FAQs on Prescription Pain Cream for Failed Back Syndrome
Failed back syndrome is also referred to FBSS. This is when back surgery has failed and back pain becomes chronic in nature. Often the pain is described as being sharp and stabbing, or prickly. It may also be described as aching and dull. Some of the factors contributing to this condition include disc herniation that is recurring; compromised joint mobility; and fibrosis or scar tissue. This is often the result of added pressure on nerves in the spinal column, after spinal surgery.
Why is it debilitating?
Failed Back Syndrome that goes untreated can result in severe debilitation. It is extremely important that individuals seek medical attention in the case of any chronic back pain. There are numerous nerves located within and around the spine that are crucial to mobility as well as brain function. Many times, especially if individuals do not consult a physician, this condition can lead to extreme emotional disturbances as well. These include, but are not limited to, insomnia, severe depression, and anxiety disorders.
How do topical pain creams help Failed Back Syndrome?
There are several treatments for Failed Back Syndrome that are beneficial; however, surgery is almost never one of them. One of the most common is topical creams to treat inflammation and pain. These topical creams alleviate the symptoms of failed back syndrome while the patient undergoes other treatments to correct the failure. Medication that is applied topically does not allow harsh chemicals to enter the digestive tract. Many of the harmful side effects associated with internal medications are therefore eliminated.
What are the types of pain cream available for Failed Back Syndrome?
- Topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory creams are applied to the affected area to reduce pain, tenderness, and inflammation. These creams are generally used for injuries and pain that is associated with sprains and/or torn ligaments. Topical creams are extremely effective without compromising the digestive system.
- Non-steroidal creams contain NSAIDs such as ibuprofen. Ibuprofen acts as a pain reliever, reduces inflammation, and thins the blood. This is an important consideration for hypertension and heart patients.
- Topical creams with Ketamine are sometimes prescribed, if the discomfort is severe enough. Ketamine blocks that pain providing patients with temporary relief. These creams only contain low doses of Ketamine; those that contain high doses are not widely accepted. Since the medication is applied topically it never enters the stomach, bypassing many annoying side effects such as upset stomach and nausea.
- There are creams available that contain Prilocaine and Lidocaine. These medicinal properties act as a numbing agent upon the painful area. They are very effective in providing relief to Failed Back Syndrome Patients.
