Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Pain management is a medical specialty that aims to prevent, evaluate, diagnose, and treat pain. Pain can be acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term), affecting your ability to perform daily activities and impacting your overall quality of life.

Many factors can contribute to pain, including injury, surgery, illness, and underlying medical conditions. The primary goal of pain management is to provide relief from pain and improve your quality of life by addressing both the physical and emotional aspects of pain.

Which conditions can pain management treat?

Pain management is a versatile approach to care that relieves many types of pain. From sports injuries and nerve damage to degenerative conditions, pain management techniques can effectively treat acute and chronic pain in many areas of the body, including the back, neck, joints, and muscles.

Some of the most common conditions pain management strategies can treat include:

  • Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Cancer pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Neuropathy
  • Post-surgery pain
  • Sciatica
  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Tendonitis
  • Work-related injuries
  • Back, neck, hip, and knee pain
  • Shoulder pain (swimmer’s shoulder, rotator cuff tear, etc.)
  • Bursitis

After a comprehensive evaluation, physical exam, where applicable review of lab work, and imaging scans, your pain management specialist can create the appropriate treatment plan.

What are the warning signs I need for pain management?

Consider professional pain management if you experience pain that affects your daily activities or quality of life. Warning signs you need pain management treatments include:

  • Pain that lasts for more than 2-3 weeks
  • Difficulty concentrating due to pain
  • Poor sleep quality from persistent pain
  • Trouble walking, running, or performing routine activities
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Pain that limits your mobility, flexibility, or range of motion

If you’ve tried home remedies, like over-the-counter pain relievers, ice and heat, or compression, without success, Better Pain Management Strategies can develop a personalized care plan that relieves your discomfort.

Is it possible to provide pain management without medication?

With a holistic approach to care, Better Pain Management Strategies offers many treatments to relieve pain without medication or surgery, such as:

  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Intra-articular knee injections (hyaluronic acid)
  • Weight loss 
  • Physical therapy
  • Massage therapy

Taking proactive steps to relieve pain now can help you avoid surgery and reliance on medication.
