Different Pain Conditions That Are Treated
Low Back Pain
My treatment of back pain begins with identification of its most likely origin, namely facet joints, discs, muscle spasm and so on. I provide multiple treatment options based on factors like the cause of your pain and your preference. What I offer is in line with current clinical evidence base and up to date with UK standard of care.
Pain in the neck can result from variety of causes like muscle spasm, trauma including whiplash and arthritis in small joints of spine or disc. This can cause significant suffering and impact in your daily lifestyle which I can alleviate courtesy of having extensive expertise in treating neck pain.
Sciatica & Brachialgia
Given the chronic nature of Sciatica (leg pain) and Brachialgia (arm pain), I offer detailed assessment to determine the most likely cause of your condition. Chronic pain despite surgery can be very debilitating. Treatment options include medications, injections, rehabilitation program and spinal implants following detailed assessment by a multidisciplinary team.
Post Surgery & Trauma Pain
It is not uncommon to have chronic pain after surgery, an accident or injury at work. This can be life changing. The cause often includes injury to soft tissue including muscles and nerve damage. I have extensive expertise in assessment and treatment of these pain conditions and have experience in managing this via a multidisciplinary setting.
Thorough evaluation is most important for this chronic and debilitating pain condition. I can help you overcome this problem through solutions, short-term and long-term. These include investigation, medication, radio-frequency or balloon compression of trigeminal nerve or referral for stereotactic surgery or referral for brain surgery if appropriate. I have been treating patients with this condition for over 10 years.
Intractable & Widespread Pain
Irrespective of its cause, intractable and widespread pain is one of the most debilitating conditions and one that can be fatal if ignored as shown by latest evidence. I am able to assess for a holistic treatment plan, namely Pain Management Program, which strikes a balance between physical and emotional recovery.
