Pain Injections Q & A

What is chronic pain?

Chronic pain refers to pain that lasts three months or longer. It’s normal to experience pain after an injury, but the pain usually disappears once you’re healed. With chronic pain, the pain persists even after your injury has healed. You may also develop chronic pain if there’s an underlying health issue that was exacerbated by your injury.

Your pain can impact many aspects of your life and lead to other health issues, such as difficulty sleeping, mood changes, and lack of energy. Finding treatments that can help you get relief from your pain can be difficult and frustrating.

The team at Advanced Integrated Medical Center takes a holistic approach to the treatment of pain and looks for the root cause of your pain so you get targeted treatment aimed at full resolution and relief.

What are pain injections?

To help you get relief from your pain, the team at Advanced Integrated Medical Center offers pain injections. The types of injections available include:

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid injections are used to provide pain relief from arthritis. Hyaluronic acid is similar to a substance naturally found in your joints, and the injection helps lubricate and cushion your joint to reduce your pain and improve motion.

Lidocaine

Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that blocks nerve signals to reduce pain. During your injection, the lidocaine is administered directly into the area where you’re experiencing pain to provide relief.

Procaine

Like lidocaine, procaine is a local anesthetic that’s injected directly into the source of your pain to numb the area and relieve your discomfort.

Trigger point

A trigger point injection consists of an anesthetic and steroid that Mr. Lowther injects directly into a muscle knot to help relieve tension and pain.

The injections offered at Advanced Integrated Medical Center may help provide you relief from your pain so you can decrease your use of other pain medication and participate in therapy.
