Pain management is medical care that relieves short-term (acute) and long-term (chronic) pain. Everyone experiences pain in a different way, so pain management is customized for the individual, their condition, their prognosis, and their abilities.
If you have pain and need relief, pain management can help you. Many patients come to NeuroSpinal Institute of Broward for help with pain after surgery, pain from injuries, and pain due to chronic conditions.
Common reasons to need pain management are:
Knee pain is particularly common and can affect people of any age. Examples include ligament issues — such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears — tendon tears, cartilage injuries, and osteoarthritis.
Back pain may happen due to spinal stenosis, disc herniation, sciatica (back pain that radiates to the leg), spinal arthritis, degenerative disc disease, and other causes.
Neck pain happens for many of the same reasons as back pain, including cervical spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and disc herniation. Whiplash, which involves inflammation in the tissues around the neck, is also quite common.
Several types of headaches can lead to chronic pain, including tension headaches, migraines, cluster headaches, and many others.
Other types of pain, such as whole-body pain syndromes like fibromyalgia, benefit from pain management, too.
NeuroSpinal Institute of Broward takes a unique approach to pain management. The team wants you to get fast pain relief, but they also go beyond that to heal the root cause of your pain and help you prevent it from coming back.
Treatments that can help reduce and relieve pain include:
The team also uses advanced restorative medicine injections to promote healing. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and alternative cellular therapies come from your own blood or bone marrow. The healing cells and substances are combined and magnified, then injected into your painful area.
These restorative injections help you regenerate damaged tissue, fight inflammation, and relieve pain. Even the toughest cases, in which patients are facing surgery, can respond positively to restorative injections.
