Active Living – Unbearable Pain Shouldn’t Hold You Back
Active Living is a common lifestyle for many patients. Long lasting pain after an injury or with aging can keep people from physical activity and hobbies though. Our physicians are trained in interventional pain medicine, and they care about your active living and pain treatment for this type of life. Regular activity could lead to a serious injury depending on your body. Injuries can vary from basic wear and tear to unbearable pain, but Space City Pain Specialists use advanced pain treatments for patients suffering from major, long-lasting pain symptoms.
Healthy vs. Unhealthy
Pain can be divided into two categories. There is healthy pain and unhealthy pain. Space City Pain works to treat the unhealthy pain that serves no purpose. Healthy pain is a part of our human instincts. Small and temporary pain lets our bodies know when something isn’t right. Pain that continues to hurt and ache day after day is unhealthy and useless. Pain that follows long after an injury is an example of unhealthy pain.
ACTIVE LIVING BENEFITS
Being active has many benefits. Disabling pain shouldn’t keep patients from:
- Better Mental Health
- Improved Sleep Quality
- Lowered Risks of Cancer
- Maintaining a Healthy Weight
- Strenghtening Heart Health
HEALTHY PAIN TREATMENT OPTIONS
With expertise and experience, our Space City Pain Specialists can recommend various treatments that will work best for your deep pain conditions. For example, Spinal Cord Stimulation is a possible form of pain treatment that is commonly used for all age groups. Coolief Cooled Radiofrequency is another option available, but not when pain is felt in the arms or ankles. Instead, Regenerative Medicine may be suggested or these types of chronic pain.
Our pain specialists use advanced technology and procedures for our active patients including:
Spinal Cord Stimulation
Microdosing & Pain Pumps
Even patients who have had previous surgeries or pain prescriptions can still be suffering from chronic pain. Patients who originally sought a treatment for their aching pain may just be managing it with temporary regiments. Space City Pain Specialists have seen cases like this and new injuries each day. Our focus on keeping patients active is the main goal at our Houston-area pain centers.
