Healing through pain management
You probably know that pain accompanies injury, disease and even healing. Pain can also negatively impact or inhibit the healing process due to the stress, potential loss of sleep and depression that it often promotes. When you don’t feel well or are hurting, your body performs at a less optimal level. That's why pain management is critical.
Managing your pain is our priority at Goshen Physicians Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. Here, pain treatment begins with the least invasive and least potent options. If more pain relief is required, we take incremental steps toward a solution that works for you.
Our care ranges from lower level, recurring aches to acute and chronic pain as a result of surgery, an accident, a sports injury, disease and trauma. Our methods include physical therapy, oral medications, injections, intravenous medications and various pain blockers, among others.
Types of pain we treat
Acute pain generally occurs suddenly, usually the result of injury to bone, joints, muscle or organs. Pain of this kind is often sharper, more intense, but doesn’t last for long periods of time. As the injury heals, pain subsides.
Chronic pain lasts longer, is more persistent and often related to long-term disease. This type of pain can be ongoing and can become more intense depending on your activity level and overall health. Chronic pain is typically more difficult to treat medically than acute pain. Chronic pain often warns of tissue or even nerve damage.
