Pain Management Q&A

What is pain management?

Pain management is a personalized type of care that aims to reduce chronic pain and the effects it can have on your life. At Valley Spinal Care, pain management starts with an initial visit where the team locates the source of your pain and evaluates its duration and intensity.

Once the team has a feel for the type of pain you’re experiencing, they can choose from numerous procedures and services that may help improve healing, remove pressure from aggravated nerves, or relieve the stress associated with your pain. Chiropractic adjustments, as well as injections, laser or energy treatments, and lifestyle changes, may all be part of your plan.

Who can benefit from pain management?

Pain management includes services and treatments you may need if your musculoskeletal pain crosses the threshold from acute (short-term) to chronic (long-term). Chronic pain is long-lasting or recurrent and can severely impact your life. It can prevent you from getting the sleep you need, increase your stress, and interfere with your work productivity.

The team at Valley Spinal Care specializes in pain management for:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Joint pain
  • Widespread pain (e.g., fibromyalgia, myofascial pain disorder)

Pain in these categories can develop as the result of injuries, even if those injuries are acute. You can also get chronic musculoskeletal pain from various degenerative conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or osteoporosis. 

What are my treatment options for pain management?

Many individuals experiencing chronic pain find that the best way to manage it is through a combination of multiple therapies. The alternative and chiropractic treatments at Valley Spinal Care can minimize or eliminate your need for medications and, often, prevent you from needing surgery. 

For pain management, Valley Spinal Care offers:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Spinal decompression
  • Joint injections
  • Trigger point injections
  • Radial pressure wave therapy
  • Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM)
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
  • Acupuncture

In addition to services like these, the team can help you adopt healthy lifestyle changes, including eating a more nutritious diet or an exercise program to boost your wellness and your body’s capacity to heal.
