About Abdominal Pain
Everyone experiences abdominal pain from time to time, but this does not mean that the debilitating symptom should go untreated or unchecked. Abdominal pain typically causes discomfort in the belly region between your ribs and pelvic area. Often, it is a side effect that results from digestive issues, such as:
- Indigestion, constipation, or diarrhea
- Inflammation or infection in the organs, such as gastroenteritis or stomach flu, peptic ulcer disease, or chronic acid reflux
- A more serious condition, like bowel obstruction, diverticulitis, or Crohn's disease
The root of your issue may not even be related to the colon — abdominal pain can also arise from complications with other organs. Abdominal pain often feels different from patient to patient, and its location can vary, depending on what underlying problem is causing your discomfort.
To relieve the abdominal discomfort that's getting in the way of you living your best life, it's crucial to seek care as soon as possible. Our skilled, board-certified team of doctors at Pain Zero will work with you to determine the cause of your abdominal pain and treat it accordingly.

What to Expect from Abdominal Pain
When diagnosing the cause of your abdominal pain, our team will perform a physical evaluation to assess any areas of swelling or tenderness, ask you questions about the type of pain and symptoms you're experiencing and where it's located, and run a series of diagnostic tests. Depending on the results of your physical examination and responses to our questions, our doctors may order certain diagnostics, such as MRI scans, x-rays, and ultrasounds, which can help detect instances of inflammation.
A proper diagnosis is important so that you receive the most effective treatment. The treatment you receive for your abdominal pain will depend on the underlying issue that has led to its development. Our experienced pain doctors may start with over-the-counter pain relievers or nutritional counseling. Our team may suggest a modified diet that consists of:
- Drinking plenty of water
- Eating certain foods full of fiber
- Avoiding certain foods
- Using antacids
Pain Zero specialists may also recommend other interventional pain therapies to reduce your abdominal pain, such as biofeedback or nerve blocks.
