What is Conservative Pain Management?

At Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation, we believe in the body’s ability to heal itself. Treatment begins with the most conservative methods possible. Our Medical Doctor coordinates with physical therapists to create rehabilitation programs that address both pain and the cause of pain. We also use natural methods of pain relief, including acupuncture, to help patients begin to heal.

At our multi-disciplinary pain management and rehabilitation facility, we have incorporated a medical staff specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R). This medical specialty focuses on the non-surgical treatment of many painful conditions, including disc problems, headaches, numbness, and tingling as well as sports injuries and auto accident injuries.

Our medical office works hard to reduce the need for drug use. However, we recognize that some cases require short-term relief in order for the body to begin the healing process. In such cases, our Medical Director may recommend and perform any one of a number of corticosteroid injections for pain relief. These injections may include facet joint injections (for such conditions as arthritis), trigger point injections (used for muscle pain or fibromyalgia), or epidural steroid injections (in cases of lower back pain or disc injuries).
