What is pain management?
Pain management is a medical specialty focused on reducing or eliminating pain. The physicians at North Texas Orthopaedic & Spine provide highly customized pain management plans designed to both reduce or eliminate your pain and resolve the condition causing it, for lasting relief.
Pain management doesn’t just rely on medication. While medication can reduce or mask your pain, it doesn’t do anything to heal the condition causing it, which doesn’t provide a long-term solution for your pain. While medication may be part of your treatment plan, the doctors at North Texas Orthopaedic & Spine also offer treatments to heal the condition causing your pain.
What are some of the available pain management methods?
Chronic pain is typically complex, so your doctor will use a multidisciplinary approach to pain management. After a comprehensive exam and consultation, your doctor creates a personalized pain management plan to address your pain and the issue causing it. Some of the common pain management techniques include:
- Pain medication
- Physical therapy
- Hot and cold therapies
- Chiropractic care
- Trigger point injections
- Joint injections
- Nerve stimulation
- Minimally invasive surgery
Your doctor’s goal is to work with you to identify the root cause of your pain and design a treatment plan that allows you to regain a healthy, active, and fulfilling life.
When should I talk to a doctor about pain?
Everyone has an occasional ache or minor injury. However, if you have pain that lasts for more than a few days that doesn’t resolve with at-home treatments including rest, ice, and over-the-counter pain relievers, you should make an appointment to talk to a doctor. Pain is your body’s way of letting you know that something is wrong, and if your body can’t heal on its own, you need medical attention.
Am I a good candidate for pain management?
If you live with chronic pain that interferes with your ability to lead a healthy and active life, you should schedule a consultation to talk to the physicians at Quantum Pain and Sports Medicine about your condition and discover if pain management is right for you. The doctors provide detailed exams and consultations to identify the best way to alleviate your pain and restore your healthy, active life.
