Discover Safe and Effective Treatment Options for Pain
Many options are available when it comes to getting relief from aches and pains. Your doctor can help you decide which one is right for you. Treatments such as physical therapy, medications, injections, or even surgery may be recommended depending on your symptoms and condition.
Physical therapy effectively reduces pain and improves joint function without relying on medication or surgery. Physical therapists use different techniques to target the underlying cause of your discomfort and restore strength and flexibility in affected areas. This can include:
- Massage therapy
- Electrical stimulation
- Other therapies
Over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen can temporarily relieve pain. However, discussing other options with your doctor is important if your discomfort persists or worsens with these medications. Your doctor may prescribe a stronger prescription, such as steroids or opioids, to help manage your symptoms and reduce inflammation or swelling.
Corticosteroid injections can provide fast relief from inflammation and pain. These shots are injected directly into the affected area and typically provide comfort for several weeks before needing to be repeated. Your physician may also recommend hyaluronic acid injections if you have chronic joint pain due to osteoarthritis.
In some cases, surgery may be necessary to correct structural problems causing severe pain and disability. This could include replacing or repairing damaged joints, ligaments, or tendons. Surgery can be very effective in relieving pain. However, it’s important to remember that there is always a risk for complications, and recovery time may be lengthy.
Robotic-assisted surgery is a relatively new technology used increasingly in orthopedic procedures. Orthopedic surgeons use robotic arms to perform complex tasks with greater precision than traditional methods, which can result in shorter recovery times. This type of surgery is particularly effective for total knee and hip replacements and spine surgeries.
