Pain management can refer to a few different treatment processes. The goal of pain management is to reduce pain caused by injury as much as possible, and to avoid further drastic treatment, such as surgery.
Many people who are injured in an accident go to physical therapy primarily to reduce or eliminate the pain caused by whiplash, disc herniation, fractures, and other injuries. Therapeutic exercises and manual therapy techniques are often able to help reduce a patient’s pain and avoid relying on pain medication. If after rest, physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, and safe medications you still have ongoing pain, you may have to perform an MRI to investigate the source of your pain. Depending on these outcomes, the doctor may determine that you qualify for a minimal invasive procedure to help better diagnose or treat your source of pain. The benefits of these procedures involve far less time for recovery compared to open procedures.
