Pain Management Q & A

How does pain management work?

Pain management is a personalized approach to treating your pain-causing condition and minimizing your symptoms, so you can get back to the activities you enjoy with few-to-no limitations. Your customized pain management plan is designed to:

  • Promote healing
  • Decrease discomfort
  • Improve flexibility and range of motion

Pain management often incorporates medications and lifestyle changes, which are tailored to your diagnosis and the severity of your symptoms.

Which type of pain management treatment do I need?

When you come to visit Zenith Care Group for your chronic pain evaluation, Theo has a conversation with you about what you’re experiencing and which treatments you’ve tried in the past. It’s helpful to send over your medical records from your previous provider, so Theo can assess your health and create a more personalized treatment plan.

Depending on your condition, Theo may recommend:

  • Pain-relieving medications
  • Anti-inflammatory injections 
  • Cognitive behavior therapy 
  • Weight management planning
  • Intravenous (IV) hydration therapy
  • Personalized stretching and exercise planning
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

Theo is an expert in innovative pain management solutions and stays up-to-date with the latest advancements in medicine. He spends time selecting just the right solutions for your needs and educating you about how they work. 

If you’re recovering from surgery or an injury, Theo can help you get started on occupational or physical therapy to rebuild your strength. He can even partner with your orthopedist or another specialist throughout your recovery period to make sure your pain improves over time.

When can I expect results with pain management?

Pain management from Zenith Care Group is designed to provide both fast-acting and long-lasting relief. Theo may prescribe medication or provide an injection (like cortisone) that helps you get immediate relief from pain. 

But the rest of your pain management plan is designed to minimize pain and reduce inflammation over time, while helping your body heal, so you won’t need to rely so much on medications or injections in the future.
