Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Pain management is a field of medicine that addresses chronic pain and the conditions that cause it.

Chronic pain describes any pain that lasts for six months or longer. This type of pain can develop anywhere in your body and is common in the back, neck, shoulders, and knees due to injuries from falls, sports, or auto accidents.

Chronic pain can also result from conditions like:

  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Degenerative spine conditions
  • Neuropathy (nerve damage)

HealthyU Clinics offer pain management solutions for a range of chronic pain conditions. The practitioners take an integrative, holistic approach to relieving your pain and improving your overall wellness.

When should I consider pain-management services?

You should schedule a pain-management evaluation at HealthyU Clinics if you have pain that you can’t manage with over-the-counter medications, rest, and other home remedies. You also need an evaluation if your pain worsens even with treatment.

The available pain-management services can address all types of persistent pain, including:

  • Aching
  • Burning
  • Tingling
  • Stabbing

The medical providers provide a complete physical exam, lab work, and diagnostic imaging tests to identify the root cause of your pain and its severity.

Based on your exam and test results, the pain-management specialists create a care plan to provide long-lasting pain relief. They also offer supportive resources to protect your mobility and overall body function.

What is involved in pain management?

The pain management services at HealthyU Clinics focus on holistic therapies that help you stay physically active and pain-free.

The providers may initially recommend lifestyle and diet changes to reduce inflammation that contributes to pain. They can also suggest over-the-counter or prescription anti-inflammatories and pain relievers.

When these strategies aren’t working well, the providers may recommend injection therapy or other interventional procedures. You may also benefit from physical therapy and home exercises after these treatments to strengthen your muscles and prevent additional inflammation.

The goals of individualized treatment plans are to manage your chronic pain long-term and continually improve your function and quality of life. If you take medications as part of your treatment, the practitioners provide medication-management services to prevent misuse and complications resulting from conflicts with other medications.
