Pain Management Q & A

What are the Most Common Conditions That Cause Pain?

Your body’s musculoskeletal system is incredibly complex, and incredibly hardworking. Every movement relies on numerous systems that all need to work in concert to allow you to move freely and without pain.

Unfortunately, a disruption in one area can have a widespread effect on your entire body, which typically includes pain. Sometimes the pain occurs in seemingly unrelated areas.

At South Texas Spinal Clinic, the most common reasons that drive patients to seek help with their pain are:

  • Arthritis
  • Injury (car accident, sports injury, trauma, etc.)
  • Herniated discs
  • Repetitive use injuries
  • Torn or ruptured tendons
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Myofascial pain syndrome

This list represents only a small sample of the underlying causes of pain, which can strike anywhere, including your:

  • Back
  • Neck
  • Knees
  • Elbows
  • Wrists
  • Feet and ankles

What is Pain Management?

The goal of pain management is to relieve your pain without resorting to invasive surgical procedures. When it comes to orthopedic problems, the doctors at South Texas Spinal Clinic have a combined experience and knowledge base that enables them to help you find a solution that relieves your pain and aligns with your goals.

To do this, South Texas Spinal Clinic has dedicated physiatrists on staff who are experts in diagnosing and treating almost all musculoskeletal pain.

What Treatments Help Manage Pain?

The physiatrists at South Texas Spinal Clinic have several tools in their pain management toolbox, including:

  • Physical therapy
  • Manual medicine
  • Muscle and joint injections
  • Spinal epidural steroid injections
  • Facet and fluoroscopic spine injections
  • Electrodiagnostic testing
  • Nerve blocks

Typically, the doctors start out conservatively and become more aggressive if your pain persists. Rest assured, they will work with you until a satisfactory solution is found.

In fact, since no two patients are alike, the physiatrists tailor a plan that’s designed to treat your specific injury, all while keeping your goals top of mind. In other words, they don’t simply stop at making you comfortable. If you’re an athlete, they work with you to get you back into the game as quickly as possible, while alleviating your pain and preventing your condition from worsening.

There’s no reason to live with chronic pain. Call South Texas Spinal Clinic to learn how pain management can help you. Or, use the online scheduler to book an appointment.
