Having a constant back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain or other nerve related pain that just cannot go away even with the help of medical and surgical interventions requires a visit to a trained pain specialist. Pain actually encompasses a wide spectrum of disorders including acute pain, chronic pain and cancer pain, inflammatory pain (arthritis or infections) and sometimes a combination of these.
There are various pain syndromes, most of which are associated with inflammation and injury such as sciatica, arthritis, fibromyalgia and other muscle pain. Joint pain within the joint is a common cause of hip pain, ankle pain, knee pain, spine pain and thigh pain. Neuropathic pain or nerve pain is a complex, chronic pain state that usually is accompanied by tissue injury. With neuropathic pain, the nerve fibers themselves may be damaged, dysfunctional, or injured. These damaged nerve fibers send incorrect signals to other pain centers.
A pain management specialist is a physician with special training in evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of different types of pain. The pain can be so severe that a patient may not be able to sit or walk comfortably.
Pain can also arise from causes such as surgery, injury, nerve damage, and metabolic problems such as diabetes. Pain owing to arthritis is a result of inflammation due to degeneration or in the case of rheumatic arthritis, an autoimmune attack on a joint. Other causes of severe pain include the slipped disc phenomenon which might arise due to vertebral fracture or trauma. A slipped disk might result in severe back pains and lower back pain.
