What is pain management?
Pain management can help you learn how to live with chronic pain conditions like arthritis. There are many causes of incurable, long-term pain, and arthritis causes more suffering than any other.
The TruWell Health team works together to create a comprehensive pain management plan that meets your precise needs.
They use the most up-to-date medical knowledge and advanced technologies to deliver pain management treatments that can significantly improve your quality of life.
How does pain management work?
The pain management techniques employed at TruWell Health use a holistic philosophy. That means they consider every factor that could be making your pain worse, including:
- Your diet
- The environment you live in
- Stress levels
- How much you exercise
- Your weight
- Other health problems you might have
- The medication you’re taking
Tackling the cause of your pain rather than just masking it with medication is the starting point for your pain management plan. There is a place for medication in treating pain, but taking painkillers long-term doesn’t offer the benefits of a comprehensive pain management plan.
What treatments might be in my pain management plan?
There are many therapies your provider at TruWell Health could include in your pain management plan.
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Ultrasound therapy
- Electrical stimulation
- PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy
- Joint injections
- Epidural injections
- Nerve blocks
The Advanced Arthritis Relief Protocol™ (AARP) is a primary tool in many patients’ pain management plans. AARP utilizes advanced interventions like viscosupplementation (injections of hyaluronic acid that lubricate your joints).
Your provider at TruWell Health also helps you understand your chronic pain better, so you know what’s happening and why when you feel pain. They help you learn how to change the way you work or go about daily tasks and ways to manage when pain interferes with your life.
