Pain Management FAQ

What distinguishes osteopathic treatments in pain management from other approaches?
Osteopathic treatments in pain management at this practice involve a holistic approach that considers the entire body. Unlike other methods that may focus solely on the area of pain, osteopathic treatments aim to identify and address the root causes of pain by examining the body's structure and function. Techniques may include gentle manipulation and stretching to improve alignment, blood flow, and overall well-being. This method provides a comprehensive and interconnected approach to pain relief, working in harmony with the body's natural healing processes.

How are topical solutions applied in pain management, and what types of pain are they suitable for?
Topical solutions in pain management at this practice are applied directly to the skin over the area experiencing pain. They are typically in the form of creams, gels, or patches and may contain medications like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or local anesthetics. Topical solutions can be particularly effective for localized pain, such as joint, muscle, or nerve pain. They provide targeted relief without affecting the entire body, making them a suitable option for patients seeking a non-invasive and localized approach to pain control.

What is the difference between non-steroidal and steroid injections in pain management, and when might one be preferred over the other?
Non-steroidal and steroid injections are both used in pain management at Rejuvenation Wellness Center, but they have distinct properties and applications:

  • Non-steroidal injections: These contain non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and are often used for pain related to inflammation. They can provide relief without the hormonal effects of steroids and may be preferred for acute or short-term pain conditions.
  • Steroid injections: Steroid injections contain corticosteroids, which have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. They are often used for chronic or severe pain conditions, such as arthritis or spinal pain, where long-lasting relief is needed. The choice between non-steroidal and steroid injections depends on the nature and severity of the pain, patient preferences, and the overall treatment plan designed by the healthcare provider. It's a decision made in collaboration with the patient, considering the specific needs and goals of the pain management program.
