Major types of minimally invasive procedures for pain management
Also known as rhizotomy, this is a nonsurgical and minimally invasive procedure suggested by Pain Doctor which focuses on destroying the nerve fibers that are responsible for carrying pain signals to the brain. Patients suffering from chronic pain and arthritis are recommended to take up this procedure. Pain in the lower back and neck region can be effectively treated. Those patients who have experienced recurrent pain but can get relief from nerve block injections are considered to be the idle candidate for the radiofrequency ablation treatment.
Another effective technique adopted by our pain management specialist, the spinal cord stimulators are devices that restrict the pain signals from reaching the brain. The device is properly placed at the location affected by pain with proper X-Ray guidance to accurately locate the position. The device generates and sends mild electrical impulses to the nerves that transmit pain signals to the brain. The results show favourable outcomes in relieving pain without using any kind of pain conditions.
An injection-based procedure, Prolotherapy is used to treat connective tissue injuries of the musculoskeletal system when other nonsurgical treatment therapies fail to provide the desired relief to the patient. Also known as regenerative injection therapy and sclerotherapy, the Back specialist recommends the procedure to treat small tears and weakened tissue. This helps in alleviating back pain and improving the functionality of the affected area. Not only back and neck pain, but the therapy also treats other kinds of spine pain caused due to Degenerative Disc Disease, Sciatica, Whiplash, and Sacroiliac problems.
The knee pain specialist considers the treatment as one of the best procedures for treating knee pain as compared to conventional methods of treatment. The sending of pain stimulus to the brain by the genicular nerves is restricted with the use of radiofrequency ablation which is assumed to be one of the important parts of the Genicular Neurotomy procedure.
Trigger points that are located in the upper back and shoulder areas are the primary cause of pain in the head, neck, and shoulder region. Thus, the minimally invasive procedure focuses on these trigger points for managing pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, along with headache. The patient can get relief quickly as the medicines are directly injected into the trigger point.
Any sudden injury can cause you pain but it can develop into chronic pain if it persists for longer than three months. The chronic pain condition generally arises when the damaged peripheral nerves keep on receiving and sending messages to the brain even after recovery from the illness and injury.
