If oral medications are not proving helpful in managing pain for injuries related to the spinal cord, then one must try for pain management therapies as nowadays, they are highly recommended by the doctors. There are three different types of therapies that can reduce pain without the intervention of a surgery
- Spinal cord stimulation
- Pain pumps
- Peripheral nerve stimulation
These therapies are provided on a trial basis and if a person responds to any of the trials, then long-term treatment plan is decided by a physiotherapist along with a neurologist. While implantable pain management might not work for everyone, if it does, a person might experience a significant reduction in pain.
Peripheral nerve stimulation and spinal cord stimulation to counter the pain:
Both Peripheral nerve stimulation and spinal cord stimulation are types of electrical stimulation that can be deployed to treat chronic pain. This is a method wherein, insulated wires that have electrical contacts are inserted near the spinal cord. In case of the peripheral nerve stimulation therapy, the wires are placed beneath the skin. An implanted generator is attached to a wire, in order to send electrical pulses around the affected area of the spinal cord.
During the process of implantation, a patient is awakened, so as to understand whether the pulse is being directed to the right spot or not and also if there is any relief from pain or not. In some cases, patients may need both peripheral nerve field therapy and spinal cord stimulation at the same time. Stimulation does not necessarily eliminate the pain altogether, it, however, can reduce the pain to half, thereby leading to drastic improvement in performing daily activities.
Intrathecal Pain Pump
This is a procedure through which medication is directly delivered to the spinal cord by implanting an intrathecal pain pump. The medication is directly sent to the pain receptors, thereby ensuring that the brain doesn’t get the pain reception from the neuron. This helps in easing the perception of pain.
This is a procedure where a person is given a general anesthesia only to insert a thin catheter into the fluid-filled region of the spinal cord known as the intrathecal space. A doctor implants a small pump in the abdomen and the same is attached to a catheter. This is followed by injecting the medicine into the reservoir of the pump. In these cases, strong painkillers such as morphine are injected into the pumps, these are filled with painkillers once in a month. This mode of treatment is helpful owing to the act that the body has round-the-clock medication at its disposal. There is provision to administer multiple medicines in case of serious pain. Doctors try to target the exact location of the delivery so that small dosage of medicine can relieve the pain without side-effects.
Hi Sir, I am suffering from back pain sir for the last 6 months, how to reduce back pain and also which medicine have to use to reduce back pain sir.
Hi. My mom is suffering from body pain since last 8 to 10 years. She feels pain in joints. We consulted to many doctors but no improvements. Her hand and foot swells many times.
Lower back pain is a very common issue and can take place due to numerous reasons. However, one of its main causes is a ligament strain or back muscle strain. Microscopic tear or excessive stretching of ligaments can take place due to lifting very heavy objects, doing enormously strenuous task or due to a sudden twisted movement. These conditions are most likely to be experienced by individuals ranging between the ages of 30 and 60. Other causes of lower back pain include back injury, arthritis of back bone joints, infections in the lower back area, and in very rare cases, tumours.
In case of acute back pain, these are a few important things that should be definitely kept in mind.
- It is absolutely essential to take rest for a couple of days and avoid any sort of stressful activity. Although back pain is self-limiting, if you take proper care, it can be cured in a few days. However, if proper rest is not taken, the situation may become worse.
- Using the black belt, also known as lumbo sacral corset, is a good idea. This can actually be of enormous help to individuals who have been suffering from lower back pain for a long period of time.
- As already mentioned, one of the main causes of these kinds of mishaps are sudden jerky movements, twisted movements, heavy weight lifting etc. So, it is necessary to avoid such circumstances, or else, a more acute back pain situation may arise due to slipping of one of the discs from the spinal cord.
- As much as you like long drives and bike rides, these are a strict no. Any prolonged sitting or standing activity needs to be avoided. It is important that the tear caused in the muscles due to what-so-ever reason heals properly and prolonged stay in a tensed muscle position would definitely not help the cause.
- Although these back pains can be handled at home by following the discussed steps, using simple analgesics or muscle relaxants prescribed by the doctor can be a way to speed up the process of recovering the strained ligament.
Apart from these important steps, regular exercise to strengthen the core body muscles is a great way to avoid such ligament strains in the future. However, if you feel that even after following the precautionary measures, you problem doesn’t subside, visit an experienced doctor for his advice. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
