Widespread Pain

Unlike the immediate pain that results from an injury, the cause of widespread pain can be difficult to determine. People who have this type of pain may report that the pain moves to different parts of the body over time, and that the intensity of the pain is inconsistent.

The most common causes of widespread pain are complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), fibromyalgia, and nerve damage in the spine. To get an accurate diagnosis, people with widespread pain should see a pain management professional.

Center for Pain Management in Indianapolis uses specialized diagnostic procedures to determine which nerves are causing pain. We then develop a plan for controlling pain at its source and helping our patients regain strength and mobility. Call us to get help for acute or chronic pain: (317) 706-7246.

Treatments for Widespread Pain

We may use a combination of procedures, such as: 

  • Infusion therapy 
  • Steroid injections
  • Nerve blocks
  • Radiofrequency rhizotomy (cauterizing the nerve)
  • Spinal cord stimulator implants

You can read more about these procedures under “treatments.” 

What to Expect

Treatment can reduce nerve-related pain to manageable levels, but it may not completely eliminate pain. Our goal is to provide our patients with the greatest possible level of comfort.
