The team of physicians at Pain Control Associates focus on helping patients manage pain that has become chronic and affects the quality of their daily lives. Pain that is caused by such conditions as sciatica is what the doctors can help patients manage and control as much as possible. Our doctors also work with individuals who have been affected by injuries from an accident or work-related injury. This can be pain in the back or neck as well as neuropathy, which is damage to the nerves. When nerves are damaged, they can relay incorrect messages or no messages that can be felt as pain or numbness around the body.
An auto accident is scary enough on its own, but when there are lingering after-effects, such as pain, it is even more stressful. Our doctors recommend that anyone involved in an accident and suffering from pain should try to receive initial treatment relatively quickly. The first visit will examine what is happening and strive to control pain and diminish swelling. Trying to get on top of any injury issues early on can prevent long-term health effects from the accident. Besides possible knee pain, whiplash is a common result of an accident. This is when the head is snapped back and forth quickly as can occur during the impact of an accident.
Whiplash affects the neck and needs to be looked at by an expert quickly as there can be long-term effects. Symptoms often include neck stiffness and pain, loss of range of motion, headaches, dizziness, fatigue or tenderness in the shoulder or upper back areas. We will work with you on an individualized pain approach plan that may include nerve blocks or trigger point injections. Anti-inflammatory or neuropathic medications may also help and physical therapy.
Acute and sudden pain signals a problem and injury and needs pretty immediate attention. Chronic pain is tricky as the cause may be unknown and it can last months or even years. At Pain Control Associates, our physicians specialize in helping our patients manage pain that has not gone away. Chronic pain is believed to be a result of oversensitivity in the messaging system in your body’s nerves or spinal cord. You can feel pain that has no reason behind it.
We work with a variety of ways to help you live your best life everyday. Treatments may include medicine, therapy, behavior modification, biofeedback and possibly surgery. During your first appointment, we will gather all of your information to put together a management plan.
Our team of doctors continues to serve our communities through five locations. When you are ready to discuss your symptoms, contact us through our online form.
