Abdominal Pain Treatments

The abdomen is an anatomical area bordered on either side of the ribs and diaphragm by the lower margin, the pelvic bone (pubic ramus) below, and the flanks above. Although pain may derive from the tissues of the abdominal wall surrounding the abdominal cavity (such as skin and muscles), the term abdominal pain is widely used to describe discomfort arising from organs within the abdominal cavity. The stomach, small intestine, colon, liver, gallbladder, spleen, and pancreas are among the organs of the abdomen.

Common Abdominal Pain Causes

At Atlas Pain Specialists, we are aware that experiencing abdominal pain can be both incapacitating and unpleasant. Many different underlying disorders can cause it, and the discomfort it causes can range from slight to severe.

Causes of abdominal pain may include:

  • Gastrointestinal issues (indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease)
  • Reproductive health issues in women (menstrual cramps, endometriosis, uterine fibroids)
  • Kidney stones, urinary tract infections, and sexually transmitted infections.
  • More serious underlying conditions (appendicitis, gallstones, pancreatitis, kidney stones, urinary tract infections, and sexually transmitted infections.)

It's important to seek medical attention if you are experiencing abdominal pain, as it can be a symptom of a serious condition that requires prompt treatment. At Atlas Pain Management, our team of medical professionals is here to help you find the cause of your abdominal pain and provide the appropriate treatment to help you find relief.

Common Abdominal Pain Symptoms

At Atlas Pain Specialists, we are dedicated to helping our patients find relief from abdominal pain.  To effectively treat abdominal pain, it is essential first to understand the symptoms that may be associated with it.

Some common symptoms of abdominal pain include:

  • Aching or discomfort in the abdomen
  • Bloating or a feeling of fullness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Fever or chills
  • Needing to urinate urgently or having difficulty when trying to.

It is important to note that the specific symptoms of abdominal pain can vary depending on the underlying cause.  For example, abdominal pain caused by gastrointestinal issues may be accompanied by diarrhea or constipation.  In contrast, abdominal pain caused by a kidney stone may be accompanied by blood in the urine.

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention.  Don't hesitate to contact us for a consultation.  We are here to help.

Common Treatments For Abdominal Pain

It's essential to determine the underlying cause of abdominal discomfort before implementing an effective treatment plan.  Our medical staff is knowledgeable in a range of methods to assist in the diagnosis of stomach pain, such as:

  • Physical examination: During a physical exam, your doctor will ask about your symptoms and medical history, and they will also perform a physical exam of your abdomen to look for any signs of swelling, tenderness, or other abnormalities.
  • Laboratory tests: Laboratory tests, such as blood tests or urine tests, can help to identify any underlying conditions that may be causing abdominal pain.
  • Imaging tests: Imaging tests, such as an X-ray, CT scan, or ultrasound, can provide detailed images of the inside of your abdomen and help to identify any abnormalities or underlying conditions.

Once the cause of your abdominal pain has been identified, our team at Atlas Pain Management will work with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Some of them include the following:

  • Gastrointestinal issues: Treatment for abdominal pain caused by gastrointestinal issues may include medications to control symptoms such as diarrhea or constipation and lifestyle changes such as modifying your diet or reducing stress.  Surgery may sometimes be necessary to treat underlying conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease.
  • Reproductive health issues in women: Treatment for abdominal pain caused by reproductive health issues may include medications to control pain, hormone therapy, or in some cases, surgery to remove uterine fibroids or treat endometriosis.
  • Kidney stones: Treatment for abdominal pain caused by kidney stones may include medications to control pain and help the stone pass more efficiently and techniques to help break up or remove the stone.  In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the stone.
  • Appendicitis: Treatment for abdominal pain caused by appendicitis typically involves surgery to remove the appendix.

At-Home Treatment Tips For Your Abdominal Pain

 Here are a few tips that may help you find relief from abdominal pain:

  • Stay hydrated: Dehydration can worsen abdominal pain, so drinking plenty of fluids is important.  Water is usually the best choice, but you can also try electrolyte-rich beverages if you are experiencing diarrhea or vomiting.
  • Eat a balanced diet: A healthy diet can help to reduce abdominal pain and other digestive issues.  Try to include a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in your diet, and avoid trigger foods that may contribute to abdominal pain, such as spicy or fatty foods.
  • Manage stress: Stress can worsen abdominal pain, so finding ways to relax and manage stress levels is important.  Techniques such as meditation, yoga, or deep breathing may be helpful.
  • Get plenty of rest: Adequate rest can help to reduce abdominal pain and improve your overall health.  Try to get at least 7-9 hours of sleep per night and take breaks throughout the day if you feel overwhelmed or stressed.
  • Seek medical attention: If you are experiencing severe or persistent abdominal pain, it is essential to seek medical attention.  Our team at Atlas Pain Specialists is here to help you find the cause of your abdominal pain and provide the appropriate treatment to help you find relief.

Remember, the best way to find relief from abdominal pain is to address the underlying cause.  If you are experiencing abdominal pain and are unsure of the reason, don't hesitate to contact us for a consultation.

Chronic Pain
Chronic pain is a common problem that can cause significant physical and emotional distress. When you have chronic pain, you may experience pain every day, even after the original injury or illness has healed. This can be difficult to cope with, both physically and emotionally. Approximately 25% of people with chronic pain will develop chronic pain syndrome (CPS), which is characterized by symptoms beyond pain, like depression and anxiety. This can make it difficult to live your life normally.

Neck Pain
The neck (or cervical spine) is a coordinated network of nerves, bones, joints, and muscles. It has the important job of providing protection and mobility to the brain, but often it can become painful. There are a number of conditions that cause pain in the neck. Inflammation along nerve pathways in the spine can be responsible for shoulder, head, arm, and/or hand pain. Additionally, inflammation of the spinal cord may cause pain in the legs and other areas of the body. In a few days or weeks, neck pain usually goes away, but pain that lasts for months may signify an underlying medical cause that needs to be addressed. In such cases, early intervention may be necessary for the best results.
