Orthopedic treatment can be the ideal solution when spinal or musculoskeletal ailments cause chronic pain and affect regular functioning. Effective pain management programs with orthopedics are available at leading healthcare centers.

The human musculoskeletal structure is an engineering marvel that enables fluid movement. However, factors such as aging, accidents, sports-related injuries, faulty posture, arthritis, tendonitis, and so on can damage the system, cause pain, and affect functioning and mobility. That’s when pain management with orthopedics can help. Orthopedic treatment is especially effective for back pain management.

Diagnosing the Reasons for Chronic Pain

The orthopedic approach to pain management is to help patients regain mobility by relieving muscle and ligament strain, improve their overall health condition, and restore the quality of life. If you suffer from chronic pain due to a musculoskeletal issue, you should see an experienced orthopedist at a professional pain management center.

The first step in the treatment would be the accurate diagnosis of the real cause of the pain. If required, radiological evaluations with X-ray, MRI, or CT scans may be performed to find out if there are fractures, contusions, torn ligaments, problems associated with the carpal tunnel, or other such conditions. A customized orthopedic treatment plan would then be developed to help treat the condition.

An established pain management center would provide treatment for both the sensory as well as emotional components of pain. Chronic pain management programs are developed with the help of specialists from different branches of medicine. In addition to orthopedic treatment, pharmacologic as well as non-pharmacologic procedures and psychological approaches are used to treat pain and provide speedy relief.

Components of an Orthopedic Treatment Plan

Pain management centers provide different types of solution for different problems. Orthopedic specialties may be available for sports medicine, pediatric orthopedics, foot and ankle, spine, hip and knee, and shoulder, elbow and hand. Orthopedic treatment provided can range from minimally invasive procedures to complex surgery. Some of the common orthopedic solutions for pain management include:

  • Therapeutic exercises and medication
  • Application of ice/heat packs
  • Physical therapy, bracing, massage and acupuncture
  • Spinal injections and lumbar microsurgical discectomy
  • Spinal manipulation, cervical disc compression, and prolotherapy
