Why do I need pain management?

Long-lasting (chronic) pain can be debilitating, interfering with your work responsibilities and social life. Reducing your pain eases your stress, helps your sleep, and protects your mental health. Your body also heals faster when you have less pain.

Pain management from the skilled team at L&D Medical Center takes a comprehensive approach. They offer a spectrum of treatments that ease your suffering and improve your quality of life.

What health conditions need pain management?

You may need pain management following an injury or surgery or when you have a health condition, such as:

  • Neck pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Migraines and other headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Cancer pain

No matter what causes your pain, the team at L&D Medical Center can help you find relief.

What treatments are included in pain management?

Pain management is always personalized to include the therapies that meet your unique needs. Treatments fall into several broad categories:

Lifestyle approaches

L&D Medical Center offers nutritional counseling and helps you create a simple exercise plan. A healthy diet supports your nerves and immune system, while losing weight reduces inflammation and takes stress off your joints.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy is an important part of pain management. The activities you perform boost circulation, reduce inflammation, improve joint mobility, strengthen your muscles, promote healing, and ease chronic pain.

Medical treatments

This could include any number of pain medications, corticosteroid injections, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, or topical creams that counteract pain.

Interventional treatments

Interventional pain management uses image-guided injections and procedures targeting your nerves and joints, such as:

  • Epidural corticosteroid injections (to reduce spinal nerve inflammation)
  • Joint injections (to reduce joint inflammation or increase protective fluids)
  • Nerve blocks (to temporarily stop pain signals from reaching your brain)
  • Radiofrequency ablation (blocks nerves for a longer time frame)
  • Spinal cord stimulation (to block pain signals going through your spine)
  • Intrathecal pain pump (to release potent pain medications into spinal fluids)

Joint injections can target any joint in your body, from the facet joints in your spine to your elbows, knees, ankles, hands, wrists, and shoulders.

All interventional treatments are safe and precise, as your provider uses real-time X-ray imaging to view the targeted area and guide the needle. 

If you need pain management, don’t wait to call L&D Medical Center or book an appointment online today.
