Have you been experiencing stiffness, inflammation, or any other joint discomfort due to arthritis? Resolute Pain Solutions may be able to provide the pain relief you need.
While arthritis remains incurable, there have been great advances in treatment. Processes typically involve reducing joint inflammation and preventing further damage. Treatments also seek to relieve pain, discomfort, and other symptoms in order to improve the mobility and function of the joints. Arthritis typically affects the neck, mid back, or lower back as well as the hips and knees.
The specific arthritis treatment plan will differ for each patient depending on the severity of the condition, the symptoms being experienced, and the personal treatment goals for each individual. Specific radiologic tests may be ordered to assist your Resolute pain team in diagnosing and treating your condition. Some patients will see pain relief through various physical therapy techniques, while others may require medications or a minimally invasive injection therapy in order to achieve desired results.
Physical therapy can provide great relief for those suffering from arthritis pain, helping to improve mobility, strength, and range of motion. Hydrotherapy, heat, and cold treatments can be used for relieving pain, reducing stress, and relaxing the surrounding muscles. There are several physical therapy techniques that patients can perform while at home, as well.
If therapy does not sufficiently address the pain, medicinal approaches can also be prescribed to provide relief. Prescription medication can be used in order to reduce inflammation, slow the progression of the condition, or induce remission. Many patients require a combination of non-drug and drug treatments.
As with any medical treatment, there is a potential to experience side effects, depending on the specific type and dosage of medication being prescribed. While most side effects are quite mild, some are capable of causing severe problems. Any concerns regarding side effects should be discussed with your physician.
Pain Management doctors are highly specialized in treating chronic conditions, including arthritis. They can address not only the physical aspects of pain, but also the emotional toll that chronic pain can produce. As with any medical condition, it may take time, but advanced treatments and expert help are available to find the right balance of medication and lifestyle change that works for you.
