Innovative Treatment Options for Chronic & Acute Pain
Pain is more than just a symptom. It is a condition in and of itself, often necessitating specialized treatment from a medical expert. Many different health conditions can result in either chronic pain, which is persistent, or acute pain, which, while temporary, can last for months. At Pinnacle Pain Management, we offer extensive treatment options for various pain-related conditions.
Epidural Steroid Injection
Epidural steroid injections treat conditions such as sciatica, herniated discs, and spinal stenosis. The procedure involves injecting a steroid medication into the epidural space of the spinal cord, reducing inflammation and relieving pain.
While highly effective, some patients may experience temporary side effects like flushing, insomnia, or anxiety.
Facet Joint Injection
Facet joint injections are used to treat arthritis in the spine, back injury, and neck pain. The procedure involves injecting a steroid or numbing agent into the small joints along each vertebra’s sides.
This procedure can provide pain relief while helping us diagnose the condition from which it derives.
Intrathecal Pump Implant
An intrathecal pump implant is a treatment option for chronic pain conditions like cancer pain and failed back surgery syndrome. A pump is implanted under the skin to deliver pain medication directly into the intrathecal space around the spinal cord.
This procedure is invasive but offers targeted, long-lasting relief.
Lumbar Sympathetic Block
A lumbar sympathetic block treats conditions like complex regional pain syndrome and reflex sympathetic dystrophy. An anesthetic is injected near the lumbar region to block the sympathetic nerves.
The benefits include immediate pain relief, but the effects are temporary.
Nerve Block Treatment
Nerve Block Treatments are used for various conditions, such as migraines and chronic regional pain syndrome. A local anesthetic is injected to block pain signals along a specific nerve pathway.
While generally safe, some patients may experience temporary numbness or weakness following the procedure.
Spinal Cord Stimulator Therapy
For patients with chronic pain conditions like neuropathy and post-laminectomy syndrome, spinal cord stimulator therapy can provide relief. It involves implanting a device that sends electrical signals to the spinal cord, disrupting pain signals.
The implantation procedure is invasive and has more potential complications than other treatment options that we offer, but many patients experience significant relief.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
PRP therapy can treat conditions like arthritis and tendonitis. It involves injecting a patient’s plasma to promote healing and reduce inflammation.
This procedure is generally safe and uses the body’s natural healing process, but results can vary from person to person.
Kyphoplasty is used to treat painful vertebral compression fractures. The procedure involves inflating a balloon in the damaged vertebrae and filling it with medical-grade cement.
It can provide immediate pain relief and restore vertebral height. However, like any surgical procedure, it carries risks, including infection and cement leakage.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is a promising treatment option for pain management, as it can regenerate damaged tissue and reduce inflammation. It involves harvesting stem cells from the patient’s body and injecting them into the affected area.
While results vary from person to person, many patients have reported significant relief in pain symptoms after undergoing stem cell therapy. The procedure is also minimally invasive.
