Conditions Treated - Pain Management

  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS): a chronic condition that sometimes occurs following injury or surgery. CRPS causes intense pain that can become worse with time; typically affects the arms, hands, legs and feet; and can cause a burning sensation and changes in skin color and temperature. Also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD).
  • Causalgia: severe burning pain in a limb caused by injury to a peripheral nerve
  • Failed back surgery syndrome or postlaminectomy pain
  • Lumbar radiculopathy: Pain in the lower back and/or hip that radiates down the back of the thigh into the leg
  • Spinal stenosis: Narrowing of spaces within the spine that puts pressure on spinal nerves
  • Lumbar and cervical facet arthropathy: pain in the joints that connect vertebrae to one another
  • Disc herniation: Damage or bulging of the discs between the vertebrae
  • Foraminal stenosis: Narrowing of the cervical disc space
  • Neuropathic pain: Complex, chronic pain that may follow injury to tissue
  • Occipital neuralgia: Inflammation or injury of the nerves that run from the scalp to the top of the spinal cord
  • Ilioinguinal neuralgia: Pain caused by damage to the ilioinguinal nerve that runs from the lower back, hips, groin and upper thigh; can be caused by hernia surgery and is also known as postherniorraphy pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Cancer pain: Can result from tests and treatments for cancer (e.g., chemotherapy, radiation therapy, biopsy) or from tumor growth that affects nerves, bones, organs or the spine
