Pain Clinic Houston. At our pain clinics, our goal of acute and chronic pain management is to control pain rapidly as much as feasible without the use of opioids (narcotics) or surgery, whenever possible. Our aim is to minimize the pain promptly, with emphasis on eliminating the discomfort in patients. Chronic pain develops over many years and is difficult to manage. Our pain specialists in Houston, however, will focus initially on a detailed neurological assessment; this is a key step towards identifying the cause of your pain (pain generators). In that manner, the pain specialist will device a treatment plan that is specific for the cause of your acute or chronic pain instead of using "pain pills" and cover the symptoms of an underlying and potentially treatable condition. With this approach, we have a very high rate of success in the management of chronic pain even in the most complex and challenging cases. This may initially may appear to be a goal that is far from reach to many patients, who have faced the burden of their condition for many years and are often frustrated by prior multiple treatment failures.
Pain Clinics Houston. Our pain management team treats chronic pain that is associated with several disease conditions such as neurogenic and nociceptive pain. The pain occurs as a result of injury to nerves or various other tissues such as discs in the spine, soft tissues, ligaments and joints (i.e., arthritic pain).
- They include sciatica, spinal nerve pain, neuropathy, post herpetic neuralgia (after shingles) and cervical or lumbar disc herniations, disc degeneration and radiculopathy (sciatica).
- We also specialize in treating complex regional pain syndrome or reflex sympathetic dystrophy.
- Our pain management and pain doctors in Houston also target fibromyalgia, post-traumatic pain, post- amputation pain, vascular insufficiency, cancer pain, failed back surgery (post laminectomy syndrome), back, neck and musculoskeletal conditions as well as chronic migraine and other complex headache syndromes.
We treat each patient’s condition as being unique. We set personal patient’s goals based on medical history and preexisting conditions. Our services are offered in a comfortable and friendly environment that places your pain as priority.
