Today’s world is a time of hard work, intense competition, sleep deprivation and much more. Due to this daily grind, it is almost impossible for people to take care of their health and well being. To add on to this, things like work-related stress, striking the right work-life balance and managing time take a major toll on our physical and mental health. So, what happens when these negative elements take over your mind? They start affecting your body in the worst ways possible. Issues like body aches have become very common among every other person. Fuelled by an improper lifestyle and mental tensions, body aches are a very difficult problem to get rid of.
The Center For Wellness And Pain Care Of Las Vegas offers patients a variety of treatments, which are targeted towards multiple key areas that are likely to suffer from chronic pain. For example, the Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection relieves pain in the neck, shoulders and arms caused mainly by pinched nerves. Conditions such as herniated discs and spinal stenosis can compress nerves, causing inflammation and pain. This injection contains medication which reduces the swelling significantly, thereby reducing the pain. When it comes to back pain, there can be multiple causes. In case of a spine fracture, a procedure called kyphoplasty is available at the Center.
Kyphoplasty, also known as balloon vertebroplasty, is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure, which is conducted to treat spine fractures that are caused due to osteoporosis. In this procedure, the affected spine is identified, and a syringe is inserted into the bone, through the skin. Once the syringe is perfectly positioned, bone cement is filled into the cavity of the broken vertebra. While most cases require just one injection, two or three may be required in certain cases. Once the cavity is filled, the cement is left to dry, thereby fixing the vertebra. The opening in the skin is then closed. This procedure is known to give quick pain relief.
If the patient wishes to go for a non-surgical procedure, they can always go for the Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant. Since it is believed that electrical pulses prevent pain signals from being received by the brain, this non-surgical procedure uses electrical impulses to relieve chronic pain of the back, arms, and legs. Also, this process helps people suffering from neuropathic pain as well as people for whom traditional treatments have not been successful.
Body aches may be for a short term or long term, but it is essential to take care of them at the early stages itself. If you think that your body ache may be of a severe type, book an appointment with us. In case of emergencies, call 911.
