Many of us have our own physician that we use on a regular basis. They look after our healthcare and we are accustomed to the way that they work on us. At times, however, they may end up referring us to a specialist which will handle a specific issue that we may be dealing with. If you are having a difficulty with painful conditions, such as injury from an automobile accident, fibromyalgia or diabetic neuropathy, they can refer you to the DFW Pain Docs for assistance in overcoming and dealing with the pain that you are experiencing.
In addition to working with your physician, we also work with many chiropractors who can also refer you to our service. We give specialized care and we offer services that may not be offered through a chiropractor or through your primary care physician. This type of referral plan can assist you in numerous ways. They will continue to be the doctor that cares for your primary needs and will be who you visit for routine checkups and for regular health maintenance. When they refer you to DFW Pain Docs, we will treat your condition and then you will be able to go back to your existing medical professional.

Some of the conditions which may be treated at our locations include injuries, cancer pain, post-operative pain, sports injuries, diabetic neuropathy and headaches.

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.
