Pain Management


If pain becomes chronic, it can disrupt your life and affect the people you love and care about. Our doctors at Umbrella Health Care Systems offers online pain management, nonnarcotic treatments that minimize the effects of pain on your life. We have physicians who specialize in managing and treating chronic pain.

Cancer-Related Pain

Pain can result from cancer or its treatments — even after treatment, in some cases. If you have pain during or after active treatment, we can help:

Relieve pain from cancer itself, especially if the cancer is advanced

Relieve pain due to cancer treatments, such as surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy

Manage chronic pain after cancer

Joint And Muscle Pain

Musculoskeletal pain affects bones, muscles and connective tissue such as cartilage, ligaments and tendons. The most common causes of this pain are arthritis and injury. Musculoskeletal pain that we treat includes:

Joint pain:

Inflammation (pain and swelling) in major joints such as the hip, knee and shoulder

Malignant compression fractures:

Fractures in vertebrae that result from cancerous tumors, usually metastatic (tumors that start in another part of the body and spread to the vertebrae)

Benign compression fractures:

Vertebral fractures typically due to osteoporosis, a condition that causes bones to become weak and brittle

Sacroiliac (SI) joint pain:

Pain in the low back and buttocks due to arthritis, injury or another problem with the SI joint

Neck And Back Pain

One of the most common causes of chronic pain is back and neck pain. Sharp pain or dull aches can result from injury, strain, poor posture, wear and tear or many other reasons. We treat pain all along the spine, from the top of your neck to your tailbone,including:

Degenerative disc disease: Vertebrae (spine bones) that rub together as the discs (rubbery tissue between vertebrae) wear out due to age or injury

Facet joint syndrome: Damage to facet joints (connections between vertebrae) due to injury, disc deterioration or wear and tear

Failed back syndrome: Back pain that returns after surgery

Herniated disc: A disc that breaks open (ruptures) or moves out of place due to injury or strenuous activity

Radiculopathy (pinched nerve): A damaged or compressed nerve root in the spine, causing pain and other symptoms in various areas of the body depending on where it develops

Sciatica: Radiculopathy that develops in the low back

Spinal stenosis: A narrowed area of the spinal canal that causes pain due to compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots

Nerve-Related Pain

Neuropathy, also called neuralgia, is nerve damage that causes pain, tingling, numbness and muscle weakness. Nerve-related pain can result from injury or conditions such as diabetes and atherosclerosis. Some common types of neuropathy include:

Complex regional pain syndrome:Chronic pain, usually in one limb, due to a problem with pain nerves that sometimes develops after an injury

Peripheral neuropathy: Neuropathy that affects nerves outside the brain and spinal cord, most commonly in the legs and feet; includes diabetic neuropathy

Postherpetic neuralgia: Nerve damage that develops after shingles, a viral infection that causes a blistering rash, usually on one side of the torso
