If you suffer from acute or chronic pain, there are ways to manage that pain so you can enjoy good quality of life.
Dr. Navdeep Loomba, an interventional spine and pain management specialist, can treat pain anywhere it occurs in your body. He uses a multi-disciplinary approach to pain management, using the most effective combination of procedures to help you deal with pain. The goal is to make every patient more comfortable, whether the pain comes from injury, illness, or chronic conditions such as arthritis.
Acute pain comes on quickly after an accident or some sort of trauma but generally goes away after the injury has healed.
Chronic pain does not go away easily. The most common is chronic neck and low back pain. It is requires proper management so the patient’s life is not disrupted to the point where job and daily activities are affected.
Chronic pain can occur from RSD — reflex sympathetic dystrophy — and shingles. These can be treated with nerve blocks and spinal cord stimulators — electrical devices like pacemakers, which have shown remarkable results.
Regardless of the kind of pain you have the team at Global Pain Care is ready to work with you.
Pain caused by injury, illness, or age-related conditions are all candidates for treatment at Global Pain Care. Some patients benefit from injections or nerve blocks. Other types of pain require more aggressive approaches. Dr. Loomba will discuss the options with you.
Back pain is a very common type of discomfort because of the makeup of the spine itself. Herniated discs press on the nerves in the spine, causing pain. The nerves are also irritated by chemicals released from the damaged discs.
Spinal pain can also radiate into the arms and legs. Most often this type of pain is treated by means of epidural injections.
If the discs in your spine are degenerating, that means there is more pressure on the discs, which results in more pain in the spinal joints.
Besides the pain in the back coming from discs or facet joints, one can have back pain from other causes, such as fracture of the spine, cancer spreading to the spine, scoliosis or trauma. The spine fractures can be treated by procedures like Vertebroplasty or Kyphoplasty — cement is injected into the spine to heal the fracture. For cancer pain, there are different kinds of nerve blocks, which help to control the pain and decrease the side effects of pain medications.
Regardless of the type of pain you are experiencing, you can learn to handle or manage the pain without side effects. Pain management can benefit patients of any age, whether suffering from short-term or long-term conditions.
