Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Pain management is medical care for chronic pain. The focus is on long-term relief so you can resume regular activities and enjoy a great quality of life. 

At Genesis Pain and Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Enty uses a comprehensive model focusing on accurate diagnosis and individualized treatment plans for all types of chronic pain. 

When might I need pain management? 

Pain management can help with a wide range of problems, including:

  • Consistent or constant pain
  • Changing pain, such as pain that radiates down a leg or arm
  • Over-the-counter medications don’t work
  • Relying on opioids or other strong medications 
  • Poor sleep quality 
  • Poor quality of life
  • Not healing after an injury

If you feel like you’re losing the fight against pain, pain management can help you win that battle.

What conditions can pain management treat?

Pain management can treat virtually any cause of long-lasting pain. Conditions that most frequently prompt patients to seek pain management include: 

  • Whiplash
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated disc
  • Pinched nerve
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoporotic fractures

Some patients experience pain after an accident but never get better as expected. Others experience increasing pain as their bodies change over time. Dr. Enty treats all types of long-lasting pain. 

What does pain management involve?

The pain management process starts with a comprehensive evaluation of your individual needs. Dr. Enty discusses your issues, reviews your complete medical history, and performs an exam. 

If you have recent imaging tests, he reviews those tests and may request new X-rays, MRI, CT scans, or other imaging tests to look for changes and pinpoint problems. 

Some problems are hard to pinpoint with traditional imaging tests, so Dr. Enty may recommend a minimally invasive procedure like a discogram to determine exactly where your pain comes from.

After isolating the cause of your pain, Dr. Enty recommends a treatment plan focused on lasting pain relief. Instead of prescribing potentially harmful drugs, Dr. Enty uses his many years of anesthesia and pain management experience to perform procedures with long-lasting results. 

Your treatment plan may include injections, radiofrequency ablation, or other procedures that deactivate the source of pain. For stubborn chronic pain, an option like a spinal cord stimulator can give you permanent relief.
