Millions of Americans face chronic headaches and pain that can range from a minor inconvenience to debilitating. Coast Spine and Sports Medicine offers tailored treatment solutions to deliver significant pain relief. We welcome men and women in Los Angeles and Orange County, California.
What Is Chronic Pain?
The term chronic pain refers to pain that continues for more than 12 weeks in spite of medication or treatment. While most people return to normal life after recovering from an injury or operation, sometimes the pain lingers. In some cases, chronic pain is the result of an underlying condition that causes degenerative changes or damage to bone, ligament, muscle, or nerve tissue.
How Much Does it Cost to Treat Chronic Pain in Los Angeles, CA?
The cost to treat chronic pain and headaches depends on many factors, including the underlying cause of your pain and how well you respond to more conservative treatment options. Coast Spine and Sports Medicine will develop a tailored treatment plan to ease your pain and review the cost of your treatment during your first appointment. We accept many forms of health insurance as well as financing through CareCredit®.
What Causes Chronic Pain and Headaches?
While the causes of many chronic headaches aren’t well understood, this type of chronic pain can come in many forms. Chronic headaches can be very short or last for hours and include:
- Chronic tension headaches
- Chronic cluster headaches
- Chronic migraines
Factors such as anxiety, depression, obesity, snoring, caffeine addiction, sleep disturbances, overuse of headache medication, or other chronic pain conditions are often associated with the development of frequent headaches. In many cases, the cause of frequent headaches simply isn’t known.
What Headache Treatment Options Do You Offer?
Most chronic headaches can be solved efficiently with non-surgical treatments. Developing a treatment plan may begin with an MRI scan, CT scan, diagnostic tests, as well as medication. The right treatment option will depend on the type of headache and cause. Migraine headache treatment may include Botox®, for example, while cluster headache treatment may include greater occipital nerve injections. Tension headache treatment is more likely to include medication therapy.
