What is Shingles Pain?
Shingles pain is any pain that is caused by the shingles infection. Shingles occurs when the chicken pox virus reactivates in the body. Therefore, you can only get shingles if you have previously had chicken pox. Shingles causes rashes to develop on the skin, which are often itchy and even painful. If the pain caused by these rashes become severe, patients may choose to pursue professional care. To help patients relieve the symptoms of shingles pain, Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic offers a number of treatment solutions.
How is Shingles Pain Treated?
At Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic, your shingles pain treatment will depend on the location and severity of your symptoms. In some cases, self-care techniques and medications can produce significant improvements in your symptoms. If these techniques do not produce sufficient relief, we may recommend a more aggressive form of treatment, such as injections and blocks. These treatments will block nerve signals from the affected areas, producing an immediate and noticeable reduction in symptoms that contributes to an improved quality of life.
What Can I Expect from Shingles Pain Treatment?
The results from your shingles pain treatment will vary depending on the severity of your condition. In most cases, patients are able to achieve sufficient relief from their shingles pain treatment while the shingles infection heals. Shingles rarely returns a second time, so additional treatments aren’t necessary. During your initial visit with one of our doctors, we will determine the best treatment technique for your situation and inform you of the results you can expect based on that treatment.
