The Newest and Exclusive Pain Treatments
Pain is complex; hence there are numerous pain treatments that are available — medications, therapies, alternative modalities and interventional techniques. Although science has made great progress in pain management, the current palliative and evidence-based treatments are inadequate to match patients’ needs. They not only fail in providing complete relief to patients, but they also have adverse side effects.
The good news is that with each passing day, better pain treatments and advanced techniques are being discovered. Thanks to ongoing research in pain medicine, doctors now have a host of novel treatment methods, which form a foundation for improved pain management in the future. These include:
Coolief Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
This technique targets the nerves which transmit pain signals to the brain. Here, doctors place a needle close to the nerve that causing deep pain. The tip of the needle heats up to slightly burn the nerve so it can’t transmit the pain signal. Coolief is used to treat chronic arthritis, severe knee pain, lower back problems, serious neck pain and hip pain conditions.
Spinal Cord Stimulation
This technique involves low voltage stimulation of the spine to block the sensation of pain. A tiny device implanted into the patient’s body sends an electric current to the spine. First introduced 40 years ago, spinal cord stimulation is still being refined and tested as an alternative to chronic leg, arm and back surgical treatment.
This is an all-natural area of pain treatment that has the potential to completely heal damaged organs and tissues. It refers to all types of medical procedures that aim to regenerate or replace human cells, organs and tissues for treating acute or chronic pain ailments associated with degenerative disease.
Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression (MILD)
This is an advanced technique used to treat the specific condition know as spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal, a condition that causes great pain in the back or lower extremities. MILD is a less invasive approach that removes overgrown ligament and any overgrown bone at the back of the spine, by providing the necessary decompression of the patient’s stenotic area.
The future has hope for chronic pain patients. Modern medicine that mostly involves the use of narcotic drugs, such as opioids, doesn’t have to be the only option for extreme pain. Patients looking for long-term pain relief can open their minds to new possibilities like these. Advanced pain treatments such as Coolief, spinal cord stimulation, minimally invasive lumbar decompression procedures, and all-natural regenerative medicine hold the key to improved patient care.
