About Phantom Limb Pain
Phantom limb pain is a condition that causes men and women to feel pain sensations from a limb that is no longer there. If a patient has experienced a serious injury, cancer, disease, or another complex medical issue, they might need to amputate a limb to prevent further damage to the body. Sometimes when this happens, even though the limb is no longer there, it can create painful sensations in the location of the excision.

"I am so grateful for Tricity Pain Management they actually listen and care. I had a bad experience with another Pain Management years ago with a very extensive shoulder surgery and so you could say it was so good to have a a PA like James Houston to take care of me. Daniel his assistant is super kind as well. I wished my insurance company Atena cared like TriCity. This has been a very tough and trying season of my life. If you have a issue share it and they will listen. Thank you for caring during it."- A.L. / Google / Aug 18, 2022

Phantom Limb Pain Treatment
Phantom limb pain can feel like a stabbing pain, throbbing, achy, cramping, or burning sensation in a previously amputated region. These symptoms may happen right after the surgery, but they can also occur a few months after. Doctors are unsure what causes these painful sensations in an excised area, but the brain does not continue to receive nerve responses. When this happens, the brain has to adapt and rewire, which can cause a variety of mixed signals because the brain no longer receives sensory messages from this particular part of the body. To help you on your healthcare journey, we offer advanced treatment options, such as spinal cord stimulation, acupuncture, and mirror box therapy.
