FAILED BACK SURGERY


When spine surgery does not resolve a spinal pain problem or it creates an even greater problem for the patient, as is too often the case according to recent studies, it is called failed back surgery syndrome.

Clinical studies have revealed that the most common reason for failed back surgeries is failure to correctly diagnose and treat lateral spinal stenosis (LSS). LSS is a condition that includes disc and annular protrusion, facet hypertrophy and spur formation.

So it helps to see a pain management specialist who is also an experienced diagnostician.

TREATING NUROPATHIC PAIN


Neuropathic pain is complex and chronic and usually accompanies tissue injury. The nerve fibers may be damaged,dysfunctional or injured and send incorrect signals to other pain centers. Some common causes of neuropathic pain are:
• Amputation (phantom limb pain)
• Chronic neuropathic abdominal & pelvic pain
• Chemotherapy induced neuropathy
• Diabetes (diabetic neuropathy)
• Facial nerve problems (trigeminal neuralgia)
• Multiple sclerosis
• Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS or RSD)
• Shingles (postherpetic neuralgia)
• Occipital neuralgia
• Spine surgery (failed back surgery syndrome)
Symptoms may include shooting and burning pain and/or tingling and numbness.

ACUTE / CHRONIC BACK PAIN

Back pain is a very common condition. If rest, physical therapy and over the counter medications don’t resolve the problem, specialized help is needed. We have treated thousands of patients who suffer from various back conditions.

HERNIATED LUMBAR DISC / SCIATICA PAIN

The inner part of the human disc is a shock-absorbing soft material known as the nucleus. If the nucleus herniates backwards and it will pinche a nerve root or the spinal cord. This will manifest as pain (sciatica) and loss of function.

ACUTE / CHRONIC NECK PAIN

Neck pain is very common. If the pain is not relieved by rest, therapy and over the counter medications expert help is needed. We have treated thousands of patients with various neck conditions.

COMPRESSION FRACTURES OF THE SPINE

The spine is made of several bones stacked one on top of another and linked together with discs and ligaments. The body of each bone looks like a box, if the box is fractured it will lose height resulting in pain and deformity of the spine. If you or a loved one suffers from pain due to compression fractures, please seek expert help.

SACRAL INSUFFICIENCY FRACTURES

The sacrum is a large bone that acts as a link between the spine and the hip bones. Osteoporosis weakens the sacrum and renders it susceptible to painful fractures. If you or a loved one suffer from an insufficiency fracture please seek help.

DIABETIC NEUROPATHY

Diabetes results in damage to the small nerve endings in the hands and feet, also known as Peripheral Neuropathy. If you or a loved one suffers from the painful side effects of Diabetes, please seek help.

POST HERPETIC NEUROPATHY

Shingles is a flare up of Chicken Pox virus that has laid dormant for decades. If pain continues for more than 30 days after the start of Skin lesions, please seek expert help.

REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY

This is a rare dysfunction of the central nervous system. It usually starts after a minor injury like an ankle sprain or a wrist fracture. It manifests as pain, swelling, joint stiffness and change in skin color and temperature. The key to management of RSD is early recognition and treatment.



WHIPLASH & CERVICOGENIC HEADACHES


Millions of people have suffered velocity-induced whiplash. If you have ever been hit from behind in a motor vehicle crash, you have some idea what this type of whiplash injury feels like.

After the sudden acceleration-deceleration force of a car accident, whiplash can cause damage to bone structures and soft tissues. Symptoms commonly attributed to whiplash may include:

Neck pain & stiffness

Cervicogenic headache

Shoulder pain & stiffness

Dizziness

Fatigue

Jaw pain & TMJ symptoms

Back pain

Arm pain & weakness

Vision problems

Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)

Physical therapy can be useful for strengthening neck muscles and reducing painful motions.

WHAT ABOUT CERVICOGENIC HEADACHES


These strange headaches originate in the neck. They come from a variety of neck disorders, including the anatomical structures of the cervical spine. Cervicogenic headaches are often caused by unusual neck movement (e.g. whiplash) or sustained awkward positioning of the head. Symptoms may include restricted cervical range of motion and neck, shoulder or arm pain.

The treatment for cervicogenic headache involves a comprehensive evaluation of possible causes and contributing factors. Some injection therapies are effective in treating these headaches. One of the most effective injections are X-ray-guided facet joint blocks.Type your paragraph here.
