About Phantom Limb Pain

Identified as pain that appears to be coming from a limb that is no longer attached to your body, phantom limb pain originates from the brain and spinal cord. For some patients, phantom limb pain may get better over time without any treatment, but in other cases, treatment may be needed in order to alleviate pain and discomfort. If you have pain that continues to exist, even months after an amputation, it may be time to seek treatment for phantom limb pain. At Tricity Pain Associates, our team of pain management experts provides a number of treatments for phantom limb pain and the associated symptoms. Discover more about your treatment options for phantom limb pain by contacting our San Antonio, TX facility to schedule an initial consultation with one of our skilled physicians.

Phantom Pain Treatment

Depending on the severity of your condition, your treatment for phantom limb pain may vary from less invasive techniques to more invasive methods. Initial treatments for the condition may include mirror box techniques and acupuncture. Spinal cord stimulation could also be recommended if these procedures do not effectively treat symptoms. This procedure works with the insertion of a small electrode along the spinal cord. This electrode then emits an electrical current to decrease discomfort and pain. Prior to creating your unique treatment plan, our chronic pain management team will ensure you understand all of your available options in order to make the most educated decision.
