Our team at Pain Control Associates has years of experience in the field of helping patients cope with chronic pain conditions. Our trio can assist with non-surgical and surgical options for a range of musculoskeletal pain including back and neck pain and headaches. Our Pain Management Physicians are here to guide patients through best steps customized to each individual’s pain problems and conditions. They can work through physical therapy and the use of medications as needed. At the end of the day, they are striving to ensure the best possible outcomes that lead to the highest quality of life and level of function.
Chronic pain can be the result of an automobile injury, work-related injury or Sciatica or Neuropathy. Why pain is happening may not always be clear, but our professional pain physicians can assist with any chronic pain as well as neck and back pain. Our doctor offers epidural injection, which focuses on the space surrounding the spinal cord and nerves. A steroid medication can help calm this area and work to reduce inflammation, pain, tingling or numbness. The injections vary from person to person regarding pain during the procedure and how long benefits may last. Focusing on weight reduction, stretching and an exercise program can help extend the benefits as well.
Back pain is another common condition that our team can assist patients with today. Your back may have been affected by a herniated or slipped disc, overall general inflammation, athletic injury or degenerative joint disease, such as osteoarthritis. Sometimes, a small tweak can lead to more issues down the road that our team can address.
Understand that we will assess your pain and put together a strategy as part of your comprehensive care plan. We will have you fill out new patient forms that detail what we need to know to evaluate your condition and find the treatment to help you live your best life. A holistic approach to your health will always be the best path to find relief for any pain issues.
At the first appointment, we will take the time to discuss exactly where and the type of pain you are experiencing, any injuries that you have sustained, your overall lifestyle and health history and what has led you to us today for pain reduction assistance. A thorough physical exam will be needed as well as possible tests to help determine the best course of action. We have many locations right here in the Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland region to best serve you and for your convenience.
An individualized treatment plan begins with an initial visit and full diagnosis examination. We strive to provide the most effective and efficient pain reduction methods for you to find pain relief. Contact us today.
