Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Pain management is a medical area that uses medication, procedures, and various therapies to regulate pain. Pain is a complex sensation that affects everyone differently, even people with the same diagnosis.

Your body uses pain to let you know something is wrong so that you can take action. You expect to feel pain when you have an acute injury like a sprain or fracture, and once your injury heals, the pain goes away.

However, some people continue to feel pain after their injury heals or have pain from an unknown cause that lasts weeks, months, or even years.

No matter the cause or type of pain, easing it is necessary for health and healing.

When do I need pain management?

You need pain management if you suffer from severe pain brought on by an acute injury or surgery or if your pain is chronic (lasting more than three months).

The common conditions that benefit from pain management include:

  • Back, knee, shoulder, and hip 
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Work injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)

The Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County team includes experts in pain medicine and interventional pain management. They complete thorough evaluations to understand the source of your pain and how it affects your life.

The experts might also request an MRI to assess how severe your injury or disease is. The Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County is a state-of-the-art practice with an on-site open MRI machine.

What are some of the pain management treatments?

The Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County team offers many treatments to help you gain control of your pain. These pain management treatments include:

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Bracing, splinting, and casting
  • Rehabilitation medicine using physical and/or occupational therapy
  • Joint injections
  • Spine injections
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

If conservative care fails to ease your pain, the team could recommend surgery. The Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County offers general surgery, orthopedic surgery, and spine surgery.

Pain affects your physical, emotional, and social well-being. When left uncontrolled, pain can delay healing and lead to mental health problems like depression and anxiety.
