About Phantom Limb Pain
Distinguished as pain and discomfort that seems to be emitting from a limb that is no longer connected to your body, phantom limb pain emerges from the brain and spinal cord. In many cases, phantom limb pain can improve over time with no need for any type of treatment; however, in other instances, treatment may be required to help diminish phantom limb pain. If your pain persists even several months following an amputation, it could be time to find treatment for phantom limb pain at Tricity Pain Associates.

Phantom Pain Treatment
Based on the extent of your discomfort and symptoms, your treatment approach for phantom limb pain may vary from noninvasive methods to more invasive techniques. Early forms of treatment for phantom limb pain could consist of mirror box methods and/or acupuncture. Additionally, spinal cord stimulation may be suggested if previous remedies prove to be ineffective. During this approach, a small electrode is inserted along the spinal cord in order to emit electrical currents. These currents are useful in reducing discomfort and pain associated with phantom limb pain. Before creating your personalized treatment approach, our pain management physicians will make sure you effectively understand all of your treatment options and all aftercare instructions.
