PAIN TREATMENT

If you experience mild to severe pain that does not go away, pain that is described as stinging, burning, aching, electrical, or a constant feeling of stiffness, tightness or general discomfort, then you may benefit from treatment.

The most common issues originate from headaches, joint pain, injury pain (such as a car accident or fall), and backache. However, pain can also be a result of conditions including: fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel, osteoarthritis, sciatica, spinal stenosis and tendonitis.

Our team of healthcare providers have extensive knowledge and experience in treating the following conditions: 

Possible Causes of Pain

Below are conditions that have been improved with pain management
  • Fibromyalgia is a group of signs and symptoms that involve pain in muscles, tendons, ligaments and other soft tissues. Fibromyalgia affects up to 3% of the population, with women making up 85% of all diagnoses. Some medical professionals suggest that it is a complicated combination of related sleep disorders, endocrine and neurotransmitter imbalances and emotional states. Patients eventually develop tender points that are distributed all over the body, but concentrate around the neck, shoulders and lower back.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or CTS is often seen in people that perform repetitive movements for several hours a day every day, usually in the workplace. CTS symptoms affect the thumb, index finger and half of the ring finger. They include tingling, pins and needles, burning, shooting pains, intermittent numbness and weakness in the affected hand.
  • Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It occurs with wear and tear, causing the protective cartilage on the end of your bones to wear down over time. It can affect any joint; however it usually affects the hands, neck, lower back, knees and hips. Symptoms of Osteoarthritis include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, loss of flexibility, grating sensation and/or bone spurs.
  • Spinal Stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal, the open space in the spine that holds the spinal cord. The symptoms of Spinal Stenosis include pain, numbness, tingling of the skin and loss of motor control.
  • Tendonitis is usually recognized with pain and stiffness and in acute stages, heat and swelling will occur. It involves injury and inflammation of the tendinous tissues and can be sometimes confused with strains and sprains, but will cause more intense pain.
  • Auto Accidents What may seem like an even a minor auto accident could potentially cause months or years of discomfort if not properly treated. Whiplash is a broad term used to refer to a mixture of injuries and can leave you with neck, lower back, arm and leg pain.
  • Disc Degeneration is one of the most common causes of low back pain, and is generally made worse with sitting, bending, lifting or twisting. The loss of fluid in your discs or tiny tears and cracks in the outer layers of your discs can account for this pain. These changes frequently occur in people who smoke cigarettes, do heavy physical work or have had a sudden injury (usually a fall).
  • Sciatica your sciatic nerve is the thickest nerve in your body and runs through the back of your leg. Pain from Sciatica is felt in the lower back, buttock or various parts of the leg or foot. It can also cause numbness and/or tingling, resulting in difficulty moving or controlling the affected leg.
