What conditions require Pain Management?
Everyone experiences pain to some degree. It’s a universal signal that our bodies need attention. While pain is a natural response to injury or illness, it can be debilitating if it’s not addressed appropriately. Pain management is a common medical necessity. Pain shouldn’t interfere with your ability to enjoy your life. It shouldn’t interrupt your sleep or keep you from work or your hobbies. Some conditions that may require pain management are:
- Fibromyalgia, neuropathy, and other nerve disorders
- Arthritis of the spine and joints
- Inflammatory diseases or long-standing injuries that accumulate scar tissue
We strive to treat these conditions with comprehensive care that addresses every facet of the pain, offering pain relief and restoring quality of life.
How Do I Know if I Need Pain Management?
At Suburban Orthopaedics, we’ll help you determine if you need pain management keeping these and other factors into consideration:
- If the pain has persisted past a normal healing period, usually three months or more.
- If the pain is severe, debilitating, or negatively affects your ability to perform daily tasks with ease, and impacts your wellbeing.
- If you have a diagnosed medical condition known to cause pain like inflammatory or neurologic diseases that cause chronic pain like arthritis or fibromyalgia and more.
- If you’ve noticed, the pain has reduced your quality of life and is impacting your mental health.
Types of Pain Management:
