What is pain management?
Pain management refers to any procedures or therapies that target the underlying cause of your pain condition. The pain management professionals at Radiant Pain Relief Centres know how quickly chronic pain can affect your life. Their goal is to reduce your pain without surgery and other invasive procedures and without prescribing addictive opioids.
Which conditions can pain management treat?
Whether you have acute pain (pain that lasts for less than six months) or chronic pain (pain that’s lasted for more than six months), pain management techniques can help you reclaim your mobility, flexibility, and range of motion.
Some of the most common conditions that Radiant Pain Relief treats at their office are:
Fibromyalgia is a complex condition that causes widespread pain, fatigue, headaches, depression, and a host of other uncomfortable symptoms. Researchers believe fibromyalgia happens when your brain and spinal cord fail to process pain signals correctly.
Back pain is among the most common pain conditions in the United States. It can be caused by an injury, degenerative disease, or poor posture.
Arthritis, or joint inflammation, makes your joints feel stiff and painful. They can look visibly swollen and be warm to the touch.
Neuropathy is nerve damage that can cause shooting pain, burning, numbness, and/or tingling. The most common type of this nerve damage is peripheral neuropathy, which primarily affects the nerves in your hands, arms, legs, and feet.
What is included in pain management?
Pain management doesn’t have to involve potentially addictive medications, invasive surgery, or injections that often provide only short-term relief. Fortunately, the pain management team at Radiant Pain Relief Centres has a non-invasive solution for lasting relief from acute and chronic pain.
Scrambler Therapy is an FDA-cleared treatment for widespread chronic pain. As a cutaneous (skin surface) electro-stimulation treatment, Scrambler Therapy is entirely non-invasive. Your technician places electrodes on your skin near where you feel the pain and delivers low-level electrical currents with the device.
The treatment works by replacing faulty pain signals with non-pain information. As your treatments build, your brain begins to recognize this new information as non-pain signals, effectively relieving your long-term pain.
How long does Scrambler Therapy for pain management take?
Every case differs depending on how long you’ve been in pain, how severe it is, and what’s causing it. Most patients need one treatment session every day for two weeks, with a two-day break in the middle. Each Scrambler Therapy treatment takes about 45 minutes.
