OPTIMAL Pain and Regenerative Medicine is dedicated to improving pain and function in patients with persistent pain who have failed to respond to routine medical care. Our medical specialists combine advanced medical knowledge, technical expertise and compassion to implement creative solutions in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with acute, chronic and cancer pain.
Pain can develop for many reasons. Pain can be acute, chronic or caused from cancer. Acute pain can be managed immediately and can improve in a short time. If pain persists after the designated healing process then you may have chronic pain. Chronic pain can worse or remain the same. In either case, it is important to address your pain with a medical professional. Cancer pain can be caused by surgery, treatment procedures including radiation therapy and chemotherapy, or from the tumor itself. Effective pain management is essential to comprehensive cancer care.
Pain management can be simple or complex. The treatment of pain is guided by the history of the pain, its intensity, duration, aggravating and relieving conditions, and structures involved in causing the pain. Pain management identifies the precise source of the problem and uses the optimal treatment option to relieve pain.
Below is a partial list of pain management procedures that OPTIMAL provides.
HF10 therapy, Nevro’s proprietary spinal cord stimulation, uses a 10,000Hz frequency along with additional propriety factors to provide superior chronic pain relief without paresthesia. The HF10 is implanted in the lower back or buttock area and relieves pain without the troublesome sensation of traditional SCS systems.
The St. Jude Axium™ Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation System is the first and only neurostimulation device designed for dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation. This system delivers a form of spinal stimulation that gives physicians the ability to treat the specific areas of the body where pain occurs.
An epidural injection places anti-inflammatory medicine into the epidural space to decrease inflammation of the nerve roots, hopefully reducing the pain in your back or legs. The epidural injection may help the injury to heal by reducing inflammation. It may provide permanent relief, or provide a period of pain relief for several months while the injury or cause of your pain is healing.
Balloon kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat a spinal fracture caused by osteoporosis, menopause, or other health conditions. Balloon kyphoplasty utilizes small orthopedic balloons that are guided into the vertebral body, and then inflated to raise the collapsed vertebral body and return to its correct position.
