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.

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.
