Pain Management Springfield MO

Why do I still have pain? Is it going to get better, or worse? Is there anything that will help my pain management? When living with chronic pain, it’s easy to get discouraged. Good news: There are proven strategies and technologies for dealing with pain.

At the Mercy Pain Management - E. Seminole in Springfield, MO, we know how to help. Since 1997, our experienced team of medical specialists has successfully treated patients by helping them learn how pain changes their brain, body and life. In addition to our pain treatment programs below, we also treat gastrointestinal conditions as well as provide health psychology for medical conditions (such as chronic pain and fibromyalgia) and mental performance assessments for ADHD.

Our pain management care team in Springfield offers a short, outpatient procedure designed to treat lumbar spinal stenosis called MILD (minimally invasive lumbar decompression). MILD is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, requiring no overnight hospital stay. This safe and effective procedure can increase standing time and walking distance, leading to a better quality of life. MILD also has a safety profile similar to epidural steroid injections but with lasting results, and patients typically return to normal activity within 24 hours with no restrictions. MILD is covered nationwide by Medicare.

Multidisciplinary care is considered the best practice for chronic pain management. Our team of health psychologists and nurses is specially trained to help manage health challenges. Our comprehensive approach is designed to reduce suffering, facilitate coping, and improve outcomes. We use up-to-date neuroscience clinical research to apply effective methods that help you regain control of your life.

At Mercy Clinic Pain Management in Springfield, we provide state-of-the-art, safe and science-based treatments that support physical treatments. Research has shown medical problems and functional limitation outcomes are improved using psychological approaches to suffering and pain. Some medical problems are conducive to psychological treatment. Patients report reduced pain as a result of treatment for depression and PTSD. 

We begin with an evaluation to determine the best treatment plan. Following this initial analysis, we will recommend a treatment plan customized to meet your needs. 

 

Evaluations:

 

  • Behavioral medicine evaluation – helps your health care team understand the important factors and coping difficulties that influence suffering and impact quality of life.
  • Pre-surgical psychological evaluation – helps your health care team estimate surgical prognosis based upon scientific information. Psychosocial factors can lead to changes in your body’s healing, immune functions, and pain. Pre-surgical treatment can greatly improve surgical prognosis.

 

Treatments:

 

  • Alpha-Stimulation
  • Biofeedback
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for pain, mood-related factors and insomnia
  • Neurofeedback using brain mapping and other advanced methods of assessment
  • Psychotherapy
  • Relaxation response therapy
  • Stress management & relaxation response therapy 
  • Supportive treatment for cancer
  • Trauma treatment includes eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) 

 

Goals:

 

  • To deal with the cause of the pain
