What can cause severe or ongoing pain?

Pain can develop because of an illness, disease, or injury. Chronic pain may result from arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, gout, fibromyalgia, or other chronic conditions. 

Your risk of pain increases because of a family history of pain-causing conditions, mental health challenges, carrying excess weight, playing contact sports, or sustaining an automobile or work-related accident. 

Which pain management solution is best for me?

To determine which pain management treatment you may be a candidate for, a LocalMD provider discusses your medical history, reviews your symptoms, weighs you, checks your vital signs, and completes a physical exam. 

They may recommend blood testing, ultrasounds, other imaging procedures, or additional diagnostic tests that pinpoint the cause of your discomfort to provide relief.

What should I expect during pain management?

A pain management treatment plan depends on the cause and severity of your discomfort. Your specialist may recommend the following:

  • Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE)
  • Bracing, splinting, or casting
  • Over-the-counter medications
  • Prescription medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Massage
  • Injections
  • Regenerative medicine
  • Nerve stimulation
  • Rehabilitation
  • Medical procedures
  • Behavioral therapy

If you need care from another specialist for a complex medical condition, your LocalMD provider offers referrals to ensure you receive the most appropriate treatment. They follow up with you as needed to ensure the quality, pain-free life you deserve, with a low risk of complications.
