What conditions do pain management specialists treat?
Patients come to us with a wide range of issues, such as:
Neck and Back Pain: Pains in the neck and back are both common, with many occupational hazards and ordinary lifestyle habits contributing. Head pain can be related to a number of factors as well. Whether you have stress headaches, referred pain from elsewhere in the body, or pain from an accident or injury, the right care can give you a new lease on life.
Pain from Injuries or Accidents: Injuries and accidents take place every day. Expert pain management can help you take back control of your life. A sports injury, for example, often involves serious pain stemming from orthopedic complications. Sometimes this pain lasts for years.
Car accidents frequently lead to problems like whiplash that can cause pain for months. Pain arising from car accident injuries is one of our top specialties.
With the right combination of treatments, you can accelerate wound healing and minimize loss of athletic performance.
Pain from Surgery: Surgery requires that the body undergo certain acute traumas. This usually involves some form of pain during recovery, and pain management can help you reduce your dependence on medications such as opioids. Pains from surgery can be complicated and might even change from day to day, so our surgery recovery protocols are customized to your specific needs, supporting your body’s natural healing process.

What is pain management?
We offer a variety of treatments, including but not limited to:
Chiropractic Treatment: Seemingly minor misalignments of muscle and bone can be the driving force behind severe pain. Chiropractic is one of the best methods of managing pain in the back, neck and shoulders. It consists of a gradual plan of manual adjustments that restore bones and muscles their natural, healthy alignment, often increasing range of motion instantly.
Therapeutic Exercises: Multi-Care Medical continues to evaluate and introduce new therapy strategies for pain management of the head, neck, back, and more. Our comprehensive patient intake process allows us to learn quickly what ideas are most likely to help you. Our personnel are experienced in cryotherapy, electrical muscle stimulation and many more proven methods using cutting-edge technology to achieve real relief.
Orthopedics: Orthopedics is the science of caring for the bones, muscles, nerves and joints, and optimizing how they work together. It encompasses chiropractic, massage therapy and other treatments supporting resiliency, range of motion and functional strength.
Many chronic pain conditions begin with misalignment of the bones or chronic inflammation in the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic treatments rehabilitate the damage through targeted exercises and training. These promote blood flow and enhance healing.
Neurology: Neuropathic pain originates in the nervous system, including the brain. This makes it challenging to treat. We offer the most sophisticated technology available for pinpointing the cause of neuropathic pain. Then, various tools can be used to stimulate and re-train nervous function.
