At Westcare Clinics, healthcare practitioners treat lower extremity pain with joint and soft tissue injections, pain management techniques, and occupational medicine, depending on the exact location, cause, and severity of the pain.
Joint and soft tissue injections, such as epidural injections (interlaminar and transforaminal), sacroiliac joint injections, piriformis injection, and trigger point injections, can help ease and treat lower extremity pain. The type of injection that is done will depend on the severity and location of the pain.
Patients suffering from lower extremity pain may benefit from pain management techniques, such as cold and heat therapy, physical therapy, therapeutic massage, mind-body techniques, gentle exercise, music therapy, biofeedback, and occupational therapy. The pain management techniques will be customized according to the patient’s needs.
Westcare Clinics also offers occupational medicine to help patients maintain the strength and flexibility they need to continue working. Our healthcare practitioners are available to train employers to adapt the workplace and worker responsibilities to the physical limitations of their employees.
