Chronic Pain

A compassionate responsible approach allows for individual treatment plans. No one wants to have pain from physical, mental or emotional. Each patient has unique needs and may require different treatment options. While pain medicine specialists may offer several treatment options for patients to consider, including medications, epidural steroid injections, and nerve blocks.

Sciatica or Radiculopathy

Shooting back, buttock, and or leg pain is experienced by more than 80% of adults. If this pain is severe and lasts more than 6 weeks further diagnostic evaluation and treatment should be considered. Sciatica is most commonly caused by degenerative arthritis in the lumbar spine that leads to pinching of nerves just before they exit the spine to travel to muscles in the legs. This arthritis can cause conditions such as disc herniations, spinal stenosis, and foraminal stenosis. Various methods are used for treatment. Sciatica specifically refers to the nerve pain (radiculopathy) that migrates down the low back, hip, buttock and or leg. When this occurs in the neck it causes cervical radiculopathy which sends pain in the neck, shoulder, and arm.

Spinal Disc Herniation

Spinal discs are made up of two parts. The annulus is a tough lining around the shock absorbing center of the disc called the nucleus. Through various combinations of injury including work, trauma, gravity and age traumatic or degenerative processes can lead to disc herniations or protrusions. Many people suffer from disc herniation causing local back pain or sciatica and most are self resolving. A smaller amount will require additional therapies such as physical therapy, chiropractic care or injections. An even smaller amount will require surgery. When surgery is needed we focus on choosing Minimally Invasive Surgery whenever possible. Disc herniations occur throughout the spine but are most common in the lumbar and cervical spine.…More

Spinal Stenosis

Narrowing or stenosis of the spine occurs most commonly in the cervical and lumbar spine. This most commonly develops slowly over months and years. It can contribute to compression or pinching upon the spinal cord or nerves. Pinching on the spinal cord causes myelopathy which produces unsteadiness of gait and can progress to being wheelchair bound or paralysis. Narrowing of the foramen or lateral recess of the spine typically pinches nerve(s) which create pain most commonly known as sciatica or radiculopathy. This can be self limiting or even require surgery if not resolved. Narrowing of the central canal in the lumbar spine can cause neurogenic claudication which is improved by leaning forward while walking, for example leaning forward on a grocery cart. …More

Trigeminal Neuralgia

Shooting Facial Pain

Trigeminal neuralgia or “tic douloureux” is some of the worst pain ever. It is characterized as an electrical sharp shooting pain across the face following the course of the trigeminal nerve. It is often initially mistaken for a tooth problem. The pain occurs in paroxysms, which last from a few seconds to minutes. The frequency of the paroxysms ranges from a few to hundreds per day. Remission can last for months to years, but will become shorter to non-existent over time. ….More

PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric condition that can occur when someone has seen or lived through trauma. The trauma may be an event that is shocking, scary, or dangerous such as sexual assault, an accident causing physical injury, a life-threatening event, being involved in combat situations, or being exposed to mass conflict. Long-term trauma, such as childhood trauma, may also cause PTSD. In addition, symptoms of PTSD can be seen in people who are supporting loved ones who experienced the trauma, and in those who repeatedly see or hear about traumatic events, such as police officers and rescue workers. …More
