Our Winter Park, FL, pain expert offers alternative treatment options for effective relief.

Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability. If you are having trouble managing your long-term pain, then it’s time you turned to our Winter Park, FL, pain doctor Dr. Enrique Umpierre-Schuck for help.

Here at Central Florida Pain & Rehab Clinic, we work with a lot of patients who are dealing with chronic pain that simple at-home care and lifestyle modifications just can’t fully control. Here are some of the treatment options we offer:

Trigger Point Injections

A trigger point is an area of the body that contains sensitive, tender, or painful muscle tissue. There are many reasons for developing a trigger point, from acute to repetitive traumas, including,

  • Sports injuries
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Joint problems
  • Occupational stress

Just as the name suggests, these injections administer medication into the trigger point to relax the muscles, reducing pain and soreness. Once the muscle is relaxed, increased blood flow returns to the area to flush and reduce inflammation.

Intra-articular Peripheral Joint Injections

If you are dealing with degenerative musculoskeletal disorders, arthritis, or chronic joint pain, then you may be a candidate for intra-articular peripheral joint injections. All of these conditions have one thing in common: they cause inflammation. This inflammation is what leads to chronic pain. It also creates trouble with mobility and joint functionality.

These joint injections can reduce negative symptoms by administering corticosteroids into troublesome joints. The effects of these joint injections appear in as little as two days and the results are long-lasting. Patients will see a substantial improvement in joint pain, inflammation, and mobility.

Viscosupplementation

Patients dealing with arthritis should talk to our Winter Park, FL, pain management specialists about viscosupplementation, which involves injecting a jelly-like solution into arthritic joints (often the knees).

This is a great option for patients living with arthritis who can’t seem to manage their pain and inflammation with steroid injections and pain relievers. When other options have failed, viscosupplementation provides arthritis relief. It can take several weeks after injections to experience results.

Are you dealing with chronic pain in Winter Park, FL? If you’ve been unable to get your pain under control with at-home care then it’s important that you see a doctor who can help. No one should have to go through life with pain. Here at Central Florida Pain & Rehab Clinic, we want everyone to get the treatment they deserve.
