Medication can ease temporary, acute pain after surgery or an injury. But once pain becomes chronic, medicine seldom provides enough pain relief.
Why doesn’t medication work well? Because chronic pain (pain lasting at least three months and often for years) is a complex condition involving nerve sensitization, brain processes, and changes in the way you perceive pain.
Chronic pain leads to a progressive pain cycle. Pain limits your mobility, lack of exercise weakens muscles, and these changes increase your chronic pain.
Despite the challenges of chronic pain, Dr. Reinhart’s practice can help you finally find some relief with many effective solutions.
Chronic pain often begins following a traumatic accident, sports injury, or surgery if the pain persists after your wounds heal. Sometimes, chronic pain develops without an identifiable injury or cause (called idiopathic pain).
Many people struggle with chronic pain because of underlying health conditions, including:
Neuromuscular disorders like multiple sclerosis (MS) can also cause chronic pain.
The pain management specialists at The Office of Roland Reinhart, MD, offer many treatments to relieve chronic pain, including:
Interventional treatments like epidural steroid injections, radiofrequency ablation, nerve blocks, and spinal cord stimulation, to name a few, use different techniques to stop pain signals from reaching your brain.
Your provider injects specialized substances like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells that activate healing in the damaged tissues.
Cold laser therapy is a noninvasive light treatment that reduces inflammation, eases pain, and promotes healing.
Steroids and other medications reduce inflammation and pain inside a joint.
Your provider does a minimally invasive procedure to take pressure off pinched spinal nerves.
