Pain Management Q & A

What conditions can pain management services treat?

Chronic pain can result from injuries or trauma to your body, making it difficult to work or stay physically active. You may also develop chronic pain from underlying medical conditions.

Some of the common conditions the experts at Michigan Neurology Associates & PC can treat include:

  • Arthritis
  • Headaches
  • Nerve injuries
  • Spinal disorders

The team of knowledgeable physicians can also diagnose and treat unexplained pain in your back, neck, or joints to help eliminate the pain and increase your long-term functionality.

What treatments are used for pain management?

Depending on your condition, the medical team creates a custom treatment plan to address your pain. Each plan considers your past medical history, current health, and the severity of your pain to ensure your health remains a top priority.

One common treatment option for relieving pain in the spine is epidural steroid injections, which deliver anesthetic and steroid medications to reduce inflammation and pain due to arthritis, degenerative conditions, and herniated discs.

If you experience frequent muscle pain due to tension or injury, trigger point injections may be an effective way to relieve pain quickly. This type of treatment also uses anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medicines to alleviate muscle-related pain.

For chronic pain not relieved by anesthetic injections, the Michigan Neurology Associates & PC team may recommend radiofrequency technologies that destroy nerve fibers responsible for transmitting pain signals to your brain. The physicians also offer innovative bone marrow concentrate therapy to speed up healing and address chronic pain.

What is bone marrow concentrate?

This injectable therapy uses your body’s own stem cells found in your bone marrow, the spongy tissue in the center of your bones. Marrow contains specialized stem cells that can repair cells damaged by injury or disease. Your body’s natural healing ability is boosted by an injection of cells that can rebuild damaged muscles, tendons, and even bone to give you long-term pain relief.

The Michigan Neurology Associates & PC medical team extract a sample of your bone marrow from your hip and process it in a centrifuge to separate growth factors from other materials. They then inject the marrow concentrate into areas of pain.

Within weeks of treatment, you can expect a significant reduction in pain and enhanced functionality of the affected area. As new stem cells grow, your results continue to improve.
