Few things are worse than being forced to go through life in constant pain. Simple tasks instantly become a major problem because you have to fight through the pain. While most pain will go away after a short period of time, this will not happen if you are suffering from chronic pain. If your pain has lasted for at least six months, then you are dealing with chronic pain. Fortunately, certain chronic pain treatments can instantly help improve the quality of your life.
There are several different chronic pain treatments that can provide excellent relief for your chronic pain. These treatments can reduce some of the inflammation in the body. Most of these types of treatments will only provide temporary relief to your symptoms. The pain relief may last between one month to one year, depending on the situation. Medication is a great way to reduce your chronic pain. But you have to make sure to avoid taking more medication than prescribed because certain types can be very addictive when abused.
Other types of chronic pain treatments aim to effectively destroy the nerves that send pain signals to the brain. If these nerves are unable to work properly, then your body will not know it is in pain. This type of treatment may be used to treat pain in your hip, knee, neck or lower back. It may also be used to eliminate the pain associated with arthritis and neuropathy. Since this is not a dangerous procedure, you will be able to return for another treatment session once your chronic pain returns.
One of our favorite chronic pain treatments includes dorsal column stimulation, which uses low voltage electricity to lessen the pain. This treatment is performed in the comfort of our office and can provide pain relief for up to 12 months, in many cases.
You can schedule a consultation with us at Innovative Spine to learn more about the chronic pain treatments that we have available. It is important to understand that treatments for chronic pain are not one-size-fits-all. We oftentimes use a combination approach in order to bring about relief. And sometimes, it takes a trial-and-error method.
