Pain in the trunk of your body makes it difficult to perform everyday tasks and may interfere with the treatment for the underlying condition. Texas Pain Institute offers interventional pain management services for residents of Fort Worth, Denton, Southlake, and nearby areas of Texas who live with trunk pain and need relief from the discomfort.
What is Trunk Pain?
Trunk pain is any type of chronic discomfort that you experience in your chest, base of the neck, back, abdomen, or pelvic region. This can cover a range of medical conditions, so your primary care or specialty physician will develop a plan for treatment and make a referral to Texas Pain Institute. Our interventional pain management services aim to reduce the discomfort to help you focus on recovering and healing your body.
Do I Have Trunk Pain?
Trunk pain may be an indication of potentially serious medical conditions. If you are experiencing pain in your torso, we recommend that you seek medical attention quickly to find out the nature of your condition. Chronic trunk pain differs from acute pain in that it lasts for three months or longer and may involve sharp, shooting or aching in the abdomen, chest, pelvis, shoulders, back or base of the neck. Your physician will diagnose your condition and recommend interventional pain management services at Texas Pain Institute.
What Are the Benefits of Treatment for Trunk Pain?
The primary goal behind our interventional pain management modalities is to relieve you of the chronic trunk pain that disrupts your life and prevents you from fully engaging in other aspects of your healthcare. You may benefit from one treatment or you may need a series of treatments.
How is Trunk Pain Treated?
- Pharmaceuticals to help with inflammation and discomfort
- Injections such as epidural steroid injections, to reduce inflammation and numb the affected nerves
- Minimally invasive spine surgery to destroy the overactive nerves
- Nerve blocks to reduce or prevent pain signals from being sent to the brain
What Should I Expect After Treatment for Trunk Pain?
In many cases, our patients experience a significant reduction in chronic trunk pain after each treatment. You may have some lingering pain for up to three weeks. We also see a return of chronic trunk pain in some patients and perform additional treatments as needed.
