Multiple factors are the reason of neck pain, but the most common neck pain causes are arthritis, car accidents and sports injuries, also some other things can cause trauma to the neck and result in chronic neck pain.
At PriMMed, our approach works well for neck pain, as most neck pain cases require a more elaborate treatment program. Our pain management doctors may recommend a combination of procedures, medication, and alternative therapy like massage or physical therapy to alleviate neck pain. If you have pain in your neck, we recommend you to make an appointment with a pain management doctor at PriMMed as soon as possible, as even mild chronic neck pain can evolve into a more significant neck problem over time.
Back pain is the most common reason people see pain specialists. Treatments they seek may include medication, physical therapy or occupational therapy, and interventional procedures. Specialists may eliminate the need for traditional back surgery and are able to reduce or eliminate their need for pain medications.
Secondary only to the common cold, back pain is one of the important reasons people visit their doctor.

While the surgery may have been executed flawlessly patients may continue to complain of significant amount of pain following the surgery. Post laminectomy syndrome is also often referred to as failed back surgery syndrome, and refers to the continuation of pain and disability following traditional open back surgery. While the surgery may have been executed flawlessly and is not the fault of the surgeon, many patients will find that they are still in a significant amount of pain following the surgery.
Another cause of post laminectomy syndrome is that the original surgery does relieve the pain but the patient suffers from a recurrent disc herniation, or scar tissue forms at the surgical site and begins to create its own nerve compression. No matter the challenge, the team at PriMMed is glad to help find a resolution.
Sciatica is a condition that is characterized by low back pain that may be referred into the buttocks and legs. This pain is due to pressure put on the sciatic nerve and can be caused by disc herniation or disc bulging.
To effectively treat sciatic pain, the pain management doctors at PriMMed will focus on relieving pressure and inflammation through the use of anti-inflammatory medications and minimally invasive procedures like epidural steroid injections.
