Pain due to an injury can completely change a person’s life. But it doesn’t have to. Thanks to pain management specialists and knowledge of interventional and non-interventional methods, patients that sustain injuries have an effective treatment solution where there once was very few options. The three most common injuries treated using pain management are:
Neck and Back
Neck and back injuries happen—at some point in life—to everyone. In cases where a patient isn’t getting relief from traditional treatment and isn’t a candidate for surgery, pain management can provide sustained relief. Non-invasive and minimally invasive treatment can be used to treat a multitude of injuries that stem from work related accidents, falls, car accidents or even some degenerative conditions.
Once a patient’s pain has been controlled, they’re able to return to a normal, functional life.
A knee injury can cause the early onset of arthritis. Patients who develop severe arthritis, but don’t meet the requirements to be a candidate for a total knee replacement (TKR), can be treated using pain management and also regenerative medicine, such as PRP. In some cases, pain is controlled and surgery isn’t necessary. In others, pain is controlled until the patient becomes a candidate for a TKR.
In a similar scenario as knee pain, hip pain due to arthritis can be controlled using pain management. Non-invasive and minimally invasively treatments can help decrease or eliminate pain and improve function. These treatments can be indefinite, or until a definitive solution can be undertaken.
