What We Treat

 

 

                                                                    We Treat Pain and Specialize in Chronic Pain

If you are you suffering from persistent pain that has lasted for months or even longer, you might be suffering from Chronic Pain

Pain, is your body’s normal reaction to an injury or illness, a warning that something is wrong. When your body heals, you usually stop hurting.

But for many people, pain continues long after its cause is gone. When it lasts for 3 to 6 months or more, it’s called chronic pain. When you hurt day after day, it can take a toll on your emotional and physical health

Chronic pain can be caused by a musculoskeletal injury (involving the bones, muscles, or joints), nervous system dysfunction, chronic diseases, and autoimmune disorders

Conditions  We often Treat;

                                                                                                       Chronic Back Pain

Often occurring in the lower back, the pain may be caused by an injury or develop progressively due to arthritis, osteoporosis, or normal wear and tear.

Common causes of chronic back pain that we treat are;

  • Slipped or bulging discs, typically caused by twisting or lifting injuries
  • Spinal Stenosis, involving the narrowing of the spinal canal and compression of nerves
  • Compression fractures, commonly associated with osteoporosis
  • Soft-tissue damage caused by strain or trauma to back muscles, ligaments, or tendons
  • Spinal fractures
  • Structural deformities such as scoliosis (the abnormal sideways curvature of the spine) or lordosis (the excessive inward curvature of the lower back)

Chronic Headaches

A chronic headache is one that occurs about 10- 15 days per month for no less than three consecutive months. The most common types of chronic headaches we treat are:

  • Tension headaches, caused by stress, fatigue, or sleeping wrong
  • Eye strain headaches, caused when the ocular muscles become strained
  • Migraines, caused by nervous system triggers or hormonal irregularities
  • Cluster headaches, caused by the enlargement of blood vessels in the head

                                                                                          Chronic Joint Pain

Joint pain, typically caused by injury, infection, or advancing age.

Some of the more common types of chronic joint pain we treat are;

  • Osteoarthritis, common in the elderly and usually affecting the larger joints
  • Rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disorder which causes swelling of the joint spaces
  • Repetitive motion injury, common in athletes and people who do repetitive physical activities
  • Bursitis, caused by swelling of the fluid-filled sacs that cushion the joints
  • Tendinitis, caused by the inflammation of joint tendons

                                                                             

                                                                                          Chronic Nerve Pain

Chronic nerve (neuropathic) pain commonly happens when the nerves are either compressed, damaged, or exposed to drugs that strip their protective exterior coating (called the myelin sheath).

Some of the more common examples of chronic neuropathic pain we treat are:

  • Sciatica, typically caused by nerve compression that triggers a shooting pain down the leg
  • Diabetic neuropathy, often occurring in the hands or feet
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome, commonly associated with repetitive motion
  • Postherpetic neuralgia, a type of chronic pain that persists after a shingles outbreak
  • Trigeminal neuralgia, caused by injury to the trigeminal nerve of the face

                                                                                              Chronic Pain Syndrome

Chronic pain syndrome (CPS) can develop if the pain is intense, it doesn’t stop, or it keeps you from doing your regular activities. You might develop symptoms beyond pain alone, like depression, anxiety, insomnia and extreme fatigue, which interfere with your daily life. We treat symptoms of CPS effectively
