Injections can be particularly helpful for patients dealing with pain that has not responded to physical therapy and other treatments. Additionally, injections have proven to lessen inflammation and decrease the effect of nerve damage and treat spinal stenosis. Texas Institute of Pain and Spine’s pain management doctor, Dr. LaFleur treats chronic pain of all stripes with a wide array of procedures, including:
- Spinal Cord Stimulation
- Nerve Blocks
Vertebral Compression Fracture
Vertebral Compression Fractures are painful conditions that can linger for years if you don’t take care of them properly. This condition happens when a block of your vertebrae becomes compressed. Elderly patients and people of all ages diagnosed with Cancer are at risk, particularly if cancer has spread to the bones. Percutaneous Kyphoplasty, performed at the Texas Institute of Pain and Spine is a new procedure that has resulted in decreased pain and symptoms in our patients.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
CRPS is a syndrome typified by extensive pain in an area over a long period and can result in discoloration around the area and swelling. Nerve injuries can be difficult to treat with at-home remedies and physical therapy, and the Texas Institute of Pain and Spine is fully capable of treating CRPS. Nerve blocks and spinal cord stimulations have both been effective in treating patients with this condition.
