Many people suffer from long-term pain that lasts more than three months. In many cases, pain persists for years or is lifelong because the underlying condition is incurable. You might benefit from pain management if you have any of the following conditions:
Chronic pain is the leading cause of long-term disability, affecting about 100 million people across the United States.
Primary Medical Physicians, LLC offers pain management treatments, including:
Medications help to reduce pain and inflammation but require careful monitoring. Medication management involves reviewing all your medicines regularly to ensure you only use what you need, that you take it correctly, and that you don’t experience adverse effects. Your provider also evaluates the drug’s effectiveness and makes changes to optimize pain control.
Steroid medications have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. You can take them orally, but they may cause side effects, especially with long-term use. Injections deliver the drug directly to the painful area, a more effective and less risky approach. Steroids are especially effective for treating joint pain caused by soft tissue damage or arthritis.
Marijuana (cannabis) is a restricted substance, but Florida operates a prescription program for people with certain incurable or treatment-resistant disorders. The Primary Medical Physicians, LLC team might prescribe medical marijuana if your chronic pain meets the criteria and other treatments haven’t helped.
Boosting your vitamin and mineral levels can help reduce chronic pain. For example, B vitamins are vital to nerve function, which plays a critical role in pain. If you have severe pain, you might require medicated IV therapy with a drug like ketorolac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID).
Other important aspects of pain management include physical and occupational therapy and psychological counseling. You could also benefit from lifestyle changes like improving your diet and losing excess weight.
