Pain Management Q & A

What are common causes of pain?

Chronic pain affects up to 50 million Americans. The pain management team at Remix Medical provides treatment for both acute and chronic pain conditions.

Acute pain comes on suddenly, often because of an injury, and goes away as the injury heals. Chronic pain, considered a disease, refers to pain that lasts for weeks or months and doesn’t seem to go away even after the initial injury has healed.

Some of the most common pain conditions treated at Remix Medical include:

  • Diabetic peripheral neuropathy
  • Chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
  • Migraines and occipital neuralgia
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS)
  • Discogenic back pain, facet syndrome, herniated disc
  • Spinal compression fracture and spinal stenosis.

Remix Medical also provides treatment for pain caused by an acute injury, whether from a car accident, a slip and fall, or a work-related injury.

When should I seek help from a pain management expert?

If your pain is affecting your quality of life or lasting longer than you think is reasonable, it’s time to call the pain experts at Remix Medical. Taking care of pain early may help prevent it from progressing into a more serious condition.

Uncontrolled pain not only causes physical discomfort, but it may also affect your psychological well-being.

What treatments are available for pain management?

Pain management options at Remix Medical vary depending on the cause of your pain. Some common treatments include:

  • Over-the-counter analgesics and anti-inflammatories
  • Pain patches
  • Prescription pain medication
  • Physical therapy and massage therapy
  • Corticosteroid injections or epidurals

Your pain management physician at Remix Medical may recommend the transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator (TENS) unit to aid in pain control. This battery-operated device sends electrical impulses to your nerve endings to help stop the pain sensation and reduce your discomfort.

Due to the psychological effects pain can have on you, your pain management specialist may also recommend you talk to a therapist, who can provide techniques that may help relieve your discomfort and get you back to doing the things you love.
