Pain is an unpleasant, sometimes unbearable sensation caused by irritation of nerve endings. This is a kind of reaction of the body, or rather, a signal designed to warn of existing or probable tissue damage. To some extent, pain is our friend, it says that it is time to intervene and change something. There are different types of pain. For example, acute is a recent onset and short-term pain associated with an illness or injury. The cause of such pain is easier to identify and easier to treat.
Another thing is chronic pain. It is accepted that this is pain that lasts more than 3 months. It is often difficult to understand its causes, it is difficult to achieve good results in its treatment. To treat chronic pain, you have to combine different drugs and treatments, involve different specialists.
To find the cause of the pain, a high-quality examination by a specialist doctor with a detailed history is required, as well as complex instrumental diagnostics, whether it be MRI, CT or ultrasound. Finding and eliminating the cause in many cases allows you to get rid of the pain itself. In the case of chronic pain, it is necessary to apply different methods of pain treatment that do not allow to influence the causes of the disorder. It is necessary to consider such pain as an independent disease resorting to complex treatment. Sometimes, such treatment is a long process. At K+31, chronic pain is treated by specialists from the Pain Clinic.
The main goal is to reduce the suffering of patients with chronic pain and improve their quality of life. Along with pharmacotherapy, it is necessary to resort to interventional methods of treatment. The latter include blockade and radiofrequency ablation.
During a blockade, medications are injected directly into the area of the source of pain. The effect of the procedure lasts, on average, about several months. Sometimes a course and/or repeated blockade is required.
Another method of pain relief is radiofrequency ablation. This is the destruction of radiofrequency exposure of sensitive roots with special electrodes. The duration of the effect is up to a year. The procedure is most often possible to carry out on the day of treatment, without specific preparation.
Unfortunately, blockades do not cure the disease itself, but only reduce the intensity of pain due to the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of drugs. Sometimes it is necessary to refuse the patient a blockade in favor of surgical treatment. It should also be understood, and we ourselves explain this to patients, that it is impossible to cure pain without the participation of the patient himself. Yes, pain is exhausting, changes the psyche, a person gets used to pain, perceives it as a norm of life, with which nothing can be done. All this reduces the quality of life. But with all this, you should not withdraw into yourself, you should continue daily life activity, combining it with physical therapy, swimming. It is important to have an internal conversation with yourself, tune in to change your lifestyle. As examples: adjust your activity, if you are overweight - think about its reduction, try to avoid a sedentary lifestyle, etc. The positive attitude of the patient greatly affects the outcome of treatment.
The first pain clinic appeared in the 60s in the United States and by now there are about 3,000 such clinics. In Russia, this direction is young and has begun to develop actively in the last 5-6 years.
Now a pain clinic has appeared here, in K+31. Our team of doctors (including a neurosurgeon, an anesthesiologist, a psychotherapist and a rehabilitation specialist) follows a comprehensive approach to the problem of pain using modern diagnostic and treatment tools.

We thank Ilya Aleksandrovich Fumin, neurosurgeon K+31, for the detailed information.
We recommend that you go through the initial appointment with a neurosurgeon-algologist, taking with you the available results of tests and other types of diagnostics. Especially if a treatment plan is already planned.
