Comprehensive Pain Management
Pain is produced by the brain through neurofibers to sensory endings, making it a neurologic condition. That said, there are many sources of pain, which require an accurate diagnosis before treatment can begin. These sources of pain can include:
- Back pain
- Head and facial pain
- Neuropathic pain
- Myofascial pain
- Pain from trauma or injuries
Drexel Neurosciences Institute's pain specialists focus on the accurate diagnosis and management of pain. We start with a diagnosis, identify the source of pain, and use a multidisciplinary approach to effectively treat our patients to help them return to their daily activities.
Our physicians within the Institute work together closely to provide a comprehensive treatment plan. Treatment options can include medication, as well as more complex options including implantable nerve stimulators, intrathecal (into the spinal fluid) drug delivery systems, and minimally invasive or traditional surgery.
