What is pain management?
Pain management is a medical specialty area that focuses on relieving, reducing, and managing acute and chronic pain. At Faith Medical Center, the team of compassionate clinical professionals offer patient-focused pain management services and create customized treatment plans to address your specific symptoms as well as the underlying condition causing your pain. Some of the standard pain management treatments include:
• Physical therapy
• Intra-articular joint injections
• Nerve blocks
• Nerve stimulation such as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy
• Hot and cold therapy
While many pain management services are designed to reduce your discomfort, true relief comes from healing the condition causing the pain, whether you have a herniated disc or have muscular weakness or tightness following an injury or surgery. Depending on your symptoms and how your pain is impacting your life, your provider may recommend counseling to manage the emotional and mental effects of pain.
What conditions benefit from pain management?
The team at Faith Medical Center offers comprehensive pain management services for a wide range of conditions including:
• Neck and back pain
• Multiple sclerosis
• Nerve damage
You may also have acute pain following a sports or work-related injury or surgery and may benefit from pain management during your recovery.
When should I talk to a doctor about pain?
Pain is your body’s way of letting you know that something is wrong. If you have pain that lasts for more than a few days and doesn’t subside with rest, over-the-counter medicine, or at-home hot and cold therapy, you should make an appointment with Faith Medical Center to speak to a doctor about your symptoms.
