Who Is The Post Surgery Back Pain Treatment For?

Our Reset Injections are effective in patients with failed back surgery disease. This condition occurs if the pain that was present before the surgery is felt again. Additionally, some patients describe a new pain in a different area after the surgery or some new burning pain in the scar and legs. Reset Injections may be right for you if the same lower back pain from before your operation is present after the surgery, you have a new burning pain in your back or legs, you have back pain in a different area that didn’t exist pre-operation, and or a new feeling of weakness and numbness in your legs. Patients should consider Reset Injections after they have been examined by a spine surgeon and no other treatment options are available or offered.

 

About Our Specialized Post Surgery Back Pain Treatment

Reset Injections are a multi-step process that requires precision and accuracy. The most vital step involves identifying the hyperactive nerve endings responsible for your pain. This process takes patience, and attention to detail. Patients are awake during the whole procedure due to the minimally invasive process and the key to the treatment; patients guiding us towards their hyperactive nerve endings.

What Happens After The Procedure?

After the procedure, you may experience soreness at the injection site. Additionally, some patients experience pain relief immediately; for others, it can take up to two weeks for the effects of the treatment to set in.

  • What are the side effects of the Reset Treatment?

    So far we have not encountered any side effects. Like with any injection, there is always a risk of infection from the needle or allergic reaction to the medications.

  • How do Reset Injections work?

    At RESET Pain Center, we have discovered that hyperactive pain receptors cause pain. These hyperactive centers will vary per patient and by condition. Locating these hyperactive pain receptors is at the heart of our novel treatment. Once found, a series of injections will reset the activity of those pain receptors back to normal. As a result, our novel treatment decreases the pain almost instantaneously, with patients feeling significant relief by the time they leave RESET Pain Center.

  • Does the Reset Treatment hurt?

    The amount of discomfort from the Reset treatment is minimal. At the end of the treatment, most patients ask us, “that is it?”. It is much less than what is felt during nerve blocks.

  • What should I expect from my Reset Treatment?

    It is essential to understand that, realistically, the pain you are currently experiencing will not go away but will be significantly reduced, and your activity level will be much improved.

  • How long does it take for the Reset Treatment to improve my pain?

    97% of patients feel better and are experiencing much less pain before they leave the office.

  • How many Reset Treatments do I need for maximal benefit?

    In my experience, I found out that 2 Reset treatments 2 weeks apart allow for locating and treatment of the hyperactive receptors involved in the creation and maintenance of your pain. As a result, you will experience better and longer-lasting relief.

  • Do I have to take any special precautions after the Reset Treatment?

    No. You can go about your life as usual.

  • Can I be put to sleep for the Reset procedure?

    We need your input and feedback during the Reset procedure. Putting you to sleep will be counterproductive to the success of the procedure.

    No. the Reset treatment is focused on one body part at a time.

  • How long do the Reset treatment last?

    The improvement can last many months. Relief is always accompanied by the improvement of activities.

  • Do I have to rest after the Reset treatement?

    No .After the Reset treatment,you can go about your daily activities.

  • Where is the Reset injection done?

    Irritated pain receptor areas cause the pain. Therefore, the injection will be in the area of the hyperactive receptors in order to reset them to a normal level of activity.

    The Reset treatment is not in the spine or bone.

  • What is injected in the Reset treatment?

    It is an injection of a unique proprietary blend of medications designed for resetting the activities of the nerves involved in the transmission of pain back to normal levels. The potency of the medicine varies depending on the condition and pain levels being treated.

    NO STEROIDS OR NARCOTICS are used in the Reset treatment.

  • Do you accept insurance?

    Unfortunately, there is no insurance billing code for our treatments at this stage. Due to these circumstances, we cannot legally bill your insurance for this procedure.

About The Treatment

Reset Injections are a multi-step process that requires precision and accuracy. The most vital step involves identifying the hyperactive nerve endings responsible for your pain. This process takes patience, grace, and attention to detail. Patients are awake during the whole procedure due to the minimally invasive process and the key to the treatment; patients guiding us towards their hyperactive nerve endings.

We measure the activity of the hyperactive nerve endings on a scale from 1 to 10. If the nerve endings are more hyperactive and near a ten, we use more and stronger medication. The medications injected vary with the severity of the pain and the disease causing the pain. However, we never use steroids or opioids in our injections.

Additionally, since we prioritize the comfort of our patients, we use the smallest needles available.

After the Reset Injections, patients recover for 10 to 20 minutes before they are discharged from the center.

Other Helpful Information About Post Surgery Back Pain

Failed Back Surgery Pain or Failed Back Surgery Syndrome is pain, discomfort, and sometimes neuropathy (tingling, burning sensations from nerve damage) after surgery was performed on your spine. If an individual has Failed Back Surgery Pain the pain can be from the same condition they had previously rendering the surgery ineffective or a new pain can appear. Pain can be felt in the back, neck, legs, or arms. Additionally Failed Back Surgery Pain can be the result of a spinal fusion complication: in some causes the spinal fusion never forms. The spinal fusion is supposed to occur gradually overtime post-operation and in some people it does not. Failed Back Surgery Syndrome happens 20% to 40% of the time and will more likely occur in people with more than one back surgery. Up to 36% of people who undergo herniated disc surgery experience pain again in two years. Smokers, individuals suffering from obesity, people with fibromyalgia, and depressed persons are at a higher risk of having Failed Back Surgery Syndrome.

What Causes Failed Back Surgery Syndrome?

The causes of Failed Back Surgery Syndrome do not stop at pre-operation risk factors. There are things that can happen during surgery or post-operation that can cause FBSS.

Misdiagnosis

In some instances, a doctor may misdiagnose the cause of your pain, and the surgery performed was intended to treat a condition you do not have. For example, if you are diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease and surgery is performed to treat it when your pain comes from another issue, your pain will still be present post-operation.

Scar Tissue

Beginning one-month post-operation, you may have scar tissue growth near a nerve that irritates the nerve causing new pain and potentially Sciatica.

Pseudoarthrosis

This issue occurs with spinal fusions. Spinal fusions may be performed for scoliosis, disc issues, spinal stenosis. During a spinal fusion, a bone graft is implemented with rods, screws, or wires, with the end goal to be a fusion of vertebrae. In some cases, the fusion never occurs, leaving the individual in pain. The risk of the fusion not occurring is higher in smokers, overweight people, people who have diabetes, and malnutrition. The number of fusions performed, the graft material, placement of the graft, and type of fusion can have an influence on spinal fusions as well.

Inadequate decompression

Back surgery can fail due to the surgeon not creating enough space to relieve the compressed nerve the surgery was intended to provide relief for. When an inadequate amount of space is made, this can lead to continued pain.

Hardware Malfunctions

FBSS pain can occur when the hardware used for surgery in your back is placed and then proceeds to cause pain from the original placement or falling out of place.

New Degeneration

If surgery was performed to alleviate degeneration, it could have been a success, but you had multiple discs degenerating, or new discs are beginning to deteriorate, causing you new pain. There are many different causes of Failed Back Surgery Syndrome, and the more surgeries performed to correct an issue with back pain, the lower the success rate becomes, so seeking other forms of treatment may be a good option.
