Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Pain management is a medical specialty that focuses on diagnosing the cause of your pain and providing holistic treatment. The goal is to alleviate your pain and restore your ability to enjoy an active and productive life.

Why is pain management important? Because chronic pain seldom responds to medications. Even potent narcotics only provide temporary relief, while putting you at risk of becoming addicted. Additionally, the longer your pain goes on, the more likely you are to develop hypersensitive nerves. Then you begin to experience pain even when you shouldn’t.

What should I know about cancer pain management?

The pain associated with cancer may come from the tumor or develop as an unavoidable side effect of your cancer treatment. You may have:

Tumor-related pain

Your tumor can cause severe pain when it presses against nerves or soft tissues or spreads to your bones.

Peripheral neuropathy

The tumor, chemotherapy, and problems caused by cancer treatment such as vitamin deficiencies can cause peripheral nerve damage and nerve pain.

Radiation and chemotherapy injuries

Radiation and chemotherapy may lead to pain when they damage healthy tissues or organs and cause scarring or mouth sores.

Most types of cancer pain are relieved with interventional pain management.

What treatments are used during pain management?

Your treatment tackles all the facets of your pain, including therapies focused on any underlying medical conditions that were diagnosed, as well as interventional and regenerative medicine options that target the source of your pain.

Interventional treatments identify the nerves responsible for sending pain signals to your brain. Then your doctor at Interventional Spine and Pain Center uses specialized treatments to block or scramble the nerve signals. When these signals don’t reach your brain, you can’t feel the pain.

These are a few examples of interventional treatments that effectively relieve acute pain, chronic pain, and cancer pain:

  • Nerve blocks
  • Selective nerve root blocks
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Spinal cord stimulation

Regenerative medicine uses your body’s natural healing agents: stem cells and platelets in the form of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). When an injury or degenerative disease is responsible for your pain, your doctor at Interventional Spine and Pain Center may inject stem cells and/or PRP directly at the site of the damaged tissues. Then the cells promote new cell growth, accelerate healing, and relieve pain.
