What is pain management?
Pain management is a branch of health care focused on addressing and relieving pain using non-surgical methods.
The team at Restorative Physical Medicine has combined experience and a knowledge base enabling them to pinpoint the source of your discomfort and develop a treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
What are some common conditions that cause pain?
Your body’s musculoskeletal system features a complex network of bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Although these structures are incredibly durable and hard-working, they’re also susceptible to injury.
Every movement that you make relies on numerous body parts working together. Unfortunately, an injury to one area can have widespread effects on your entire body.
For example, if you sprain your ankle, it might cause you to change your gait. Over time, a change in your gait might cause back pain.
At Restorative Physical Medicine, the team regularly works with patients who are experiencing pain from:
- Automobile accidents
- Joint problems
The team also provides pain management for athletes and other active individuals.
What type of pain management is right for me?
To determine the best type of pain management for your individual situation, schedule an appointment with the team Restorative Physical Medicine.
Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your symptoms, your provider may recommend:
- Physical therapy
- Manual medicine
- Joint injections
- Muscle injections
- Prescription medication
For more serious pain problems, the team also offers nerve blocks and electrodiagnostic testing.
Pain management treatment typically starts out conservatively and becomes more aggressive over time. No two patients are alike, so your provider tailors treatment specifically to your needs.
The ultimate goal of pain management is relief from pain, but if you want to return to work or play sports, your provider can develop a training plan that relieves inflammation and encourages circulation, while building strength and general mobility.
