What is Chronic Pain?

We all (after the age of 20 or so) experience the occasional aches and pains that come along with aging. Also known as acute pains, these pains are important for warning us of an injury or possible future injury that needs to be addressed. These pain signals travel up the spinal cord and into the brain, triggering the feeling of pain. Chronic pain, on the other hand, is something different. Chronic Pain is a pain that continues to be transmitted to the brain even after an injury heals. It can last weeks, years, or a lifetime.

Curbside Medtalk w/ Dwight Peebles

Welcome to Curbside Medtalk The goal here is providing viewers with high-level medical topics and discussions with medical experts on a casual level.

Our 5/5/5 and 9/9/9 Pain Plan Pledges

At Comprehensive Spine and Pain, we offer two ongoing pledges to our valued patients from Dr. VK Puppala, who is double board certified in pain management as well as anesthesiology. With his extensive experience and over a decade of expertise in treating virtually every kind of pain, he has created two interconnected Pain Plan Pledges: First, we aim for at least 50% relief of 50% of the pain within 5 months of diagnosing and confirming a patient's source of pain. Second, with continuing consultations, treatments, and compassionate care, we aim for at least 90% relief of 90% pain within 9 months. Both of these Pain Plan Pledges are accomplished through focusing on a correct diagnosis as the top priority [...]


I was awake during my procedure and am now pain free. If I ever need help with back pain again I will return to Dr. Puppala.

Gary, October 2016

I came in with A LOT of pain – around a 9 – and Dr. Puppala suggested we go ahead with an epidural. Within minutes my pain was down to 0, which had not happened in a very, very long time! Thank you Dr. Puppala and staff for taking great care of me!

Gail, April 2017

I, Theresa R, was in so much pain, but after the procedure my pain isn’t there. I was a little nervous, but I didn’t feel any pain when Dr. Vin was doing the procedure. Thanks for everything I felt so comfortable and the pleasant feelings with the staff. I recommend everyone to come here. Thanks again.
