Treatment Options for Acute and Chronic Pain
Our multidisciplinary approach to health care at Summit Health is designed to effectively treat and manage short-term pain, long-term pain, or chronic pain. Everyone’s pain is different and affects many aspects of an individual’s life, including energy, mood, work, sleep, relationships, and self-esteem. For this reason, we work to treat the whole patient and not just their symptoms. Through close collaboration with primary care doctors and specialists, our team can determine which treatment options will ensure the best outcome and develop an effective program tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs, help restore function, and improve the overall quality of life.
Treatment may include:
Steroid Injections for Pain Management
Patients with neck, arm, back, and leg pain may benefit from a minimally invasive procedure such as an epidural steroid injection (ESI). ESI is a minimally invasive procedure that helps to relieve neck, arm, back, and leg pain. Through careful injection, medicine is delivered to the fat-filled area between the bone and the protective sac of spinal nerves, relieving pain for days, months, and possibly years.
Physical Therapy for Pain Management
Physical therapy is the rehabilitative process of restoring physical function and mobility in order to achieve an individual’s highest level of physical function. Our physical therapy team specializes in the rehabilitation of orthopedic and sports-related injuries in pediatric, adolescent, and adult patients. Learn More.
