Painless Pain Treatments

Painful treatments are over! Today we have several approved painless methods and therapies so that no one needs to worry about going to the doctor anymore. Of course, the pain treatments providing the treatment needs to have the necessary specialist knowledge and the appropriate technical equipment at hand. In our practice we offer a choice between different anaesthetic methods: apart from the most frequently applied local anaesthesia you can also decide on sedation. You will see: your treatment will be over before it even started!

Rapid Effect

The most common method of pain relief is the traditional use of 'on demand' intramuscular opioid or NSAI injections. Better pain relief can be obtained with newer techniques such as epidural, local opioids, anasthetics, steroids and patient controlled analgesia. However, some techniques such as pre-emptive analgesia have not been fully evaluated and others, such as infiltrating local anaesthetic into wounds, may not reduce the patient's analgesic requirements. Patients should be counselled before surgery because an explanation of what to expect, and other simple measures, may reduce their analgesic needs.

Long Effect

Radiofrequency neurotomy (also called radiofrequency ablation or lesioning) is a minimally invasive procedure that can provide lasting relief to those suffering from facet joint pain. In fact, multiple clinical studies show that radiofrequency neurotomy significantly reduces pain severity and frequency for 1 to 2 years in the majority of patients.

Functional Joints

Flexibility is the skill that enables us to perform the movements in a big range in the joints. The maximum development of flexibility is not necessary. The most significant is the mobility of the dorsal segment of the spine, the hip and the shoulder joints. The factors that affect flexibility are; the elasticity of muscles and joint ligaments; the amount of the resting tension of the muscles; relaxation skills; technical skills; outdoor temperature, time of the day.
