At Westcare Clinics, patients suffering from post-surgical pain may be treated with pain management techniques, joint and soft tissue injections, and occupational medicine. The right treatment option will depend on the patient’s unique cause and form of pain.
Patients suffering from post-surgical pain may obtain relief by incorporating pain management techniques into treatment; these techniques may include cold and heat therapy, physical therapy, therapeutic massage, gentle exercise, biofeedback, mind-body techniques, music therapy, and occupational therapy. The pain management techniques will be customized according to the patient’s needs.
Joint and soft tissue injections, such as epidural injections (interlaminar and transforaminal), piriformis injection, sacroiliac joint injections, and trigger point injections, can also help ease and treat post-surgical pain. The type of soft tissue injection that is done will depend on the type, severity, and location of the pain.
Westcare Clinics offers occupational medicine to help patients continue working. Our healthcare practitioners are available to train employers to adapt the workplace and worker responsibilities to the physical limitations of their employees.
