Common Pathologies

The pathologies associated with chronic pain are diverse, ranging from spinal conditions to craniofacial and pelvic complaints. These conditions have varied origins, can affect different areas of the body and have varying degrees of severity. Regardless of location or degree of severity, all can have a significant impact on the quality of life of those affected, highlighting the need for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.

Chronic Pain

Discomfort that extends beyond the expected recovery time, as opposed to acute pain, can cause psychological problems, disrupt daily life and affect the patient's family.

Lumbar Stenosis

Narrowing of the lumbar canal can compress nerves, causing pain and limited mobility, requiring various treatments.

Vertebral Fractures

Vertebrae, often damaged by osteoporosis, can fracture, causing severe pain and reduced mobility, requiring a variety of treatments.

Craniofacial Pain

Chronic painful disorders affecting the face and skull include facial neuralgias, TMJ problems and certain types of headache.

Trigeminal Neuralgia

The fifth cranial nerve transmits facial sensitivity, and its intense pain is treated with medication, radiofrequency, or neurosurgical techniques.

Neuropathic Pain

This pain arises from damage to the nervous system, having unique characteristics and resisting common analgesics.

Cervical Pain

Discomfort in the neck may spread to the shoulders, head and arms, usually due to spinal and muscular problems.

Thoracic Pain

The spine between the neck and ribs may cause posterior or thoracic pain from degeneration, inflammation or fractures.

Lumbar Pain & Sciatica

Discomfort in the lower back may extend to the lower extremities, requiring specialized diagnosis and treatment.

Sacroiliac Pain

The sacro-iliac junction can cause pain in the buttocks and thighs if it becomes inflamed, degenerated or injured, which can be diagnosed with imaging techniques.

Pelvic and Perineal Pain

The pelvic region, home to various organs, can harbor chronic pain that is difficult to diagnose and treat.

Herniated Disc

Deterioration of the intervertebral discs can cause a protrusion that inflames the nerve roots, resulting in radiating pain and potential neurological problems.
