Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Pain management at Integrity Spine & Orthopedics uses safe, FDA-approved pain-relieving methods to offer relief from acute and chronic (ongoing) pain. Acute pain usually lasts less than six months, while chronic pain can linger for six months or longer.

The discomfort can feel like:

  • Stiffness
  • Weakness
  • Dull, aching discomfort
  • Stabbing, shooting, or radiating pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Burning

The pain can limit your range of motion and make it hard for you to get around.

Your pain can be mild or severe and life-altering. Finding the root cause of the discomfort allows us to effectively treat your condition and give you a pain-free life.

Why might I need pain management?

There are many reasons to take advantage of pain management solutions. Common causes of acute or ongoing pain include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis (weakening of the bones)
  • Scoliosis (unnatural curvature of the spine)
  • Sports injuries
  • Older age
  • Carrying excess weight
  • Physically demanding jobs

More than one medical problem can contribute to the need for pain management by our specialists.

Which pain management plan is best for me?

To determine if pain management is something you need, we discuss your medical history, lifestyle habits, symptoms, medications, and more.

Our team checks your vital signs, completes a physical exam, and might order nerve testing and blood tests. X-rays, an ultrasound, an MRI, a CT scan, or another imaging procedure might be needed to reach a final diagnosis.

What are my pain management choices?

Your pain management treatment depends on what’s causing your ongoing pain, how severe it is, and your preferences and lifestyle. Standard pain management methods include:

  • Topical pain relievers
  • Over-the-counter or prescription medicines
  • Nerve block injections
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Physical therapy
  • Thermal ablation
  • Regular exercise
  • Nutrition or dietary supplement changes
  • Counseling
  • Spinal cord stimulation
  • Minimally invasive spine surgery

Our team often recommends more than one pain-reducing measure to help you enjoy your life to its fullest and prevent complications. We personalize each pain management plan to give you long-lasting relief with minimal risks.
