If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation where you need assistance with a painful condition, you can trust the services available through the DFW Pain Docs. We have 10 convenient locations available throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area to provide you with pain relief through a variety of options. Some of the conditions which may be treated at our locations include injuries, cancer pain, post-operative pain, sports injuries, diabetic neuropathy and headaches. These conditions may be treated with non-surgical procedures or with minimally invasive procedures, depending on the circumstances.
Some of the ways in which we treat these painful conditions can include techniques, such as steroid injections. These type of injections, which are sometimes known as Epidural Steroid Injections (ESI) may be used to overcome a variety of conditions that affect the spine. Some of the more common reasons why it may be used include sciatica, degenerative disc disease and herniated disc. The procedure is used to inject a steroid into the area that is experiencing the problem. It helps to reduce the pain and other difficulties by reducing inflammation. Although the effects are temporary, they can be profound.
The professionals at DFW Pain Docs may also feel that trigger point injections (TPI) would be a better choice for the treatment of your pain. These types of injections are given into an area of muscle that is experiencing pain. By injecting the trigger point, it can help the area to relax and can take some of the pressure off of the surrounding nerves. It is a common treatment for myofascial pain syndrome and well as for reducing fibromyalgia pain and for the treatment of tension headaches.
One other treatment options that you may want to consider is the use of a spinal cord stimulator, known as a Neuro E-Stim. It may help to reduce the pain signals that are being transmitted through the spinal column to the brain. There are also trial options available for the Neuro E-Stim which can allow you to see the effectiveness of the product without having it inserted below the skin.
