Based on the same strain as chicken pox and herpes, shingles has a strong impact and can strike at any age. Combatting shingles can be tough because even once the condition clears up, the pain often remains. It can lead to other serious complications and interfere with people’s daily activities. Called postherpetic neuralgia, the pain can be fierce and debilitating. Medications are rarely very effective. What does work is interventional pain care.
Interventional pain specialists at Anesthesia Pain Care Consultants have had success resolving the lingering and crippling pain caused by shingles for many very relieved patients.
Shingles continues to be a real issue and there’s currently no cure – almost 1 out of 3 people in America will develop shingles during their lifetime. Nearly 1 million Americans experience the condition each year.
APCC physicians can use various advanced interventional pain management techniques to treat the condition and help get patients back on their way to feeling better and healthier.
