Pain can permeate our lives and cause our daily routines to be a struggle. At Pain Control Associates, our team of physicians can review your options and help you enjoy every day. We focus on non-surgical ways to manage pain from a range of conditions, such as sciatica, as well as injuries related to a work accident or auto accident. Our physicians are trained and board-certified to ensure that you are receiving top-notch treatment in chronic pain management. We are honored to serve our region and communities in the Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland areas.
Our expert physicians approach each patient as an individual who has been affected by pain in some way. We understand how much quality of life can be interrupted by chronic pain or acute pain conditions. Our own Dr. Adlaka is double board-certified in anesthesia and pain management and is considered an expert in our field on a national platform. We will discuss with you exactly what pain you are dealing with and where is the source and go over your non-surgical and surgical options. We work with patients who have neck or back pain, neuropathy, or individuals who have been injured in an accident who are still facing pain.
For instance, the source of neck or back pain can be vertebrae shifting out of alignment and pinching nerves. If this does not go away, you may benefit from medical injections and nerve blocks. They can reduce swelling and ease your back pain. Our team also deals with patients facing neuropathy, which is when nerves break down or misfire. When you face this condition, you can have pain when there is not a source or issue to prompt it or on the opposite side, no pain even when something is wrong. Injuries, competitive use or certain diseases can all cause neuropathy.
While your condition may not have a cure, we are here to help you find the best possible path toward chronic pain management on a daily basis. Our team has many tools to find the best fit to control your pain, no matter what the source. Your treatment plan may include medicines, surgery, behavior modification or electrical stimulation. An epidural injection with a medication such as cortisone may help reduce inflammation, pain, tingling or numbness in the nerves in this area. Pain relief can start right away or within a week of injection and may last months, depending on the patient. Along with this type of treatment, our team may also recommend exercise and stretching as well as weight management.
We are ready to help you on your pain management journey. It begins with a consultation and conversation about your lifestyle, pain and previous injuries. Contact us online.
