Experiencing Pain & Discomfort?
Pain and discomfort can be more than just pain and discomfort. Over time, pain and discomfort can begin to take a toll on your overall being. In this post, we’ll discuss how listening to your body can do a lot of good for prevention of worsening symptoms over time. Read on to explore more about pain and discomfort origins and how we at Neurosurgery & Spine Consultants can help.
Where is the Pain & Discomfort Coming From?
Locating the origins of your pain and discomfort is the first step towards addressing the underlying issue at hand.
Neck pain is one of the most commonly seen types of pain our patients present to us. We always start off by asking our patients who are experiencing neck pain, “When did it start and what type of lifestyle do you have?”. These types of questions help identify the style of neck pain and how we can best resolve it for our patients. Neck pain which is exacerbated by sitting incorrectly at a desk is different from neck pain exacerbated by incorrectly lifting heavy items on a construction site.
Back pain affects many individuals. Whether they’re active athletes, or individuals who never really exercise; back pain has a way of developing within all demographics of society. Young, old, thin, overweight; chronic back pain is a condition which knows no bounds when it comes to developing in the patients we see. Our best approach to back pain is to address it from a conservative perspective. We first start off with physical therapy paired with a change in diet and lifestyle. From there, if there are no noticeable changes over time, we’ll recommend exploring the idea of surgery.
Wrist pain has become quite prevalent with many of us typing on keyboards, day in, day out. It’s important to have the right ergonomic keyboard, desk, and chair to support your hands and wrists while typing for hours and hours each day. We like to evaluate our patients’ wrist pain from a proactive perspective. Ideally, this means resolving the issue before it becomes a much bigger problem.
Leg pain is often developed from sitting and not allowing your body to have proper circulation. Oftentimes, it’s best to incorporate moderate, daily exercise (walking is a gentle option) in some form to help reduce leg pain. If you find this is still not resolving your chronic leg pain, you’ll want to contact us to arrange a visit to be seen by our physical therapy team. They’ll most likely be able to help you bounce back to your previously healthy self. If you’re still experiencing pain, we can evaluate how surgery may benefit you in certain instances.
Neuropathy pain can be a difficult condition to treat, yet here at Neurosurgery & Spine Consultants; we’ve been able to successfully help patients with their neuropathy condition. Neuropathy is very much treated on a case-by-case basis. The cause of neuropathy could very well be unique to your lifestyle, past injuries, etc… We’re here to help identify the problem areas and correct them through a variety of different methods.
