Understanding Chronic Pain and Disc Injuries

Chronic pain can significantly impact an individual’s quality of life, affecting their physical and emotional well-being, daily functioning, sleep patterns, and overall mood. Chronic pain persists beyond the normal healing time and may not have an obvious cause or easily identifiable origin. It can be caused by various factors, including underlying medical conditions, injuries, nerve damage, inflammation, or psychological factors. Managing chronic pain often requires a multidisciplinary approach.

Back pain: Chronic pain can affect the upper, middle, or lower back, often associated with conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or muscle strains.
Neck pain: Chronic pain in the neck area can result from conditions like cervical spondylosis, whiplash injuries, or muscle tension.
Headaches: Chronic headaches, including migraines or tension headaches, can cause persistent pain in the head and neck region.
Joint pain: Chronic pain can affect joints such as the knees, hips, shoulders, or wrists, often associated with conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or repetitive strain injuries.
Nerve pain: Conditions like neuropathy or nerve compression syndromes can lead to chronic pain along the affected nerve pathways, causing symptoms like shooting pain, tingling, or numbness.
Fibromyalgia: This chronic pain disorder can cause widespread pain throughout the body, along with other symptoms like fatigue, sleep disturbances, and cognitive difficulties.
Musculoskeletal pain: Chronic pain can affect muscles, tendons, or ligaments throughout the body, resulting from conditions like fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, or chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS).

What We Do For Chronic Pain Care?

At Socal Brain Center, we provide a multi-faceted approach to chronic pain treatment:

Comprehensive Examination: We begin with a thorough evaluation to understand the nature and extent of your pain. Our specialists will identify the causes and contributing factors, which may include disc injuries or degenerative disc diseases. Our comprehensive physical and neurological examination aims to identify exactly where the root cause of your pain is stemming from.
Our detailed exam includes a complete physical and neurological examination, and may in some cases require imaging such as X-ray or MRI.

Specialized Therapies:

  • Spinal manipulation: We often use controlled, targeted movements to relieve pressure within joints, aiming to improve spinal function, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain.
  • Soft tissue therapies: The doctor may incorporate various soft tissue techniques such as massage, myofascial release, or trigger point therapy to address muscle tension, knots, or scar tissue that can contribute to chronic pain.
  • Exercise and stretching: There may be specific exercises or stretches we give to help improve flexibility, strengthen supportive muscles, and promote better posture, all of which can aid in reducing chronic pain.
  • Lifestyle advice: We often provide guidance on ergonomics, posture, and lifestyle modifications to minimize pain triggers and
  • Complementary therapies: We may incorporate additional therapies such as electrical stimulation, low level laser photobiomodulation, or heat/cold therapy to complement the treatment approach and provide pain relief.
