Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Pain management is a branch of medicine that zeroes in on your acute and chronic pain and provides methods to relieve it. Synergy Health practices pain management for all types, including:

  • Neuropathic pain
  • Postoperative pain
  • Musculoskeletal pain

What is neuropathic pain?

Neuropathic pain is any pain caused by damage to the nerves or an issue with the nervous system. Neuropathic pain is usually acute. Examples include pain from:

  • Fibromyalgia 
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Typical symptoms of neuropathic pain include sensations of:

  • Stabbing or sharpness
  • Tingling, prickling, or “pins and needles”
  • Electric shock

What is postoperative pain?

Postoperative pain is pain that you feel after a surgical procedure. This type of pain is typically acute but can be severe.

What is musculoskeletal pain?

Musculoskeletal pain is any pain that originates in your musculoskeletal system, which includes your:

  • Bones
  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Nerves
  • Muscles 

Patients often complain of musculoskeletal pain such as:

  • Lower back pain
  • Sprains and strains
  • Muscle spasms and cramps
  • Stiff and aching joints

Sciatica pain, which is pain that occurs when you pinch or compress your sciatic nerve, is another frequent musculoskeletal complaint.

How can you treat pain?

To treat your pain, Synergy Health may employ any number of management tools. Most often, he treats pain with:

IV therapy

Synergy Health uses non-opiate IV infusions to treat various types of chronic pain. You may respond well to this if you suffer from conditions such as fibromyalgia, phantom limb pain, spinal cord injury pain, or central pain related to stroke.

Trigger point therapy

Trigger point therapy relieves pain by targeting trigger points, which are points in your skeletal muscle that cause pain when compressed. During trigger therapy, Synergy Health releases compressed trigger points. This therapy is most successful for musculoskeletal pain, including headaches.

Rehabilitation 

Another way to manage pain is through rehabilitation or physical therapy. Through guided exercises, you can decrease pain, improve mobility, and generally improve your quality of life. Physical rehabilitation is especially useful after an injury, stroke, or operation.

If you’ve suffered from pain for a long time, or you’ve just begun experiencing pain, you don’t have to accept it as the new normal.
