When should I seek professional help with pain relief?

Pain is a normal part of life and works to signal your brain that there’s a problem with your body. Your innate healing abilities can handle many types of pain within a few hours or days. But when pain is severe or lingers after a few days of self-care, it’s time to seek professional guidance. 

Acute pain places an enormous toll on your body. Left untreated, this strains your physical and emotional health. Chronic pain develops when pain continues for more than three months, limits your daily tasks, or requires medical management. 

When you notice that pain changes the course of your daily activities, scheduling a diagnostic exam is the right course of action. Highway Integrative Health Center specializes in preventive care and can help you find the answers you need.

What are some options for pain relief?

The first step is a thorough discussion of your experience with pain. Be prepared to share the details of when you notice pain, its location, and the conditions that make it better or worse. 

Medication might play a role in treating your pain, but drug therapy is never the only or preferred method. Pain medications, even over-the-counter options, can be hard for your body to process. 

A course of physical therapy is often a good option. This path uses guided exercises to strengthen your muscles, improve your balance, and enhance your balance and stability. Highway Integrative Health Center offers IV therapy to get your body the nutrients it needs to recover.

Steroid injections are also a solid option for pain relief. These injections are administered directly within an inflamed or painful joint. Steroid medication helps reduce inflammation, a primary source of joint pain, and some also contain pain medication.

What role do lifestyle modifications play in pain relief?

Making meaningful improvements to your daily habits is a great way to relieve pain and prevent new pain from developing. Maintaining a healthy weight and engaging in exercise you enjoy can go a long way toward reducing and preventing pain.

Some pain requires professional expertise, and you can rely on Highway Integrative Health Center for compassionate care. Telemedicine appointments and lab testing are available if needed.
