KINDS OF PAIN

There are several types of pain:

PAIN TREATMENT

Nowadays there is a wide variety of treatments for pain, because it is different from person to person, this forces to individualize the treatment, which can include only one method or a combination of drugs, therapies and procedures.

Among the drugs used for the treatment of pain there are narcotic painkillers, anti-inflammatory medicines, anti-depressants, anti-epileptic and local anesthetics. Besides, we can also use injections of local anesthetics alone or associated with steroids or drugs similar to morphine, around the nerves, or into the joints.

We use relaxation techniques like self-bio regulation, which reduces muscle spasms and stress.

The use of these medications in necessary cases is carried out in areas which ensure the sterility, and there is also a fluoroscopic guide which ensures its accuracy.
