Management of Mediation
Our pain specialists can help you manage your pain by prescribing and monitoring the medications you take. The pain management professionals will arm you with the information you need to correctly administer your medications.
When it comes to medication management, the Pain Center takes a cautious approach. To avoid becoming addicted to prescription medications, we attempt to keep them to a minimum.
Injection of steroid
Injections of a steroid, which can help reduce pain and inflammation, are one option for managing pain. Arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis can all benefit from this.
A nerve block is a type of injectable therapy that relieves nerve discomfort. This may be useful in the treatment of arm discomfort, radicular pain, and/or peripheral neuropathy. For maximum pain relief, a combination of local anaesthetic drugs are injected around the peripheral nerve branches. Depending on the patient’s condition, peripheral nerve blocks provide relief that lasts anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
Stimulation Of the Spinal Cord
The insertion of a nerve stimulation device is required for spinal cord stimulation, which is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive operation. This treatment uses low-voltage electrical currents to target specific parts of the spine, decreasing pain signals generated by persistent arm discomfort (s). This surgery may be appropriate for patients with persistent pain who have not responded to conservative therapies for at least six months. Before a permanent device is considered, a trial device is implanted.
