Pain Conditions

Find a Specialist Near You

When pain limits your activities, it can cause depression and contribute to a host of other health conditions. Whether your pain is sudden and fleeting — or appears slowly and builds gradually — the pain experts a Houston Methodist are here to alleviate or ease your suffering.

The board-certified pain management specialists at Houston Methodist care for chronic pain caused by both injury and certain medical conditions. They also consult with other specialists to determine the best way to treat your pain. 

Some of the pain conditions we treat include: 


  • Causalgia — is a relatively rare pain syndrome that occurs when your peripheral nerves suffer injuries. These nerves are outside of your brain and spinal cord. 
  • Chronic pain — pain that lasts longer than six months 
  • Complex regional pain syndrome — most often affecting one of the limbs, usually after an injury or trauma 
  • Fibromyalgia — a widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues 
  • Headaches and migraines — occur when you feel pain in any region of your head 
  • Myofascial pain syndrome — is muscle pain, tenderness and spasm that usually involves the muscles on a particular side of the body 
  • Neuropathic pain — (also called neuralgia or nerve pain) is a sharp, stabbing pain or tingling and numbness associated with nerve injury 
  • Phantom limb pain — is pain that occurs in an area near a body part you no longer have 
  • Trigeminal neuralgia — (also called tic douloureux) affects one of the most widely distributed nerves in the head and causes excruciating pain in the face 


We continuously seek new and improved methods to manage pain conditions, including innovative treatments for chronic back pain, headaches and complex regional pain syndrome.  

Pain treatment can include medication, injections like Botox® (botulinum toxin), infusions, ultrasound, nerve blocks and implantable devices to manage both pain and spasticity.
