How to Solve Your Pain Problems

Safe treatments

Step 1: Appointment 

The first step to healing your pain is to contact your local pain management specialist. From there they can get an understanding of your pain, come to a diagnosis, and present you with the best treatment options specifically for you.

Step 2: Treatments

After you hear about what treatments they can offer you, you will want to do some research on the potential treatments. Here is a list of the common treatments that we do in our clinic. 

Bursa Injections – The doctor injects a combination of a corticosteroid and a local anesthetic near the affected joint to reduce inflammation and pain in the area. Bursa injections only take a few minutes to administer.

Orthobiologic Treatment – The goal of Orthobiologic treatment is to promote the natural healing and repair processes within the body, ultimately leading to improved function and reduced pain. The doctor will first obtain a patient’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or stem cells and redistribute it into the damaged bones, cartilage, and tendons. This will aid in the healing of a variety of conditions, including osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and ligament injuries. 

Trigger Point Injections – During this treatment, the pain management specialist injects a combination of a corticosteroid and a local anesthetic into trigger points, which are areas of muscle that are tight due to overuse or injury, which can cause pain and discomfort. The treatment will help to reduce inflammation and pain in the area and takes only a few minutes to complete.

Nerve Blocks – Your health provider injects a combination of a corticosteroid and a local anesthetic into a nerve or group of nerves to block pain signals from reaching the brain. This can help to provide temporary or long-lasting pain relief for a variety of chronic pain. The medication helps to numb the area and reduce inflammation, which can provide pain relief for days, weeks, or even months.

Step 3: Procedure

The most important step on your journey to a pain-free life is to move forward with the recommended procedure. This can be a one-time visit or multiple scheduled appointments depending on the treatment. Afterward, you’ll be feeling better than ever.
