Pain

Pain medicine deals with improving the quality of life for those living with pain issues. 

Pain occasionally resolves once the underlying problem is treated.

However, when pain due to an injury or disease persists, then the role of pain medicine is to relieve suffering. 

Treatment approaches to chronic pain include:

  • Oral medication such as painkillers and anti-depressants
  • Physical therapy
  • Psychological therapy
  • Exercise
  • Interventional procedures, such as steroid injections

Hi, Pain in the gluteal and hamstring region may be difficult to identify due to the complex interaction of deep muscles (also known as the hip rotators), the bigger superficial muscles (such as the hamstrings and glutes) and the main nerve that runs in the back of the leg (the sciatic nerve). Th...

Hi I am sorry to hear about your predicament. Pain is of course a complex phenomenon with an overlap between stimulation of pain fibres and significant overlay of an individual's pain perception. Sometimes, during procedures, superficial nerves can get injured and leads to ...

Hi there, one other way to improve your TMD pain will be to get plenty of jaw rest. Jaw joints are similar to other joints in our body. Muscles, ligaments and articular disks form part of their anatomy. Jaw rest can be achieved by the following: Go on a soft diet and cut your food into small po...

Thank you for your question - certainly an interesting one. Without knowing where exactly the injection was placed it is hard to know what effect you should have experienced. Nevertheless, steroid injections typically last a few months and allow the individual to do other rehab...

These symptoms are consistent with a migraine. If they occur frequently, it is advisable to take steps to reduce the attack severity and frequency. This can be done by well-chosen daily preventative medication used for about 6 months. Although there is no cure for migraines, the ...

Back pain can be due to many different problems including nerve irritation from disc bulges, facet joint irritation, muscle or ligament issues or degenerative changes. If your symptoms keep coming back, then its certainly useful to look into why it is happening. Strengthenin...

It's hard to work out where your symptoms are located without actually seeing you, but numbness and pain around the front of the hip, in the absence of back pain, could be due to a condition called Meralgia Paraesthetica. This is were the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve becomes ...

Dear Noer Thank you for your email and I am sorry to hear about your ongoing pain symptoms. This can be an issue after surgery even if it does resolve the disc issue/symptoms that you were experiencing. The only way to resolve pain is to assess you and consider the pain gener...

Dear Phoebe, Thank you for your question! Painkillers are very useful in the management of acute back pain that is limiting function and your ability to take part in normal day-to-day activities, but as the name implies, all that you are doing is settling the symptoms. The World...

Dear Nathan, Thanks for the D2D. This is certainly a concern for patients with a widely degenerative spine where multiple discs have herniated and there maybe other wear and tear changes. The simple answer is - we don’t know! Your surgeon will operate with the...
