Supporting Local Artists: Cannon Brand

May 20, 2020

We are in full support of any way to help lift up our locals in the community! Cannon Brand is an extremely talented singer-songwriter, living right here in The Woodlands, who we would love to spotlight this week. Tune into his Facebook Live Stream on Cannon Brand Music Thursday, May 21st at 7 PM, to catch Cannon playing some fan favorites!

Cannon was born and raised in Willis, Texas, just north of Houston. At age 7, Cannon began learning the guitar, and from then on, his love for music only grew. Now an experienced songwriter and performer, Cannon Brand has had the opportunity to headline many shows across Texas and open for legendary Texas musicians such as Cory Morrow, Roger Creager, Randall King, Deryl Dodd, and more. 

Songwriting is at the forefront of Cannon’s work, having penned an abundance of songs and worked with respected songwriters Kyle Hutton, Drew Womack, James Lann, and others. Cannon has now released 2 singles and 1 EP, entitled “My Kind of Place” and is in the process of recording a new album slated for late 2020.

Cannon has a handful of singles and music videos that are perfect for listening to during a relaxing evening on the patio or a long drive with the windows down! When the world is back in action, you can catch Cannon regularly playing at local venues like Dosey Doe – The Big Barn or Pacific Yardhouse in Conroe. In the meantime, click here to listen or watch Cannon perform live. Share with your friends!

Learn more about some of the common causes of abdominal pain that we treat at our office in The Woodlands.
The pelvic region of the body is located between the abdomen and the thighs (below the belly button and above the legs.) The pelvis protects internal organs including the bladder, intestines, and reproductive organs and supports the hip joints.

Chronic abdominal pain is noticeable but not crippling pain that lasts for more than a few days. It may also appear on and off over the course of several months. This type of persistent, nagging abdominal pain may be caused by a condition that needs to be treated, but is not an emergency and won’t go away on its own.

Reproductive Conditions
Chronic pelvic pain in women may be caused by:

  • Endometriosis - when uterine tissue grows in other parts of the body, including the pelvis, causing pain and scarring
  • Fibroid tumors - non-cancerous growths in or on the uterus

In men, it may be caused by prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate).

In men or women, chronic pelvic pain may be due to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), interstitial cystitis (a common bladder problem) or another condition of the digestive tract.

Pudendal Neuralgia
The pudendal nerve is the main nerve in the pelvis that supplies sensation to the lower buttocks, anal region, and genital region of both men and women. Pudendal neuralgia is a condition that occurs when this nerve is damaged or irritated. Symptoms of pudendal neuralgia include pelvic pain that feels like a burning, shooting, or prickling sensation. Pain may develop suddenly or gradually and may be constant but worse while sitting down. Other symptoms may include numbness in the pelvic region, pain during sex, and feeling a swelling sensation in your buttocks and genital regions.
Tailbone Pain
The tailbone, also known as the coccyx, is the small, triangular bone at the bottom of the spine. Tailbone pain is usually caused by trauma to the area resulting from

  • a fall
  • a blow to the area
  • repetitive friction in the area – from bicycling, for example
  • prolonged sitting on a hard surface
  • joint degeneration
  • injury to a woman’s tailbone during childbirth

Symptoms of tailbone injury include severe, localized pain and tenderness and possibly bruising.

What is Radiofrequency Ablation?
After identifying which spinal nerves are causing a patient’s back pain, the doctor performs radiofrequency ablation to deactivate the part of those nerves that are signaling pain. Guided with x-ray imagery, the doctor guides a tiny probe into the spinal area until it is positioned next to the targeted nerve. Electrical pulses are passed through the probe, heating it up and destroying the part of the nerve that was sending pain signals to the brain. The targeted nerves still function, they’re just unable to transmit pain sensations.

There is a numbing agent given to the local area being treated. The patient remains awake during the procedure that usually takes less than an hour. Patients are able to go home the same day.

What is COOLIEF* Radiofrequency Ablation?
Like other radiofrequency ablation procedures, COOLIEF* disrupts pain signals. Unlike other radiofrequency ablation procedures, COOLIEF* uses water-cooled technology. Water is circulated through the probe at the same time the nerves are being heated. This creates a larger treatment area that leads to better, long-term pain relief and ensures that pain-transmitting nerves being targeted are not overheated, which protects surrounding muscle tissues from side effects like inflammation. COOLIEF* is simply a better version of a proven pain-relieving procedure.
