Pain Management Q & A
What is pain management?
Pain management encompasses a range of treatments designed to alleviate discomfort. At Dunia Health Clinic, our team provides personalized pain management services tailored to your specific needs and preferences.
What causes pain?
Pain can arise from various sources, including injuries, illnesses, or underlying medical conditions. Common causes of discomfort include sports injuries, work-related injuries, car accidents, fractures, tendinitis, joint issues, headaches, migraines, drug withdrawal, fibromyalgia, arthritis, osteoporosis, and other chronic diseases. If you’re experiencing severe or persistent pain, seeking evaluation and treatment at Dunia Health Clinic is essential.
What are the symptoms of injuries?
Injuries can manifest with symptoms such as swelling, stiffness, discomfort, redness, warmth, bruising, decreased range of motion, or limited mobility. The severity of your condition may vary, but prompt treatment, including pain management, can facilitate a quicker recovery.
Is pain management right for me?
To determine if pain management is suitable for you, our providers at Dunia Health Clinic will discuss your symptoms and medical history. They will conduct a thorough physical examination and may recommend blood tests, urine tests, X-rays, MRIs, or other imaging procedures to identify the root cause of your pain and develop an effective treatment plan.
What are my pain management options?
We offer a variety of pain management solutions at Dunia Health Clinic, including:
- Lifestyle Changes: Modifying your lifestyle can reduce the risk of ongoing pain or aid in recovery after an injury. This may include rest, ice, compression, elevation (RICE) for injuries, maintaining a healthy weight, regular exercise, stress reduction, and a balanced diet. Avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption is also essential.
- Oral Medications: Medications tailored to your condition can alleviate discomfort resulting from illness, disease, or injury.
- Injections: Our clinic provides steroid and other types of injections to alleviate joint pain and persistent discomfort.
- Physical Therapy: Stretching and strength exercises, as well as therapeutic massage, can expedite healing after an injury and reduce the risk of reinjury.
- Surgery: For severe tissue degeneration or injuries, surgical intervention may be recommended to facilitate a complete recovery and pain relief.
- Suboxone®: This treatment option is available for opioid dependence and is effective in reducing cravings for pain medication and mitigating withdrawal symptoms.
