Facing sudden pain from an injury or accident or chronic pain from conditions such as migraines, can really affect your mindset and daily life. Our team of physicians at Pain Control Associates focuses on ways to relieve your pain that are non-surgical for a range of issues, including neck pain, back pain and headaches. We will begin with a discussion of the pain that you are facing and where as well as an overall health assessment to review the next best steps and pain treatment options. We will need to know about any previous injuries or diagnoses as well as your overall lifestyle and the main reason that you are seeking care.
Many people will face back pain at one time or another as it is a very common pain complaint. Temporary pain from too much exercise or an injury is expected, but what if your pain is persistent and has lasted for a week or more and has interrupted your daily life? Then it is time to be evaluated to see what is going on and how your pain can be treated and eased. Back pain can be the result of inflammation if you have twisted your back or were lifting heavy objects with the wrong muscles. Of course, athletic injuries and an injury from exercise can also spur low back pain. A herniated or slipped disc is when the cartilage discs between your vertebrae slip out of place. Your back pain may also be caused by osteoarthritis.
Once we determine the source of your back pain, we will discuss with you what will work best to alleviate the pain and what path is the best. Our team of physicians may recommend physical therapy, medications or other holistic practices.
Chronic pain is just that – pain that is chronic and does not go away. Sometimes there is not an exact reason for the pain as it can be linked to nerves that continue to fire after an initial injury or issue. Even if the original source of pain has been fixed, your nerves are still picking up signals. Reasons for chronic pain can also be headaches, low back strain, arthritis and nerve damage. As there is not an exact reason for pain to be chronic, it is thought that pain messaging keeps occurring. Our team approaches chronic pain with a compassionate perspective. We can examine electric stimulation, biofeedback, relaxation techniques, psychotherapy and behavior modification as ways to handle and live with this type of condition.
