Is prescription medication the only option to treat pain?
Many patients are understandably concerned about becoming addicted to prescription opioids. Although these medications are sometimes the best short-term solution, they're far from the only option if you have pain. Depending on your symptoms, your pain medicine specialist may recommend one or more of these treatment options:
- BOTOX Injections: Injections can ease muscle spasms and prevent or reduce the number of headaches or migraines you have.
- Trigger Point Injections: Painful knots called trigger points send pain shooting through your muscles. Trigger point injections release tight muscle fibers, ending your pain.
- Regeneration Injection Therapy: These injections encourage healing and regrowth and can be helpful if ligament, joint or tendon conditions are responsible for your pain.
- Peripheral Joint Injections: Peripheral joint injections contain a steroid that reduces inflammation and pain caused by joint injuries or arthritis.
- Viscosupplementation: Injecting hyaluronic acid or other substances into arthritic or damaged joints increases cushioning and lubrication, which reduces pain with movement.
- Implantable Devices: If other treatments haven't been helpful, your pain medicine specialist may recommend implanting a neurostimulator under the skin. The device releases mild electrical impulses that prevent you from feeling pain. Instead, you may only notice a tingling sensation. An implantable device that slowly releases pain medication is another option.
