Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a condition that causes the immune system to attack a person's joints, leading to pain, swelling, and stiffness. Unlike other types of arthritis, RA affects joints bilaterally and can affect other parts of the body such as the skin, lungs, or heart.Although women are more likely to have RA, men also can be affected. In total, approximately one percent of the population suffers from this condition.

In a patient with RA, an unknown event triggers the immune system to move immune cells into the tissues of the joints, creating inflammation that causes painful symptoms and eventually wears away cartilage that cushions the neighboring bones. In this way, untreated RA can lead to deterioration of a patient's condition as the cartilage and bones become increasingly damaged.Early treatment is critical to slowing or even stopping this progression. An interdisciplinary approach integrating medicine, physical therapy, and occupational therapy will help you manage RA symptoms.

Discs are soft, sponge-like structures that lie between each vertebra in the spine to cushion movement and absorb impact. Sometimes injury or normal wear-and-tear can cause discs to extend out of their normal place within the spinal column, or "bulge." Many times a bulging disc is asymptomatic and the patient is not even aware that it has happened. Sometimes, however, the disc will push on a nerve or other surrounding tissue, causing a number of uncomfortable symptoms.

Common symptoms of a bulging disc include pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the arms or legs. Because the disc puts pressure on a nerve in the spine, and spinal nerves travel throughout the body, a classic sign of a bulging disc is one or more of these symptoms traveling down an arm or leg.

Often bulging discs will heal on their own with rest, over-the-counter medication, and heat and ice packs. Physical therapy, medication, chiropractic care, or interventional pain management may also be recommended by your doctor depending on the severity and nature of your condition. Severe cases that do not respond to conservative treatment may require surgery.

The pain specialists at Pain Management Center will evaluate your condition and determine which treatments can help you feel better fast as well as rehabilitate the underlying condition so you can stay healthy and active. Our interventional therapies are designed to provide immediate relief while avoiding surgery and heavy medication.

Degenerative disc disease is a condition in which one of the discs of the spine wears down as part of a normal aging process. All people develop some degree of degeneration in their discs as they get older; however, not everyone experiences discomfort as a result of the degeneration.

Painful symptoms occur for patients with degenerative disc disease when the changes in the disc impact the surrounding tissues in some way. For example, perhaps the disc causes swelling in the surrounding area, which then puts pressure on a nerve or causes a muscle spasm. Generally the pain is mild and comes and goes, flaring up depending on a person's activity level on a particular day. Certain types of activity can also make pain worse, while different positions may help a patient feel better.

At the Pain Management Center, we specialize in relieving your discomfort so we can help you rehabilitate the problem area for a long-term solution to your pain. Contact us today to meet with one of our specialists.

The spine is made up of a column of bones, called vertebrae. If these bones were to be stacked on top of each other with nothing in between, the spine would be stiff and inflexible. Instead, these bones are separated by joints that allow them to move freely against one another. These joints are called facet joints.

There are two facet joints at each level of the spine; that is, each vertebra has a facet joint on its left and right side. These joints can become irritated or injured due to an accident or normal deterioration that comes with age. Such damage can cause a great deal of pain and stiffness, often accompanied by powerful muscle spasms. Pain caused by facet joints in the neck can also cause headaches.

Continued deterioration can be accompanied by arthritis-like symptoms such as swelling, bone spur growth, and decreased cartilage. Patients who suffer from these symptoms are said to have facet joint syndrome.

Common treatments for facet syndrome include physical therapy, heat, chiropractic, medication, and interventional pain management.

The experts at Pain Management Center are well-versed in the diagnosis and treatment of facet syndrome. Call us today to find out how our treatments can help you feel better while avoiding surgery and heavy medication.

The spine is made up of a column of bones called vertebrae. The vertebrae are protected from coming into contact with one another by soft, spongy pillows called discs. Healthy discs cushion the vertebrae during spinal movement and absorb impact when you walk.

Sometimes, discs can become injured or diseased, causing the disc to bulge out of its usual place. Severe injury can even cause the disc to rupture. Often a disc can herniate and not cause any pain; however, sometimes the disc can put pressure on neighborhood tissues or nerves, which can be extremely painful.

A classic sign of a herniated disc are symptoms that radiate down one or more arms or legs. Symptoms can include pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness. Usually a bulging disc in the neck, or cervical spine, will cause problems in the arms, while a disc in the low back, or lumbar spine, will result in leg symptoms.

In many cases, a herniated disc will heal on its own with rest and palliative care such as heat and ice packs. If the pain persists, conservative treatments such as physical therapy or chiropractic manipulation may be helpful. Only the most severe cases require surgical intervention. Many patients find that interventional pain management is an excellent solution to their disc-related back pain as it allows them to avoid surgery and heavy medication.

Whether your herniated disc was caused by injury or normal, age-related wear-and-tear, the specialists at Pain Management Center can evaluate your condition and prescribe a course of treatment that will help you feel better fast.

As a weight-bearing joint, the hip is designed to support our bodies while still permitting a large range of motion. Both injury and normal wear-and-tear can cause damage to the joint, leading to a number of painful conditions.

Perhaps the most common source of hip pain is arthritis, which can also affect other joints of the leg. The hips and legs can also be painful due to sporting activity, which can lead to irritated or injured ligaments, tendons, joints, or muscles. Sometimes discomfort in the legs can include burning or tingling. These symptoms may be a sign of radiculopathy.

Exercise is not just for staying healthy and losing weight. Performing well-planned, therapeutic exercises also helps improve your condition and relieve your pain.Movement provides important stimulation to the injured area, which is crucial to the healing process. It also stretches the surrounding tissues, which improves stiffness and increases range of motion. Strengthening the area is also important to prevent future injury.

Many patients who are suffering from pain or other uncomfortable symptoms do not feel comfortable exercising. Either movement makes the pain worse, or they are worried about injuring themselves further. However, failure to move around means that the muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and even the discs in the spine will get stiff, potentially leading to additional pain, swelling, and stiffness.

While your painful condition may be preventing you from staying active, our therapists will show you ways to keep moving that will not irritate or worsen your condition. We provide you with a customized home exercise program that will rehabilitate your condition while allowing you to prevent future injuries. Also, our interventional pain management anesthesiologist will perform treatments to relieve swelling and pain so that you can do the exercises more freely.Call Flint Hills Pain Management today and find out how our combination of pain relief and rehabilitation can help you get moving again.

If you are involved in an automobile accident, slip and fall, or other personal injury, you may be surprised to learn that injuries related to the incident do not always manifest themselves immediately. Many soft tissue injuries especially do not become painful until the next day or even later. For this reason, it is important to seek medical attention after an accident, even if you do not feel injured.

The most common injuries related to mild accidents are "whiplash" type, soft tissue injuries that leave the patient sore and achy for an extended period of time. While these injuries generally respond well to home care such as heat and ice packs, rest, and over the counter anti-inflammatories, some patients will also benefit from physical therapy, massage, or chiropractic manipulation.

If your accident left you seriously injured or in a great deal of pain, you will likely need continued medical care after emergency medical attention has been provided. One of the specialists included in your treatment plan may be an interventional pain management physician, who can help your recovery by providing immediate pain relief so that you can rehabilitate the underlying condition with your chiropractor or physical therapist.

If you have pain or other lingering symptoms after an accident, please call us today to schedule a free initial consultation and see how our treatment systems can help you feel better fast.

As creatures of habit, we have a tendency to perform the same tasks in the same way, over and over again. Often these tasks are related to work or sport. Some repetitive tasks may include lifting or other behaviors that place a lot of stress on our bodies. Although performing such a motion one time may not cause an injury, performing the same motion repeatedly day after day can lead to minor inflammation. Because of the repetition of the stressful action, this minor irritation never has the opportunity to heal. In the long run, this accumulation of stress can cause a painful injury. Our pain specialists see injuries of this nature all the time. If you have a repetitive job or other activity that has led to pain or other discomfort, give our office a call to schedule a consultation. One of our doctors will evaluate your condition and discuss the history of the problem with you before proposing a course of treatment to get you back to work or play.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a condition that causes the immune system to attack a person's joints, leading to pain, swelling, and stiffness. Unlike other types of arthritis, RA affects joints bilaterally and can affect other parts of the body such as the skin, lungs, or heart. Although women are more likely to have RA, men also can be affected. In total, approximately one percent of the population suffers from this condition.

In a patient with RA, an unknown event triggers the immune system to move immune cells into the tissues of the joints, creating inflammation that causes painful symptoms and eventually wears away cartilage that cushions the neighboring bones. In this way, untreated RA can lead to deterioration of a patient's condition as the cartilage and bones become increasingly damaged. Early treatment is critical to slowing or even stopping this progression. An interdisciplinary approach integrating medicine, physical therapy, and occupational therapy will help you manage RA symptoms.

Although traumatic injury can cause this problem, it is more commonly the result of deterioration over time.

For some patients, simple lifestyle changes such as sleeping in a different position relieve the problem.
