What Is Pain Management?

What Is Pain Management Carson City NVIf you’re living with acute or chronic pain, you could benefit from the services of a pain management specialist. But, what is pain management, exactly? Pain management is an area of medicine focusing on relieving pain and improving patients’ quality of life. Pain management specialists will consider a number of factors — such as when the pain started, how intense the pain is, and whether there’s anything that aggravates or relieves the pain — to determine the course of action best suited for a patient’s needs.

Common Pain Management Techniques

There are a number of methods used to manage pain, and the one that’s right for you will depend on your specific condition. Some of the most common pain management techniques include:

  • Epidural injections — Injecting a steroid into the area around the spinal cord can reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
  • Pain pumps — With a pain pump in place, medication can automatically be delivered to the spinal cord at regular intervals to reduce or even block pain signals.
  • Spinal cord stimulators — These devices produce mild electrical pulses designed to interrupt pain signals.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.

"My entire experience was just as good as I had planned…a great day! Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent. Thanks a lot!"
