Chronic Pain Q & A

What causes chronic pain?

Pain is chronic when it lasts longer than six months, and it may worsen over time, even if you’re receiving treatment.

A number of conditions can result in chronic pain. Dr. Wynn offers advanced treatment options for a wide variety of chronic pain conditions, including:

  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Complex regional pain syndrome

Dr. Wynn can also help you better manage pain that develops after a failed back or neck surgery and pain that results from an auto accident or other traumatic event.

How is chronic pain diagnosed?

To better understand the root cause of your chronic pain, Dr. Wynn reviews your personal and family medical history. During a physical exam, he tests the flexibility and strength of your joints and muscles. 

Dr. Wynn also checks for swelling and other abnormalities that can help pinpoint the cause of your pain.  

You may need diagnostic imaging tests, like X-rays or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to provide Dr. Wynn with a close-up view of the structures in your spine, joints, and other areas. 

Imaging tests can confirm conditions like arthritis and degenerative disc disease and provide information about the extent of the damage that is causing your pain.

How is chronic pain treated?

Once Dr. Wynn confirms your diagnosis, he designs a treatment plan to ease your pain and slow the progression of a degenerative disease.

If medications aren’t enough to control your chronic pain, you may benefit from nonsurgical, minimally invasive treatments like:

  • Facet joint injections
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Spinal cord stimulation
  • Ultrasound-guided nerve blocks

In addition to pain management therapies, Dr. Wynn may recommend holistic treatments like acupuncture to increase your blood circulation, support muscle relaxation, and ease your pain naturally.
