What is Shingles Pain?
Shingles pain is a complication of shingles that is also known as post-herpetic neuralgia. Shingles commonly occurs in adult patients who was infected with the chicken pox virus as a child. The condition causes painful, blistering rashes to appear on the skin. These rashes can cause itching or burning sensations, which tend to become quite painful. Of course, not all shingles symptoms are severe enough to necessitate treatment. Some patients may be able to achieve relief with home remedies. For patients who have extreme cases or severe symptoms, The Pain Management Center is proud to offer a handful of treatment options.
How is Shingles Pain Treated?
Mild cases of shingles may not require professional care, and may not even cause significant pain. For moderate to severe cases, however, many patients choose to seek treatment to soothe their symptoms as they overcome the condition. At The Pain Management Center, we may prescribe medications to manage these symptoms in conjunction with other treatments. In some cases, nerve block injections can be performed to block pain caused by shingles. In extreme cases, we may recommend spinal cord stimulation to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain. These treatments can help alleviate pain and other sensations throughout the shingles treatment process.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Shingles Pain Treatment?
The results from your shingles pain treatment will depend on the treatment method used as well as the extent of your symptoms. Some of our treatments may be able to provide long-lasting relief, while others may need to be repeated on a regular basis to maintain your results. During your initial visit, we will discuss your condition and your treatment goals in order to define the results that you can expect from your shingles pain treatment.
