Pain Management Q & A
What is pain management?
If you live with chronic pain, every day can be a struggle. Fortunately, the team at Integrated Neurology Services can help. They offer interventional pain management treatments to help you overcome chronic pain and return to your normal routine, even if medications and conventional treatments have failed.
What conditions require pain management?
The team at Integrated Neurology Services treats a wide range of conditions that cause chronic pain, including:
Radicular pain originates in the spine and radiates along a nerve. You may feel radicular pain as a shooting sensation down your leg or arm. Sciatica, which involves pain that radiates from the low back to the buttock and leg, is a common example of radicular pain. Spinal stenosis and herniated discs are common causes of radicular pain.
The cartilage discs in your neck and back that provide cushioning between the bones of your spine can degenerate or rupture, leading to pain. Spinal disc problems are a common cause of low back and neck pain.
Facet joint pain
Also known as facet joint syndrome, this common cause of chronic neck and low back pain can be difficult to diagnose with imaging studies alone. The team at Integrated Neurology Services uses diagnostic injections and radiofrequency ablation to provide relief from facet joint pain in your neck and back.
Sacroiliac (SI) joint pain
SI joint dysfunction is a common cause of pain in the low back and rear hip. Diagnostic and therapeutic joint injections can manage this painful condition.
Hip joint pain
Hip pain may result from a problem in the leg, back, hip, or groin. The first step is to determine the source of the pain with imaging procedures and diagnostic injections.
What are common pain management procedures?
The team at Integrated Neurology Services uses advanced image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat pain. Depending on your specific condition, they may use one or more of the following pain-management procedures:
- Medial branch blocks
- Medial branch neurotomy (radiofrequency ablation)
- Transforaminal epidural steroid injections
- Diagnostic and therapeutic selective nerve root blocks
- Diagnostic and therapeutic intra-articular SI joint and hip joint injections
