Spine Guide To Offer New Pain Management Services

Houston, Texas (PRWEB) August 11, 2014

In some cases, a patient might be suffering from a disease or injury that cannot be cured or easily be eliminated. Pain management is a branch of medicine designed to, at the very least, ease the pain and suffering the patient goes through. Spine Guide, which primarily functions as a health information website that specializes in the spine, will start providing a wide range of pain management services to help people with spinal problems. With its extensive list of pain management techniques, Spine Care ensures the eventual improvement of patients' quality of life without having to resort to spine surgery.

The new services include non-invasive pain management techniques for less serious conditions, or patients who are not comfortable with the evasive nature of surgery. Yoga and stretching are used for people with the muscle memories of past injuries; affected body parts are stretched to get rid of the muscular trauma. With hot and cold packs, the temperature of the affected areas can be reduced or increased to speed up recovery. Some patients might react better to electro-magnetic stimulation and infrared beams, which move the muscles and provide a warming sensation, respectively. Acupuncture, an ancient Chinese treatment method, is one of the most popular non-invasive treatments for pain, with small needles inserted into the skin to block out nerve transmissions of pain signals.

In other cases, the spinal problem might be so serious that the best route would have to be an invasive treatment plan. It is not spinal surgery, and it is supposed to be more in depth than non-invasive treatment. Injections of numbing medications, such as lidocaine, can actually determine the source of the patient's pain in a way that cannot easily be detected by non-invasive treatments. Patients who suffer from lower back pain might benefit greatly from radiofrequency ablation and neurotomy procedures, which can short-circuit the feeling of pain; a type of injection called prolotherapy, which is particularly good for sciatica, whiplash, and degenerative disc disease; or the use of oral opioid medications.
