What is Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain is a serious health condition that affects millions of individuals in the United States. Chronic pain, or pain that lasts longer than six months, is typically caused by an accident, injury, degenerative condition or the natural aging process. Patients living in the greater Dallas, Arlington and Fort Worth, Texas area now have the opportunity to fight chronic pain with a new, FDA approved spinal cord stimulation system. Nevro’s HF10™ therapy, offered at OPTIMAL Pain & Regenerative Medicine, is the only spinal cord stimulation system with FDA approval to deliver pain relief without a constant tingling sensation, otherwise known as paresthesia.
It is estimated approximately 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain, causing it to be the primary disability in the United States. Many patients experience chronic pain in the back or legs from an injury, accident, degenerative disease or the natural aging process.
Chronic pain is typically diagnosed by a physician when pain lasts longer than six months. Patients have a variety of treatment options ranging from conservative treatments such as medications and physical therapy to more advanced treatments such as spinal cord stimulation.
