications and holistic practices.

Neck pain is another leading cause of chronic pain. Pinched nerves can result from shifted neck vertebrae. This can happen from poor posture, whiplash, sleeping wrong, herniated disk or neck overreach. Beyond medication or physical therapy, chronic neck pain can also be treated with nerve blocks or lifestyle modifications. Besides pain that will not go away, if you cannot turn your head in a full range of motion due to pain, you should seek help. Also, tingling in your hands or decreased circulation should spur you to make an appointment to see a professional.

Chesterton Chronic Pain Management for Your Neuropathy

Nerve damage can lead to complications down the road when incorrect or no messages are relayed to your brain and spinal cord. You can have pain with no known source or widespread numbness. A single nerve or multiple nerves can be damaged. A physical exam can help diagnose the condition to plan a pain management strategy. Pinpointing the cause of the nerve damage can help with treatment as well as medication.
