Pain Management - Overland Park, KS

Pain Management - Overland Park, KS

Chronic pain is defined as discomfort that persists for three months or longer. It can be caused by a medical condition or an injury.

If you suffer from chronic pain, you're not alone. Chronic pain affects 1.5 billion people worldwide, with 100 million of those people residing in the US.

The causes can be as vast as the treatments. Here are just a few types of chronic pain:

  • Pain due to injuries sustained by an automobile accident
  • Headaches
  • Back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis pain
  • Chronic abdominal and pelvic pain
  • Pain due to repetitive motion
  • Fibromyalgia

Traditional Treatments of Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain Treatment - Overland Park, KS

For years, chronic pain sufferers were restrained by a limited amount of treatments for their condition. Mild, but lingering pains were usually handled by analgesic pharmaceuticals such as acetaminophen and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication. More severe conditions could require the injection of anesthetics directly into the injured area. In extreme cases, surgery was the only answer.

In recent years, however, doctors have explored approaches to pain relief that called upon a proactive involvement with the patient.

New Treatments of Chronic Pain

In addition to physical manipulation, doctors have discovered advanced methods to combat chronic pain. Now more than ever, doctors have a greater understanding of the nervous system, the spinal cord, and how they interact with the brain. These studies have opened the door to a plethora of new pain management treatments.

  • Radiofrequency Ablation/Radiofrequency Neurotomy
  • Neurostimulation for chronic pain
  • MILD Procedure (Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression)
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Percutaneous Discectomy
