Managing Chronic Back Pain
January 15, 2014
Living with chronic back pain can often feel like an uphill battle, especially when treatments have proved to be ineffective or bring minimal relief. When your back pain becomes an unpleasant daily reality, seeking out a doctor with pain management as an area of specialization can make a very real difference in your quality of life.
What is Pain Management?
Pain management treatment is an area of specialization which encompasses a variety of techniques and disciplines, which comes together into a cohesive plan designed to help you deal with the everyday pain of spine and back problems. Your customized plan may include acupuncture, physical therapy, chiropractic care and massage therapy. The end result is a vastly improved quality of life, improved function of your back, spine and neck and relief from chronic pain.
Sciatica, spinal stenosis, bulging and herniated discs are common causes of chronic back pain, as is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Through spinal cord stimulation, intrathecal infusion pump use and kyphoplasty, a pain management doctor and support staff can help to alleviate or dramatically lessen the amount of pain you feel each day. This allows you to get back to enjoying your life, rather than making constant allowances for back and spine pain.
Putting an End to Chronic Back Pain
Living in pain or discomfort every day doesn’t have to be your reality. By working with a doctor whose primary focus is treating the symptoms and underlying causes of your back pain, you can return to a normal life without debilitating pain. If your back and spine problems have negatively affected your quality of life, ability to work or are actively getting worse, it’s important to see a doctor who specializes in spinal care and pain management. Contact a pain management and spinal care doctor in your area to make an appointment for evaluation, and put an end to chronic back pain.
