Living with pain is frustrating and stressful. You can address your chronic pain conditions with the help of experts in the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana region. Our physicians at Pain Control Associates work with patients on the best surgical and non-surgical options to ease their pain. Our team has worked with community members facing pain in their backs or necks, with neuropathy, a work-related injury, sciatica or those hurt in an accident. We begin our process with a health exam and questions, so that we can understand what has happened in the past and what may help ease your pain today.
Headaches may be the cause of your chronic pain that you are hoping to receive relief for today. Chronic pain is different from acute pain, which is the signal to your mind that something is wrong, such as an injury. Acute pain will go away after the issue has been resolved, while chronic pain is just that – chronic. These pain signals can last for weeks, months or even years. Perhaps the initial cause was an injury or infection, but the pain may keep going. When pain continues like this long after the original cause is cleared up, there is no firm explanation. It is believed that the ner messaging system may be extra sensitive prompting pain signals for issues that are not really there. Your brain feels pain that is not really present.
Our doctors will work on a treatment that can help ease the feeling of your head pain that seems to persist for periods of time. We will hear all about your pain and concerns before we create a plan to get you back on track to a more pain-free life. Treatments may include medication, surgery, electrical stimulation, relaxation, meditation therapy or behavior modification.
Our team of doctors can also work with patients who need help with sciatica or neuropathy or injuries after an auto accident. Neuropathy is nerve damage where incorrect messages are being relayed to your brain and spinal cord. Single nerves or multiple nerves can be affected. A physical exam that includes nerve tests, blood tests or CT scans can help lead to a diagnosis and treatment. Sciatica occurs when there is compression of the sciatic nerve. Even though the pain originates in the lower back, it can travel down your legs and interrupt your daily life. Other systems are burning, numbness or tingling that can be felt down your legs. Physical therapy and spinal interventions can help.
We are ready to help you down a new path to a more pain-free life. We will start your treatment plan as soon as possible. Reach out to us through our online contact form for assistance.
