Florida Pain Relief Centers welcomes Dr. Anjan K. Ghosh to their team of pain management clinicians. Dr. Ghosh is transitioning from his most recent role as sole Physician-In-Charge at the Charlotte Pain Management Center, a multi-disciplinary pain clinic located on Florida's southwest coast where, in addition to delivering care and treatment to patients with a diverse range of chronic and neuropathic conditions, Dr. Ghosh is also responsible for the practice's day-to-day functions.
The history of using electricity as a pain treatment approach dates back hundreds—possibly even thousands—of years. Earlier civilizations that lived by the water are believed to have started the practice of electricity as a therapy with the use of ... a fish.
It was discovered that the Mediterranean torpedo fish, a member of the electric ray family, offered surprising treatment benefits for people suffering from a variety of painful ailments. These cultures realized that, when applied to the afflicted body part, the electricity released from the torpedo fish would help relieve chronic aches and discomfort.
People suffering from chronic pain symptoms typically fall into two categories: musculoskeletal and neuropathic. Musculoskeletal discomfort impacts the body's joints, muscles, tendons, bones, spine, and neck in various combinations.
Often the result of overuse, an injury, or joint degeneration, musculoskeletal aches, while varying in degrees of discomfort, are often considered "pain with a purpose," letting us know we need to prioritize rest and recovery to prevent further physical injury during the healing process.
The expert pain management specialists at Florida Pain Relief Centers are dedicated to providing the latest in innovative, state-of-the-art treatment options to ensure the most effective pain relief plan for each individual patient. And now, we are pleased to provide another new and powerful treatment option: The LinQ™ - SI Joint Fusion System by PainTEQ.
The LinQ™ system is intended for sacroiliac joint fusion for conditions such as Degenerative Sacroiliitis and Sacroiliac Joint Disruptions. The procedure allows for fusion and stabilization of the SI joint in eligible patients where appropriate non-surgical treatment has failed, and may provide immediate relief of pain symptoms.
Osteoporosis is a common disease that causes broken bones, fractures, and spine problems in millions of people every year. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), it is projected that as many as half of all Americans over age 50 will be at risk for broken bones due to Osteoporosis by the year 2020.
But because the disease often develops with no apparent pain or other symptoms, many people are unaware that they even have it until they experience a fracture resulting from the condition.
For this reason, the month of May has been designated as Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month, which focuses on good bone health through prevention, detection and treatment of Osteoporosis. It is a time to educate the public about the causes, risk factors, symptoms of the disease, and the lifestyle changes that can lead to stronger bones in order to help prevent breaks and fractures.
Your cervical spine, or neck, is a complex system of bones, joints, nerves, and muscles that manage a multitude of critical physiological functions.
Designed for strength, mobility, and stability, a healthy neck supports our heads and promotes nerve communication throughout the body. Most importantly, our necks house the arteries that transport blood from the heart to our brains, helping to maintain fully operational neurological and cognitive capabilities.
The good news: We live in an era where modern medicine has given rise to a diverse range of innovative, effective, and non-invasive chronic pain management therapies explicitly designed to manage a multitude of neuropathic conditions.
The not-so-good-news: We also live in an era where modern lifestyles have given rise to an entirely new litany of common chronic and acute pathologies. Our obsession with technology, coupled with our increasingly sedentary daily routines, have promoted a significant surge in several disorders including sitting disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, eyestrain, and a myriad of lower back issues.
Steadily rising to the top of this list of physical impediments stemming from our poor daily habits? Text neck.

We recognize that every patient has a unique care journey, making access to a diverse range of innovative, proven therapies critical. Our physicians understand that not all neuropathic chronic pain patients respond to Spinal Cord Stimulation.
To optimize relief and wellness throughout every phase of the care continuum, FPRC's team of leading neuromodulation experts also offers dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation.
Each year, lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), a common chronic pain condition, impacts over 2 million patients in the U.S.
Commonly diagnosed in patients over the age of 50, symptomatic LSS is often triggered by age-related arthritis causing a narrowing of the lower spinal canal, or lumbar area.
In children and healthy adults, our vertebral disks hold a high water ratio that helps absorb the impact of movement on our bodies. However, as we get older, our vertebrae can lose its ability to retain water. As a result, the space surrounding our vertebral column may begin to constrict and degenerate, allowing the discs between our bones to put direct pressure on our spinal cord and nerve endings.
