Chronic Pain Q & A

What should I know about chronic pain?

Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts longer than three to six months or persists long after the original injury has healed. This type of pain doesn’t respond well to conventional medical care, which is one of the reasons many patients resort to opioids or consider surgery.

As specialists in pain medicine, the team at Rincon Pain and Spine offers many treatments that can help you avoid addictive medications and surgery by targeting the underlying source of your pain.  

 

How will I benefit from chronic pain management?

The goal of chronic pain management is to provide consistent pain relief so you can function normally again. The team at Rincon Pain and Spine uses advanced diagnostic techniques to pinpoint the source of your pain. They then create a pain management plan that’s customized for your unique health condition. They continue to monitor your progress and adjust your treatment as needed to maintain optimal pain relief.

 

What type of chronic pain treatment might I receive?

The doctors at Rincon Pain and Spine have extensive experience alleviating chronic pain using a wide range of interventional, regenerative, and alternative treatments. These are a few examples:

Epidural steroid injections

Your doctor injects steroids and a local anesthetic into the epidural space along your spine, targeting inflamed nerves causing back and neck pain.

Nerve blocks

To perform a nerve block, your doctor injects an anesthetic near a specific nerve root, relieving pain associated with joints and peripheral nerves.

Trigger point injections

A trigger point is a tight knot in a muscle or the connective tissue covering muscles. An injection of steroids and/or anesthesia relaxes the knot and relieves the pain.

Spinal cord stimulation

Your doctor implants the advanced Nevro HF10™, a spinal cord stimulator that delivers a mild electric impulse to spinal nerves. As the stimulator blocks nerve signals, your brain doesn’t get the pain message, and your pain diminishes.  

Radiofrequency ablation

Using radiofrequency energy delivered through a specialized needle, your doctor precisely creates a small wound on the nerve responsible for sending pain signals. The wound blocks nerve signals for an extended time.

Nerve pain therapy

After your doctor injects at the site of damaged tissues, the platelets release growth factors that activate healing and promote new tissue growth.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture restores the balance of natural energy and activates your body’s natural endorphins to help relieve pain.
