If you suffer from chronic pain due to problems with the brain or spine, Florida Hospital's Pain Medicine Centers can help. Conducted in an outpatient care setting, our program focuses on whole person health, blending the wellness of the mind, body and spirit. We believe it’s important not only to treat the pain, but the lifestyle and environmental conditions that may be causing or contributing to this neurological disease.
Your spine is a remarkable combination of strong bones, flexible ligaments and tendons, large muscles and highly sensitive nerves. It is designed to be incredibly strong, protecting the highly sensitive nerve roots, yet highly flexible, providing for mobility on many different planes. Most of us take this juxtaposition of strength, structure and flexibility for granted in our everyday lives—until something goes wrong. Once we experience pain in the spine, we're driven to know what's wrong and what it will take to relieve the pain and prevent a recurrence.
Sometimes, this pain can be the result of something neurological. Many breakthroughs regarding the biological and genetic causes of migraine have been made in recent years. And while certain of the exact biological mechanisms are still being studied, it is known that migraine is caused by neurological disease, not psychological mechanisms. Hence, breakthroughs in brain surgery offer hope and relief for millions of people who suffer from the physical and emotional pain of migraine.
The road to wellness begins with a complete diagnostic assessment so we can develop a comprehensive pain management plan just for you. This will assist us in improving the quality of your day-to-day activities as well as teach you valuable self-management skills. This assessment includes a look at your health history, a review of any previous records, diagnostictreatments and a physical examination. Once these are completed, your physician will outline treatment options, which may range from interventional therapies to radiofrequency therapy and therapeutic injections.
