Pain Management for Long Branch NJ Patients

What is Pain Management?

The process of pain management and rehabilitation is often two-fold. Under the supervision of a medical doctor, patients in pain may receive either one or both of the following:

Non-Pharmacological Intervention: This approach includes physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic care, and/or massage therapy.

Pharmacological Intervention: For the relief of serious pain, the careful use of painkilling medications may be employed. Some patients may require injections of a steroid or anesthetic numbing agent. The purpose of this strategy is to help patients find relief in order to make use of physical therapy and other rehabilitation techniques as described above.

How is Pain Management at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation different?

While pain management in general may share some common practices, the system of care at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation is an updated approach that makes the process easier and more effective for Long Branch pain management patients.

For example, in order to minimize the stress that may compound the pain management process, our office offers all services in one location. Our medical facility has an in-house staff that consists of a Medical Doctor (one who specializes in non-surgical pain management), a team of physical therapists, an acupuncturist, and Doctors of Chiropractic. Because our team of healthcare practitioners varies from traditional to holistic, we are able to offer the healthiest, least invasive, and most successful forms of pain management.

The goal of pain management for Long Branch patients is to relieve pain, restore movement and functioning, and enhance the health of the entire body. We are dedicated to helping patients avoid unnecessary surgeries (particularly for those with back pain conditions) and to minimize the need for painkilling medications.

This comprehensive system has an added (and important) benefit: all of our practitioners work in close collaboration with each other. This means that the problems that sometimes plague the disjointed, multi-office approach used elsewhere are eradicated; each patient’s program of rehabilitation is created with a team-based approach for enhanced effectiveness.

Which conditions are treated at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation?

The Medical Director at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation is at the center of each patient’s program of care. With a focus on conditions affecting the musculoskeletal and neurological systems of the body, our doctor works hand-in-hand with our physical therapists, acupuncturist, and Chiropractic Doctors to treat the following conditions (among others):

When pain is restricting mobility and normal activity, physical therapy is often used to build strength, flexibility, and to get patients back to everyday functioning without pain. For natural and proven pain relief, acupuncture is recommended for patients; in many cases, this helps to reduce the need for painkilling medications. Acupuncture also soothes the anxiety and stress that often accompany painful conditions. Additionally, chiropractic care addresses issues with the nervous system that may be causing or exacerbating pain.

Our Medical Director may provide long-term pain relief with a variety of minimally invasive procedures, including Epidural Steroid Injections, Trigger Point Injections (for muscle pain), and Joint Injections.
