Chronic Pain Management

Pain is the body’s way of signaling that something is wrong. From exercise to surgery, there are many treatment options for addressing pain and its underlying causes, depending on a patient’s specific case. Our team at Scottsdale Center for Robotic Surgery (SCRS), under the direction of Dr. Shane Martin, can help provide long-term chronic pain management in Scottsdale.

There are two types of pain–acute and chronic. Acute pain is new pain that develops and only lasts for a short time, typically no longer than a few weeks. On the other hand, chronic pain lasts more than three months and interferes with your lifestyle in the long term. It can either always be there or may come and go. Chronic pain is a significant medical concern and warrants a discussion with your healthcare provider. 

With unparalleled service and care, our experienced professionals at SCRS provide personalized treatment plans for pain relief. We are committed to supporting all our patients with a path to recovery based on their needs, fostering an environment of faith, hope, and healing.

Causes of Chronic Pain

Chronic pain can occur in many different parts of the body and for various reasons. Determining the underlying cause of your chronic pain is the first step in developing an effective treatment plan.

Some of the most common areas in the body subject to chronic pain include:

  • Joints
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Muscles
  • Scar tissue
  • Areas surrounding a tumor
  • Nerves

Chronic pain has several causes, and your experience depends on the underlying condition. It is also possible for multiple causes to overlap. Some conditions that can cause chronic pain can be seen above.

Of course, the only way to determine the cause of your chronic pain is to consult your doctor about your specific situation. If you are experiencing chronic pain, you can schedule a consultation with us at SCRS.

How Is Chronic Pain Treated?

Once you discuss your symptoms with your healthcare provider, they can help you determine the proper course of action for treating your pain based on your specific case. Treatment for chronic pain often follows a tiered approach, as providers recommend starting with the least invasive treatment option before trying additional measures if the others are ineffective.

Everybody’s situation is different depending on their level of pain and the underlying causes. Our expert providers at SCRS can help you determine which treatment plan is best suited for you.

Common treatments for chronic pain include:

Medications – Over-the-counter medications, like general anti-inflammatory medications, prescription pain medicines, or prescription mental health medications, may reduce pain depending on your condition.

Physical and occupational therapy – Physical and occupational therapy can strengthen muscles surrounding areas of pain and improve the functionality of joints and muscles, helping to relieve pain.

Exercise regimens – Exercise regimens help strengthen your muscles and promote blood flow to damaged tissue in the body, reducing pain.

Injection therapies – Injection therapy with medications can help to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.

Lifestyle changes – Lifestyle changes like diet, stress management strategies, and behaviors may help reduce or manage pain.

Surgery – Surgery is a last resort, but it can provide long-term relief for those who are strong candidates.
