Pain Management

Pain may manifest itself as aches, numbness, stiffness, burning and other irritating sensations. Pain management deals with finding ways to provide relief from pain. Our pain management doctors work with patients and provide them opportunities of relief from pain. Physical therapists and chiropractors also form part of the skilled team at St. Tereiza Physical Therapy & Rehab. Patients may suffer from acute or traumatic pain, as well as chronic pain. Back pain related to accidents, sports related knee injuries, and slips and falls can result in chronic and debilitating pain, which requires timely medical attention.

Whether patients come in for knee pain treatment, shoulder or back pain treatment, we try to identify the root cause of your pain and eliminate it, while giving you greater insights on dealing with your condition. The treatment of pain involves both the sensory and emotional components of pain. While acute pain presents with certain distinguishing characteristics and treatment options, can be considerably and more quickly relieved once the chronic pain management treatment schedules require the services of practitioners belonging to different branches of medicine. Pharmacologic as well as non-pharmacologic procedures and psychological approaches, all may become necessary.

The sensory component of pain may be treated with chiropractic and physical therapies, medications, routine injections such as trigger point and epidural injections, and advanced interventional therapies.

Our pain management techniques include:

  • Exercise
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
  • Manual Techniques
  • Administration of analgesics, NSAIDs, narcotic medications, muscle relaxants, and anti-convulsants and antidepressants
  • Radiofrequency radio ablation
  • Surgically implanted electrotherapy devices
  • Prolotherapy
  • Injections

Many of the patients we treat are suffering from sports related injuries or chronic and debilitating pain. Whether a patient has had a work-related injury, been involved an accident, mild to severe sports injury or maybe is suffering from chronic/acute pain, The Center for Spine & Sports Medicine has made it our mission to help. We offer patients several non-surgical pain relief treatments such as:
