Understanding Your Pain Management Journey

Pain Management Image

There’s little else that can get your spirit down quite like dealing with chronic pain. Whether your pain comes from an old sports injury, recent injury, surgery or simply wear and tear, your goal is the same: relief from the discomfort of chronic pain. Your physician’s approach to pain relief depends very much on your particular cause, your age and health. Your doctor will discuss strategic options with you to begin your pain management journey to recovery.

Five Common Pain Management Approaches

  1. Medication - considering the opioid crisis in the U.S., doctors are less than enthusiastic to prescribe opioids to their patients, opting rather to prescribe non-opioids like high-­­dose ibuprofen. In fact, according to the CDC there has been a steady 22% decline in opioid prescriptions since 2013.
  2. Interventional Procedures - this technique includes nerve blocks, pain relief injections­—even electric stimulation. It’s a maintenance solution, but not meant to be long term.
  3. Rehabilitative and Occupational Therapy - this is healthy middle ground that starts you participating in a critical role to your recovery. A physical therapist will work with you to help get you where you need to be, and you can even practice techniques and exercises at home. Rehabilitative therapy generally differs from occupational therapy by addressing an event that led to your pain or injury, such as an accident. Occupational therapy helps you find interventions designed to allow you to lead a more independent daily life, such as using a walker to increase mobility after surgery. Your success depends a lot on you—so hard work does pay off.
  4. Complementary Alternative Medicine - many chronic pain sufferers find relief in calming alternative medicine like acupuncture, yoga, as well as meditation. These are termed “complementary” because they are not intended to take the place of traditional techniques, but aid greatly.
  5. Self-management - this is another good one for people who want to know they can have control over the outcome. Diet and low impact exercise can contribute to pain management. For example, swimming is a wonderful exercise for joint pain sufferers or if you’ve had any type of joint replacement surgery, such as hip replacement.
