Pain Management Q & A

When might I need pain management?

Integrity Pain Consultants provides comprehensive management for all types of pain. However, they specialize in helping patients with chronic pain. 

Acute pain is your body’s normal response to an injury or illness. This type of pain lasts less than three months and goes away as the problem heals.

Chronic pain lasts longer than three months or persists after the injury or illness heals. Once chronic pain develops, it doesn’t respond well to typical medical care. Ongoing chronic pain also changes your central nervous system, making your nerves so sensitive that even a soft touch can feel painful.

What causes chronic pain?

Chronic pain often begins as an injury or illness, but sometimes the pain develops without an identifiable cause. Low back pain, chronic migraines, and neck pain are the top causes of chronic pain. Some of the many possible causes of chronic pain include:

  • Herniated disc
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Neuropathy
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Vascular disease

Cancer patients also experience chronic pain either due to the disease or the side effects of their treatment.

What treatment might I receive for pain management?

When you have ongoing pain despite conservative medical care, it’s time to take advantage of your treatment options at Integrity Pain Consultants. The practice has years of experience in physical therapy, nutritional counseling, regenerative medicine, and the innovative treatments offered by interventional medicine specialists.

Your personalized pain management treatment plan draws from their broad range of expertise, and may include:

  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Nerve blocks
  • Ganglion blocks
  • Trigger point injections
  • Steroid injections
  • Botox® injections
  • Hyaluronic acid injections
  • Spinal cord stimulation
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Discseel® Procedure

Regenerative treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell injections can alleviate pain by healing the damaged tissues. PRP triggers the healing response, regulates inflammation, and supports the matrix needed for new tissue growth. Stem cells regenerate all the new tissues you need to heal the specific problem.
