Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Pain management refers to the medical specialty of treating musculoskeletal, neuropathic, and spinal pain. Pain management specialists emphasize the importance of early intervention and cutting-edge minimally invasive procedures when treating pain, rather than narcotics and invasive surgery.

Which conditions does pain management treat?

Pain management techniques and treatments can help alleviate the symptoms of many different conditions, including:

  • Back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Neck pain
  • Herniated disc
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Joint pain
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Knee pain
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
  • Cancer pain
  • Sports injury pain
  • Sciatica
  • Nerve pain

Interventional techniques provide long-lasting relief for many of the above conditions. Rather than masking the symptoms with prescription pain medication, interventional pain management treatments target the root of your pain.

How is pain treated?

The Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness team offers many cutting-edge pain management techniques, such as:

Sacroiliac joint injection

The team can inject a local anesthetic into the large joint between your sacrum — a large bony structure located near the bottom of your spine — and your pelvis to relieve joint pain.

Epidural injection

An epidural injection is an injection of steroids into the spine. This minimally invasive injection can help relieve neck, back, and leg pain.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves inserting very small needles into predetermined points throughout the body. This classic Chinese technique is believed to help restore the balance of energy in your body. When practiced regularly, acupuncture can alleviate chronic pain.

Viscosupplementation injection

A viscosupplementation injection uses hyaluronic acid gel, a naturally occurring substance in your body, to target and reduce pain — primarily knee pain — caused by osteoarthritis.

Spinal injection

The team uses X-ray guided spinal injections to help relieve back and neck pain in the safest way possible. Thanks to X-ray technology, the team can effectively target inflamed nerve roots, which reduces inflammation and stops your pain at the source.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

PRP therapy uses the platelet-rich plasma in your own blood to repair damaged tissues, muscles, ligaments, and joints. During a PRP appointment, the team draws your blood and runs it through a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. Then, they inject the plasma directly into the area that’s causing you pain. This helps stimulate your body’s natural healing response to repair damage and reduce pain.
