Pain Management Q & A
What Causes Pain?
If you suffer from acute or chronic pain, there’s a long list of injuries and diseases that could be responsible for your condition. Some of these include:
- Spinal stenosis
- Compressed nerves (pinched nerves)
- Degenerative disc disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Bone fractures
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tendon injuries
Certain conditions like fractures and sports injuries result in sudden, acute pain that typically clears up once the underlying condition receives effective treatment. Chronic pain is often more complex and can continue for months or years, even when there is no past injury or disease.
At The Woodlands Sports Medicine Centre, the goal of pain management is to identify the factors contributing to your pain and develop the most effective treatment plan for relieving your symptoms and restoring your quality of life.
How is Pain Diagnosed?
A proper diagnosis is essential to effectively treat your pain. The Woodlands Sports Medicine Centre conducts in-depth evaluations to determine the severity of your pain and identify any factors contributing to your condition.
In addition to a physical exam and discussion of your medical history, your doctor may perform imaging tests to get a detailed view of the inside of your body.
The practice offers a number of convenient in-office imaging tests like X-rays, CT scans and MRIs to provide you with a prompt, accurate diagnosis.
What are the Available Pain Management Treatments?
Once you have a diagnosis, you and your doctor work together to develop an individualized pain management plan. Your individualized treatment plan addresses the specific issues causing your pain.
In most cases, your doctor combines a number of different conservative treatments like:
- Heat therapy
- Activity modifications
- RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation)
- Physical therapy
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
- Joint injections
- Lumbar epidural injections
- Proliferation injections
- Neural prolotherapy
- Immobilization (cast or brace)
