Chronic pain is any type of aching, stiffness, or general discomfort that lasts for three months or longer. Almost everyone experiences pain on occasion, but if your symptoms persist, fail to respond to conservative treatments, or interfere with your quality of life, it’s important to seek professional medical help.
Pain management takes an interdisciplinary approach to diagnose, treat, and prevent chronic pain. It uses a combination of healthy lifestyle changes, prescription medication, and medical interventions to ease swelling and inflammation, improving your mobility and quality of life.
Pain management services can compliment your body’s natural healing process. By committing to treatment, you can return to your favorite activities quickly and safely.
The team at Sebring Medical Walk-In Clinic offers a variety of pain management services, including:
Physical therapy uses specific strength and range-of-motion exercises to restore your body’s natural range of motion. It provides a safe and effective way to manage chronic pain while improving your mobility. Physical therapy requires regular appointments. To achieve the best possible results, it’s important to attend each session.
If you’re a physically active individual who is experiencing pain, consider exercise guidance. Exercise guidance is a type of pain management that suggests modifications to your regular workout. These modifications take the pressure off of swollen joints or tissues, allowing your body to heal and recuperate.
Topical pain relief uses prescription-strength ointments, rubs, and lotions to ease swelling, stiffness, and general discomfort. These medications are often used to manage chronic conditions like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, as well as muscle aches.
Some pain doesn’t respond to topical ointments or over-the-counter medication. If your pain persists or continues to worsen, the team at Sebring Medical Walk-In Clinic might recommend prescription medication. Whenever possible, they select non-narcotic options to ensure positive outcomes and your safety.
If you have tight muscles, or muscle knots, consider trigger point injections. Trigger point injections use a combination of prescription anesthetics and steroids to relieve pain caused by health problems like fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome.
To determine if you can benefit from pain management, the team at Sebring Medical Walk-In Clinic conducts a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks about your symptoms and lifestyle. They might also order X-rays or an MRI to determine if an underlying health problem is contributing to your symptoms.
After gathering the necessary information, the team can develop a treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
