Pain Medicine Q & A

How can pain medicine help me?

Pain medicine refers to the medical approaches used to prevent and treat painful health conditions. A comprehensive pain management plan can:

  • Identify the best course of treatment for your pain
  • Help you avoid surgery using conservative approaches
  • Manage stubborn pain conditions resistant to traditional therapies
  • Offer long-term medication management for chronic pain conditions
  • Provide rehabilitation after surgery

At the Pain Medicine Group, the skilled team offers a variety of pain medicine techniques to address the full range of chronic pain problems.

How are chronic pain conditions diagnosed?

To provide the most effective pain management solutions, your doctor performs a complete medical or surgical examination to identify the source of your pain. This exam might include:

  • A psychological evaluation
  • Laboratory testing, MRIs, or X-rays
  • EMG and nerve conduction studies
  • A complete musculoskeletal evaluation
  • Neuropsychological exams for head injuries or cognitive disorders

The team has extensive experience identifying the root cause of pain conditions and prescribing optimal pain treatments.

What types of pain medicine can help me?

As pioneers in this specialized area of medicine, Pain Medicine Group's board-certified doctors offer the most advanced pain medicine techniques available. Your pain medicine plan will vary depending upon your unique situation but may include:

Physical therapy

Physical therapy helps relieve pain by improving your strength and range of motion. Your doctor may recommend a series of physical therapy sessions depending on the severity of your symptoms.

TENS machine

A transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation (TENS) machine uses low-voltage electricity to reduce muscular pain. This pain management therapy is safe, effective, and noninvasive.

Traction

A traction device uses a system of pulleys to gently stretch your spinal column to alleviate neck pain caused by nerve irritation.

PRP and stem cell therapy

Approaches like platelet-rich plasma and stem cell therapy can help regenerate tissue that had degenerated or sustained injury.

Injections

Injections such as facet joint injections, epidural steroid injections, or medial branch blocks, depending on the source of your pain and your symptoms, can help some symptoms.

Conventional pain medication

Because of the addictive nature of certain pain medications like opioids, this approach is generally a last resort. However, pain medication can help some patients recovering from surgery or who have not found relief via other means.
