An issue with chronic back pain is one that can certainly affect your quality of life and your ability to move about freely. Back pain, regardless of whether it is lower back pain or upper back pain is also one of the most common conditions which keep individuals from working. If you are dealing with pain and feel as if there is nothing that can be done about it, rest assured that there are options that are available. At The DFW Pain Docs, we offer a number of innovative treatment programs which can assist you in dealing with pain and reducing it to the point where your quality of life is improved.
One of the options that we make available is the Neuro E-Stim. This device can be used on a trial basis and if it works well for you, which it likely will, it can then be inserted permanently into the area of the spine. Of course, this is one of the medical procedures that are entirely reversible, unlike a lot of the spinal surgeries which carry a number of risks along with them. The device provides stimulation to the spine which in turn, reduces the pain signals that are being transmitted to the brain. It also contains a unique remote control device which allows you to control how much stimulation you are experiencing and the area of your body in which pain is being reduced.
Along with the Neuro E-Stim, we also offer a number of other treatment options, depending upon your specific condition. Some of those options include injections, such as epidural steroid injections which are given in to the area of the spine that is experiencing problems. For those who have been dealing with chronic back pain for quite some time, the effect of this injection can be quite profound. The steroid reduces inflammation, relieving some of the pressure from the nerves that are causing you pain.
You can contact the DFW Pain Docs for more information and for an appointment. We offer same day or next day appointments and can assist you in a number of different ways to deal with your pain. We accept many types of insurance, including Medicare and workers compensation and we can also work along with your primary care physician or your chiropractor for a complete treatment program.
