Cancer pain is any pain directly related to cancer. Cancer can become particularly painful if it grows into new areas. Cancer pain can also become overwhelming if you develop a tumor that pressures nerves, bones, or internal organs.
Treatments, including chemotherapy, radiation, and cancer surgery, help you fight the cancer. But they can also cause unpleasant side effects, including severe pain. Alliance Spine Associates, LLC treats all kinds of cancer pain so that you can feel better and enjoy a better quality of life.
Cancer causes unique pain that can be difficult to manage using standard pain-relief measures. Even powerful oral narcotics might not be as effective against cancer pain. Because of this, most people with cancer need cancer pain management at some point.
The pain management specialists at Alliance Spine Associates, LLC understand the unique intricacies of cancer pain. They use the most advanced techniques to effectively control the cause of your pain at its source.
Every person with cancer has a different need for cancer pain management. The Alliance Spine Associates, LLC team discusses your pain with you to better understand what you’re dealing with. They’ll ask about your pain intensity, when and how often it occurs, and other information to find the best strategy to ease the pain.
To manage your cancer pain, you might need injections, like epidural steroid injections or nerve blocks. Or you could need an advanced pain management procedure like spinal cord stimulation or neuroablation.
Many people with cancer respond to treatments like implantable intrathecal pain pumps, which deliver strong pain relievers whenever you need them directly to where your pain originates.
This delivery method is much more effective for severe cancer pain than oral medication because it takes effect right away. And this delivery method uses much smaller doses of medication, which minimizes unpleasant medication side effects.
The Alliance Spine Associates, LLC pain management specialists coordinate your care with your oncology team to ensure that you receive the maximum pain relief as you cope with and fight cancer.
