3 Ways Our Pain Management Services Help Reduce Discomfort During Healing
Living with pain isn’t just uncomfortable—it hinders your overall quality of life. If you’re recovering from an injury, surgery, or nerve damage, proper pain management makes all the difference in the healing process. Instead of resorting to prescription medications or surgery, there are minimally invasive ways to help you control your pain and promote a quick recovery from your injury. Read on to learn all about our approach to pain management and why it’s helped so many people on their healing journey.
What Is Interventional Pain Management?
At Impact Medical Group of Tampa, we take an Interventional Pain Management approach to treating our patients. Our pain management services focus on reducing discomfort and improving our patients’ overall well-being. Our treatment options are minimally invasive and are used by patients who may have tried other therapies that have not been successful. From massage therapy to chiropractic care, physical therapy to injections and nerve root blocks, we provide a full suite of pain management techniques that have improved the lives of countless patients.
1. Reducing Inflammation
One of the most effective ways to alleviate pain is by reducing inflammation. Our pain management specialists incorporate anti-inflammatory treatments to help reduce swelling, redness, and pain. Treatments such as icing, massage, and anti-inflammatory medication can provide relief to patients with symptoms such as arthritis, back pain, and tendonitis.
2. Interrupting Nerve Signals and Decreasing Pain Transmission
Interruption of the nervous system’s pain signals is another way our pain management services reduce discomfort during healing. For instance, nerve root blocks and epidural injections are effective in reducing pain caused by sciatica, herniated discs, and spinal stenosis. These treatments block the pain signals sent from the nerve to the brain, and as a result, patients experience pain relief.
3. Addressing Psychological Pain Factors
Pain is not only physical—it always comes with a psychological component. Our pain management specialists identify psychological pain factors such as anxiety, depression, and stress that may affect a patient’s pain tolerance. Addressing these factors can lead to emotional healing and can reduce physical pain. Our caring, experienced therapists help patients struggling with these psychological factors, helping them overcome obstacles as they navigate their healing journey.
