Pain Management

Pain can be simple or complex, depending on the cause of the pain. Though there are many sources of pain, they have been classified into two groups: nociceptive pain and neuropathic pain. Many factors influence how one feels pain. They include age, gender, and emotional well-being. Understanding the cause and learning effective ways to cope with your pain can improve your quality of life.

Nociceptive Pain

When something hurts, we become aware of it because the damaged tissue or injury triggers pain signals. These signals travel from the spinal cord to the brain through peripheral nerves. Arm pain, leg pain, and back pain are examples of this type.

Radicular pain is a type of nociceptive pain that originates when the nerve roots are irritated. The pain radiates to the arm or leg. A herniated disc is a typical example of this type of pain. This pain is associated with loss of reflexes, tingling sensations, numbness, and weakness (radiculopathy). We take extreme care for nociceptive pain at our pain management hospital in Hyderabad.

Neuropathic Pain

This type of pain is related to nerves. When something happens to the nerves (damage or disease affects the nerves) or the nerves get hurt, we feel the pain. Though there is no apparent source of this pain, it can occur spontaneously. Peripheral neuropathy is a classic example of this type of pain.

Other causes of pain include headaches, plantar fasciitis, myofasciitis, torticollis, piriformis syndrome, compression fractures, coccydynia, peripheral nerve pain, facial pain, post-herpetic neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, cancer pain.
