Reasons for Procedure
This pain management technique is often only used if noninvasive pain management has failed or has negative side effects. An intrathecal pain pump can be used to manage long term pain problems caused by:
- Failed back or neck surgery syndrome
- Compression fractures
- Phantom limb pain
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy —nervous system disease
- Causalgia —burning pain due to peripheral nerve injury
- Arachnoiditis—inflammation of the spinal nerves
- Chronic pancreatitis —inflammation of the pancreas
Many people have a significant reduction in pain and are better able to function in daily life after having an intrathecal pain pump insertion.
