About Phantom Limb Pain
Phantom limb pain is a sensation that seems to be originating from a part of the body that is no longer present. While phantom limb pain was previously regarded as a psychological issue, we now know that the sensations associated with the condition stem from the brain and spinal cord. For some individuals, phantom limb pain may resolve on its own without treatment. However, a number of Round Rock and South Austin, TX patients do require specialized care to effectively manage the symptoms and ease discomfort. If you or a loved one experiences pain from a limb that has been amputated, we invite you to visit our team of specialists at Tricity Pain Associates. Phantom limb pain may persist for weeks or months following amputation. Let us help you overcome these symptoms and enjoy greater comfort and quality of life.

"I have nothing but great things to say about Dr.Kim ! This is my first experience with a pain management doctor and I highly recommend Dr.Kim .Nerve and chronic pain can be debilitating and that's exactly what I was experiencing 6 months ago when I first came to Dr.Kim.Wasnt sure what to expect but after Dr.Kim quickly diagnosed me with stenosis and a bone spur causing the pain and inflammation he wasted no time in treating me with a series of injections, pain medications and physical therapy. While I am not quite back to 100% I am in a MUCH BETTER place than I was 6 months ago.Dr.Kim is truly sincere about your needs when it comes to injuries and pain and he is a GREAT listener!

Phantom Pain Treatment
Treatment for phantom limb pain may vary according to the severity of your symptoms and overall condition. Our pain management team may initially recommend medication and therapeutic solutions, including mirror box techniques and acupuncture. If these methods do not provide the desired results, then spinal cord stimulation may be the next step. This treatment helps ease phantom limb pain and symptoms via an electrical current delivered by a small electrode that is inserted into the spinal cord. During your consultation, our experts will thoroughly discuss your treatment options to help you understand your condition and make an informed decision about the direction of your care.
