What Are The Best Treatments For Chronic Pain?

Managing chronic pain on your own may seem impossible, largely because nothing you do ever seems to be enough. Over-the-counter medications provide short-term relief, but your pain always returns. You’re afraid to rely on narcotics due to their highly-addictive nature, and the thought of heading to the hospital for special surgery is terrifying. Knowing when it’s time to ask for help is the first step to removing chronic pain from your life. Contacting West Orange pain doctors at Pain Treatment Specialists begins your journey to a pain-free life. Some of the best treatments for chronic pain include:

  • Cervical Facet Block Injection: A cervical facet block injection provides almost instant relief from chronic pain. Your West Orange pain doctor uses a small amount of local anesthetic and steroid medicine to pinpoint the facet joints in your cervical spine. A cervical facet block injection works almost immediately to numb pain and provide chronic pain relief.
  • Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection: If you suffer from chronic pain in your shoulders, arms, or neck, a cervical epidural steroid injection is a highly-effective pain management treatment. Your West Orange pain doctor administers this injection in the epidural space in your spine and delivers a steroid-based drug, like cortisone. This reduces swelling and inflammation in the epidural space in your spine, which relieves pain in your shoulders, arms, or neck.

Your West Orange pain doctor will work with you to tailor a pain management plan based on your specific chronic pain concerns.

Why Should I Avoid Surgery?

When you’re stuck in the cycle of chronic pain, any life ring thrown your way seems like a good option. Healing crystals, sage smudges, and energy readings? Sure. Surgery and pain pills? If it fixes the way you’re feeling, you’re game. Before you take these massive leaps, make sure you know the risks associated with surgery.

Not only does surgery disrupt your daily life, it will leave you out of work for quite some time. You will need to make financial plans not only your after-surgery care, but also for the lack of income. There is also no guarantee that just one surgery will solve your chronic pain issues, or even that it will make any marked difference at all. Many patients suffering from chronic pain still report pain even after going through the painful process of surgery.

Before you entertain the idea of surgery, discuss your chronic pain with West Orange pain doctors at Pain Treatment Specialists. Let the next pair of words that make you smile be “pain free!”
