How We Help Treat Chronic Pain at Southcoast Health
Your treatment options for acute or chronic pain will largely depend upon your symptoms and health history. The following are some common treatment options that we may prescribe for pain management:
- Medications — These may include NSAIDs, steroids, opioids or over-the-counter medications (like acetaminophen) to lessen symptoms and resulting pain.
- Procedures — Interventional techniques that involve injections into or around various levels of the spinal region. These can involve relatively superficial injections into the painful muscles, called trigger point injections, or may involve more invasive procedures. Spinal cord stimulators are used to disrupt pain signals travelling between the spinal cord and the brain to bring relief. Intrathecal drug delivery, or “pain pump,” is a method of giving medication directly to your spinal cord. Pain pumps deliver medication directly into the fluid around the spinal cord.
- Therapy — We can offer a variety of therapies, including physical, occupational, alternative and complementary, to help reduce patients’ pain levels.
Our pain specialists have seen patients with a variety of pain conditions, which means that we can find the best way for you to heal and enjoy living your life.
