San Diego, California (PRWEB) December 16, 2013
The top San Diego pain management doctors with the California Pain Network are now offering over 20 effective treatments for failed back surgery. The treatments span both medications and interventional pain therapies, with excellent success rates. Most insurance is accepted, call (619) 500-1573 for scheduling.
Failed back surgery occurs when a procedure such as a spinal fusion does not significantly relieve an individual's pain. The resulting chronic pain may leave an individual unable to work, socialize or play with one's kids. In addition, if further surgery is not indicated there may be few options for obtaining pain relief.
Thankfully, the pain management doctors in San Diego with the Network provide both medical and interventional treatments. Medications may include oral or topical NSAIDS, numbing medicine, neurogenic medicines or opiates. Interventional treatment options may include trigger point injection, facet or medial branch blocks or radiofrequency ablation.
Multiple different types of epidural injections are offered depending on whether nerve roots are being irritated or pinched. One of the most revolutionary treatments being offered for failed back surgery is spinal cord stimulator implants. The implants are an excellent last resort option for those who have failed considerable other treatments.
With such a plethora of treatment options available, the San Diego pain doctors are able to individualize therapies. These treatments are often able to significantly reduce a patient's baseline level of pain and help individuals get back to work and recreational activities.
