Medical Care for Pain Management
Our medical staff is spearheaded by a doctor specializing in non-surgical pain management. By working in tight collaboration with a full staff of physical therapists, acupuncturist, and doctors of chiropractic, our system of care ensures that treatment is targeted, individualized, and results-oriented. The purpose of using an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach is to address not only the pain itself, but the specific cause of pain.
Our medical director may recommend and use injections of steroids or anesthetic numbing agents when necessary. This strategy has a very specific goal: to help patients who are in extreme pain take advantage of physical therapy programs and other rehabilitation plans.
In other offices, patients in disabling and immobilizing pain are often recommended for surgery before all other treatment options have been exhausted; Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation ensures that every attempt has been made to avoid surgery and heal with healthy practices. Some of the options we provide include:
• Physical Therapy for Pain Management in Avon-By-The-Sea: Physical therapy is an essential element in many pain management programs. The term ‘physical therapy’ actually encompasses a range of therapeutic options—both active (exercise) and passive (laser therapy, electrotherapy).
• Acupuncture: Acupuncture has a number of benefits; in addition to providing pain relief, it is also an excellent method of relieving stress and anxiety while accelerating the healing process. For some, the emotional turmoil of living with a painful condition can actually impede the healing process. Acupuncture lowers heart rate and calms the body. Additionally, it increases circulation to affected areas for faster healing while helping the brain to release certain painkilling chemicals (serotonin, endorphins) for natural pain relief.
• Chiropractic Care: Misalignments of the spine disrupt the normal, healthy functioning of the nervous system. This can lead to pain and a variety of other conditions. Chiropractic care is used in our office to ensure the total health of the spine and to treat a number of health concerns.
At Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation, we are prepared to treat a wide variety of painful conditions, including auto accident injuries, sciatica, disc problems, and more (see below for a more comprehensive list). Additionally, because we offer both traditional and holistic options for care, we are able to address a number of conditions which may or may not be related to pain (such as smoking cessation and depression).
