Understanding Your Symptoms

Different Types of Pain

Pain is a symptom associated with several types of illnesses, injuries, and conditions. Medication may alleviate the pain, but it doesn’t treat the underlying cause. At Center for Pain Management, we focus on diagnosing and treating the causes of pain and helping our patients regain strength and mobility. 

If you need help for moderate to severe pain, please fill out the contact form below or call us at (317) 706-7246.

Two Common Types of Pain

Pain generally falls into two categories: neuropathic (originating in the nervous system) or nociceptive (originating due to actual injury or damage). Neuropathic symptoms may include:

  • A pins-and-needles sensation
  • Numbness in hands or feet
  • Shooting/radiating pain
  • Widespread pain

Nociceptive pain commonly occurs due to injuries and conditions such as: 

  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • Infections
  • Falls/impact injuries

Without proper treatment, injuries that cause temporary nociceptive pain can lead to chronic pain.

Chronic Pain Conditions

At Center for Pain Management, we treat neuropathic conditions such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), fibromyalgia, and diabetic neuropathy. We also treat acute injuries and degenerative conditions, including arthritis, herniated discs, and pain resulting from cartilage loss.
