Pain Management Q & A

What is Pain Management?

Pain management aims to minimize pain using a comprehensive variety of treatment options. These options range from conservative physical therapies to more aggressive nonsurgical techniques.

If you have chronic pain, the board-certified pain specialists at NJ Spine and Wellness can treat your condition using the latest state-of-the-art pain management techniques.

You might think medication is your only source of relief, but pain management doesn't have to involve potent, potentially addictive drugs. In many cases, you can relieve pain and improve function successfully using no medications at all.

What Conditions Can Pain Management Treat?

The NJ Spine and Wellness team provides pain management solutions to patients experiencing chronic pain due to:

  • Accidents
  • Exercise stress
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Back and neck pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Sports injuries
  • Failed surgeries
  • Joint pain
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Side effects from cancer treatments

Whatever the cause of your pain, the multidisciplinary NJ Spine and Wellness team can help.

What Treatments Does Pain Management Include?

Some of the minimally invasive pain management treatments the NJ Spine and Wellness team uses include:

  • Trigger Point Injections: Trigger points are knotted areas of muscle fibers that can be highly sensitive and a source of chronic pain. Injecting them with a combination of local anesthetic and steroid medication helps relieve the inflammation and provides temporary pain relief.
  • X-Ray Guided Injection Therapy: Your provider injects an anti-inflammatory steroid and a local anesthetic into your joints to provide pain relief that can last for several months.
  • Spinal Cord Stimulation: Stimulating the spinal nerves that send pain signals to your brain interrupts the communication, resulting in less pain. You need to undergo an implantation procedure to fit the spinal cord stimulator, which you control with a remote device.
  • Nerve Blocks: Nerve blocks are injections of local anesthetic into your joints or spine that temporarily numb pain.
  • Pulsed Radiofrequency Ablation: Radiofrequency (RF) ablation uses radio wave energy to heat nerve endings responsible for pain signals. RF ablation is a long-lasting option for knee and spine pain.
  • Lumbar, Thoracic, and Cervical Epidural Injections: Like joint injections, epidural injections contain steroids and local anesthetic. Your provider injects the drugs into the epidural space that surrounds your spine. Lumbar injections go into your lower back, thoracic injections in your upper back, and cervical injections into your neck.
  • Regenerative Medicine: Regenerative medicine treatments are injectable preparations that use cells, growth factors, and other naturally occurring substances to promote tissue growth and repair. Two of the most widely-used forms of regenerative medicine are stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
