Why Should I Choose the Advanced Relief Institute for My Chronic Pain?
At the Advanced Relief Institute, our experts understand the severity and impact chronic pain conditions can have on those affected.
In some cases, chronic pain may be due to multiple medical conditions and must be treated on an individual basis. Our doctors are highly experienced in diagnosing and treating various chronic pain conditions and will work with you to find what works.
Chronic pain syndrome occurs due to poor signaling between the hypothalamus, pituitary and adrenal glands, and the nervous system.
People with chronic pain syndrome experience stress and pain differently and even have abnormally low levels of endorphins in their spinal fluid. Endorphins are bodily chemicals that help you control pain naturally.
Because the symptoms of chronic pain syndrome can mimic those of many other conditions, it can be difficult to diagnose. Each person experiences chronic pain syndrome slightly differently, and it requires a skilled doctor to be able to pinpoint the root of your chronic pain.
Depending on where your pain is located, you may be asked to go through a series of tests. These may include:
- Screening tests (MRIs, CT scans, X-rays, ultrasounds)
- Blood tests
- Physical exams
Treatment for your chronic pain will vary depending on the type and extent of your pain condition. The Advanced Relief Institute offers a multidisciplinary approach to treating chronic pain.
Potential chronic pain treatments may include (but are not limited to):
Recovery following interventional pain management therapies usually involves no downtime; however, there may be some sensitivity in the treatment area. Your doctor at the Advanced Relief Institute will let you know about any restrictions following your treatment.
