During your initial consultation, Dr. Jha will give you the opportunity to talk about all of your pain problems, including how it started, what it feels like, what treatments you may have had and what may have worked before – even if it was temporary.
There are many non-surgical options at ARK Spine Care & Pain Management, depending on where you experience the pain. Procedures will be individualized for the problem that exists. All of your treatment options will be explained in detail.
With the goal being to help keep your pain at a tolerable level, increase your independence, improve your well-being and take control over your pain, Dr. Jha works with you and your primary care physician or specialist to determine the most appropriate treatment.

10. Some days my acute pain is much worse. What can I do?
Keep a daily log of when your pain seems to be worse and bring your Pain Log to your next appointment with Dr. Jha. Tell Dr. Jha the times that you are in more pain than usual (such as at the end of a tiring day or as a result of certain activities). If you notice that certain activities contribute to your pain, or that you feel worse at certain times of the day, ask Dr.Jha about treatment options and/or medication that can be taken prior to the activity (or time of day) to help prevent the pain from occurring. Always be sure to follow Dr. Jha’s instructions.
