Your body’s nervous system is involved in every biological system including regulating your breathing, controlling your muscles, and gauging temperature. This means conditions involving your nervous system are not limited to just your nervous system, nerve conditions can affect every part of the body. With nerve damage, you may experience a wide variety of symptoms that depend on the location and type of nerves affected. If you’re seeking help for nerve pain management, please contact the office to schedule a detailed evaluation – (214) 915-2619, or book your appointment online today.
Neuropathic pain is often described as a shooting or burning pain associated with nerve damage. It may be caused by diabetes, shingles, genetic diseases, chemotherapy and nerve compression.
Treatments for Neuropathic Pain Include:
LUMBAR RADICULAR PAIN
Most people know this type of pain as Sciatica. The condition causes pain to radiate from the lower back down through the leg. Lumbar Spinal Stenosis, which is narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back, most often occurs when bone, tissue, or both, grow in the openings of the spinal bones. This growth can cause intense pressure on your spinal cord and can also irritate nerves that branch out from the spinal cord.
Treatments for Lumbar radicular pain include:
Central sensitization is a condition of the nervous system that is associated with the development and maintenance of chronic pain. This includes Fibromyalgia, Myofascial Pain, TMJ, Interstitial Cystitis (IC), chronic pelvic pain, migraines, tension headaches, PTSD, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity(MCS). When central sensitization occurs, the nervous system goes through a process called wind-up and gets regulated in a persistent state of high reactivity. This persistent, or regulated, state of reactivity lowers the threshold for what causes pain and subsequently comes to maintain pain even after the initial injury has healed.
Treatments for Central Sensitization Include:
COMPRESSION FRACTURES, TRAUMA, OR OTHER CRACKED VERTEBRAE
Compression fractures in your back are tiny breaks in bones that can be caused by things such as; osteoporosis, trauma, or certain types of cancers that often stabilize on their own in a few months. For some, the pain can be too extreme and supplementary pain relief is required. For these patients, Kyphoplasty is the recommended treatment method as it provides relief for patients experiencing compression fractures or other spinal fractures.
Treatments for compression fractures or other vertebrae disease include:
