If you live in Houston and pain management seems far away or unachievable, think again. The St. Michaelís Pain and Spine Clinics offer state-of-the-art and highly specialized techniques for interventional pain management. For those in Houston, pain management is available for lower back pain, upper back pain, sciatica, migraines, and failed back surgery syndrome (also known as post-laminectomy syndrome) as well as for many other less common conditions. Living with neck pain, back pain or arm pain can rob your live of enjoyment. A normal life while experiencing severe pain is sometimes difficult, if not impossible, for many patients. At our clinics, we strive to help you achieve pain management and to get back to enjoying your life again.
Patients seeking treatment for their severe pain may occasionally receive extensive information that may be confusing and sometimes overwhelming. At the St. Michaelís Pain and Spine Clinics, we assist patients in sorting through this sea of information and options in order to arrive to an informed decision for their treatment. Our goal is to help patients attain recovery of function and effective pain management without using narcotics or surgery whenever possible. The effectiveness of minimally invasive techniques has shown in many instances that pain reduction is a reachable goal.
Because one type of treatment works on one patient, it does not mean it will work on all patients. There are many variable factors underlying the mechanisms of back pain, neck pain or pain affecting the arm or the legs. It could depend upon the patientís age, medical history, associated conditions, severity of the process and so on. If you are a resident of Houston, pain treatment is available to you at the St. Michaelís Pain and Spine Clinics. Our pledge to our patients: we will do our best to help them find the answers they need to reduce pain, regain function and enjoy their lives again.
