Advanced Pain Institute

For the most part, any chest pain that is experienced should be first reported to your primary care physician or cardiologist. However, when the chest pain is not of cardiac origin and there is no infection of the lung, one condition that is treatable is known as cervical angina (neck is causing the chest pain). This condition can manifest itself as thorax chest pain. Also a benign cardiac chest pain may also be treated with spinal cord stimulator/neuromodulation treatment. On rare occasions, early stages of conditions like shingles or post herpetic neuralgia of the chest can be treated in combination with spinal cord stimulator, antidepressants, anti-seizure medications, or specific nerve blocks that target the dorsal root ganglion. Those patients who have had open heart surgery may develop a burning type of chest pain that can be easily treated with external electrical stimulators that are implanted underneath the skin. Chest pain can be from esophageal spasms, reflux, hiatal hernia, just to name a few

If you have any problem of you chest, you should come to see Dr. Minehart for you chest pain.

Hip Pain Q & A

Hip pain can occur due to a variety of reasons, from diseases, injuries and conditions in other areas of the body. These include:
  • Sprains
  • Pinched nerves
  • Arthritis
  • Hip fractures
  • Cancerous growths

Typically, hip pain occurs on the inside of the hip or groin area. When it is from the outside of the hip, the outer buttock region or the upper thigh, these typically stem from issues with ligaments, tendons, muscles or other tissues around the hip joint.

For minor hip pain, the sensation can go away on its own but for those seeking immediate relief there are options like the following:

  • Applying hot or cold compresses
  • Over the counter pain relievers
  • Avoiding strenuous activities and positions
  • Resting

If there is no pain relief, then consult a physician. Contact I. Michael Minehart, M.D. at the Advanced Pain Institute and schedule an appointment.
