For millions of Americans, degenerative disc disease leads to chronic, daily back pain. This may lead to lost time from work, inability to concentrate and depression.
Options with the Board Certified Corpus Christi pain management doctors include interventional treatments such as facet blocks, radiofrequency ablation, medial branch blocks and intradiscal injection. These may provide months to over a year of consistent relief.
If the disc degeneration has irritated adjacent nerves, epidural injections may bring relief. Along with the interventional treatments, oral and topical medications are offered at the practice including NSAIDS, muscle relaxers, neurogenic and pain medications.
Surgery is considered a last resort for degenerative disc disease and is an elective procedure. Results range significantly for the available procedures such as fusion or artificial disc replacement. Due to this, nonoperative pain management with the pain management doctors in Corpus Christi is recommended as a low risk, outpatient option for obtaining pain relief.
Most insurance is accepted at the Pain Management Clinic of Corpus Christi including Medicare, most PPO’s, Personal Injury, Workers Compensation, self pay and some HMO’s.
