Know about pain and the cost of treatment

The sensation of pain causes great discomfort to the individual and it can be described in several ways. This includes throbbing, stabbing, shooting, pinching, and aching pain that causes difficulty in doing normal day-to-day activities. Pain can have emotional and psychological impacts on the patient and it can affect the personal and professional relationships of the person. According to a spine specialist in Jaipur, pain can be accompanied by several other symptoms such as nausea, weakness, drowsiness, and dizziness. The irritation caused due to pain conditions can also lead to anger, mood swings, depression, and loss of mental peace. Pain can be categorized as acute and chronic pain. Acute pain arises as a result of sudden injury, and is often short-lived. On the other hand, chronic pain ranges from mild to severe, impacts in the long run, and signifies that the patient is suffering from a major disease.

The cost of pain management treatment depends on the severity of the patient’s condition. Pain conditions can be simple or complex and it depends on various factors such as symptoms, the causes of pain, and the level of discomfort from which the patient is suffering. Moreover, the cost of the treatment is ascertained once the right treatment approach is adopted as per the condition and symptoms explained by the patients. According to a knee pain specialist in Jaipur, the cost of the treatment can subsequently increase in case a combination of treatments is suggested for patients who are suffering from pain which hampers the daily routine functions. The most important aspect is the correct diagnosis of the pain by identifying the accurate cause of pain. Thereafter, the entire course of treatment is decided by targeting the primary cause of pain.

Major types of minimally invasive procedures for pain management

  • Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

    Also known as rhizotomy, this is a nonsurgical and minimally invasive procedure suggested by Pain Doctor which focuses on destroying the nerve fibers that are responsible for carrying pain signals to the brain. Patients suffering from chronic pain and arthritis are recommended to take up this procedure. Pain in the lower back and neck region can be effectively treated. Those patients who have experienced recurrent pain but can get relief from nerve block injections are considered to be the idle candidate for the radiofrequency ablation treatment.

  • Spinal Cord Stimulators

    Another effective technique adopted by our pain management specialist, the spinal cord stimulators are devices that restrict the pain signals from reaching the brain. The device is properly placed at the location affected by pain with proper X-Ray guidance to accurately locate the position. The device generates and sends mild electrical impulses to the nerves that transmit pain signals to the brain. The results show favourable outcomes in relieving pain without using any kind of pain conditions.

  • Prolotherapy

    An injection-based procedure, Prolotherapy is used to treat connective tissue injuries of the musculoskeletal system when other nonsurgical treatment therapies fail to provide the desired relief to the patient. Also known as regenerative injection therapy and sclerotherapy, the Back specialist recommends the procedure to treat small tears and weakened tissue. This helps in alleviating back pain and improving the functionality of the affected area. Not only back and neck pain, but the therapy also treats other kinds of spine pain caused due to Degenerative Disc Disease, Sciatica, Whiplash, and Sacroiliac problems.

  • Genicular Neurotomy

    The knee pain specialist considers the treatment as one of the best procedures for treating knee pain as compared to conventional methods of treatment. The sending of pain stimulus to the brain by the genicular nerves is restricted with the use of radiofrequency ablation which is assumed to be one of the important parts of the Genicular Neurotomy procedure.

  • Trigger Point Injections

    Trigger points that are located in the upper back and shoulder areas are the primary cause of pain in the head, neck, and shoulder region. Thus, the minimally invasive procedure focuses on these trigger points for managing pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, along with headache. The patient can get relief quickly as the medicines are directly injected into the trigger point.

  • Why should I approach a pain management doctor instead of other specialists?

    Unlike other specialists who treat pain associated with a particular region, the pain specialist has expertise in treating both orthopedic and nervous pain.

The third category involves pain management for conditions in which pain is caused by both tissue and nerve injury. For example, back pain.

    According to knee pain specialists, minimally invasive surgery offers multiple benefits to the patient such as less pain, minimum scarring, quick recovery, shorter hospital stay, less visible incisions with better accuracy.
