Having neck and back pain can be one of the worst kinds of ailments to suffer from, regardless if you are young or old. You are hardly able to perform simple tasks such as walking across the floor without experiencing a great deal of pain when your neck and back hurts. At our clinics, you can explore many state-of-the-art treatment options through highly specialized pain management modalities. We treat patients with severe neck and back pain through minimally invasive techniques that eliminate in several instances the need for surgery and even pain medications.
Commonly treated conditions at our Houston Pain Management Clinics include:
- Lower back pain. We are particularly interested in chronic, severe and challenging patients such as those who have repeatedly been subject to surgery without success (i.e., failed back surgery syndrome)
- Failed Back Surgery Syndrome
- Upper back pain
- Leg pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
One of our goals is to equip our patients with knowledge, so they can fully understand their condition and make informed decisions for therapy. When a person is suffering from neck and back pain, they need unequivocal advice and clear explanations as to which direction to take their treatment. Frequently, patients become confused about which treatment options are the most appropriate for them. Once a patient is under our care, we will take the time necessary to ensure they understand fully all aspects of the treatment recommended.
If clinically appropriate, we often employ minimally invasive techniques that target the pain generators in the spine that are frequently the source of the neck and back pain. Using advanced image guidance systems, the doctors are able to precisely target the diseased areas with either thin needles or special needle-like instruments. These are highly sophisticated and powerful techniques that cause only cause minimal discomfort.
