Pain Management Q & A

What is medical pain management?

Modern medical pain management diagnoses and treats several painful conditions. Medication is just one part of a comprehensive, closely monitored pain relief treatment plan that also includes physical therapy and guided X-ray procedures.

Dr. Abdelfattah utilizes the premier physician resource UpToDateⓇ for the most recent information and trends in medical pain management. Medical pain management is used to treat conditions such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Knee Pain
  • Neck pain
  • Neuropathy
  • Sciatica
  • Somatic disorders

Does physical therapy relieve pain?

Physical therapy helps ill and injured patients increase movement and manage pain. It’s a noninvasive, painless alternative to more invasive treatment methods like surgery. Physical therapy can be customized based on your symptoms, diagnosis, and health history.   

Standard physical therapy techniques to reduce pain include:

  • Electric muscle stimulation
  • Exercise therapy
  • Heat and cold therapy
  • Massage

What other pain relief options are available?

Chronic Pain Relief offers a wide variety of pain relief injections and interventions. Medication can be injected directly into the affected area to reduce pain and inflammation at the source. He also uses epidural steroid injections to treat pain from spinal stenosis or herniated discs.

For severe and chronic pain, Dr. Abdelfattah implants a small device in your body that continually blocks the transmission of pain to the brain.

Pain management therapies are constantly improving. That's why Dr. Abdelfattah uses the premier clinician resource, UpToDate.

UpToDate offers the most current, evidence-based medical information, free of influence from pharmaceutical companies and other corporate entities. More than a million clinicians around the world contribute research findings and data to UpToDate, which helps Dr. Abdelfattah make the best medical decisions for every patient.

You don’t have to live with pain any longer. Dr. Abdelfattah does everything possible to relieve your pain with minimally invasive techniques and treatments. He treats both your symptoms and the underlying conditions and daily life stressors that contribute to your pain.
