Suburban Orthopaedic’s board-certified orthopedic experts know pain is essential for promoting recovery, improving function, and enhancing quality of life. It involves a multidisciplinary approach, including medications, physical therapy, injections, and sometimes surgical interventions tailored to meet each patient’s needs.

Traditional Oral Medications:
Medications targeting inflammation, pain, and numbness are often prescribed when essential interventions prove insufficient. Our approach emphasizes maximizing benefits while minimizing side effects, drug interactions, and patient costs. We stay at the forefront of medical advancements, offering combination medications optimized to achieve these goals.

Topical Medications:
Increasingly preferred by physicians and patients, topical medications applied directly to the affected area offer enhanced efficacy and affordability while minimizing systemic side effects associated with oral medications. Our practice provides and dispenses medicated creams during office visits, offering added convenience to our patients.

For persistent symptoms and dysfunction unresponsive to non-operative treatments, injections into joints, tendons, bursae, or muscles are often recommended. Despite concerns about discomfort, injections are typically well-tolerated and less painful than anticipated. Our injections may include numbing medication, steroids, viscosupplements (lubricants), platelet-rich plasma, stem cells, and other biologically stimulating substances.

Why Do I Need Pain Management for My Orthopedic Injuries?

Orthopedic patients often require pain management for several reasons:

Surgery-Related Pain:
Many orthopedic conditions require surgical intervention, such as joint replacements or fracture repairs. Surgical procedures can cause significant postoperative pain, which needs to be managed effectively to promote healing and rehabilitation.

Inflammatory Conditions:
Orthopedic conditions like arthritis, tendonitis, or bursitis involve inflammation of joints, tendons, or bursae, leading to pain. Pain management helps alleviate discomfort and improves the patient’s quality of life.

Muscle Spasms:
Orthopedic injuries or conditions can lead to muscle spasms, which can be painful and limit mobility. Pain management techniques can help relax muscles and reduce spasms.

Chronic Conditions:
Some orthopedic conditions, such as osteoarthritis or degenerative disc disease, cause chronic pain that persists over time. Pain management strategies are essential for managing long-term discomfort and improving function.

Pain management is crucial in facilitating rehabilitation following orthopedic injuries or surgeries. Controlling pain allows patients to participate more fully in physical therapy and regain strength, flexibility, and mobility.

Psychological well-being:
Chronic pain can have a significant impact on a person’s mental health, leading to anxiety, depression, or sleep disturbances. Effective pain management not only addresses physical discomfort but also promotes psychological well-being.
