What Conditions does a Pain Management Specialist Treat?

Our PA pain management specialists treat all kinds of pain anywhere in the body and from a variety of causes. Many people who require treatment from a pain management specialist have orthopedic pain in the form of back, neck or joint pain stemming from osteoarthritis. But we also treat patients with pain caused by nerve damage, neurological disorders, cancer, and more. Some of the conditions we treat include:

  • Back pain
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Discogenic pain
  • Facial pain/headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Neck pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Pinched nerves
  • Sciatica
  • Synovial cysts

Coordinated Care for Spine and Joint Pain

Back pain, neck pain, and joint pain are three of the most common types of chronic pain. Because there are many conditions that can cause pain, it’s important that you seek care through a comprehensive orthopedic and spine program.

At Penn Highlands, our pain management specialists work with our orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine doctors, and physical rehabilitation experts to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and a customized treatment plan. Pain management is often involved throughout your treatment. It may relieve your pain completely without the need for further treatment. Or it might be used to give you temporary relief so that you can take other measures, such as physical therapy and lifestyle changes, to treat the underlying condition. It also is used in conjunction with orthopedic surgery to help manage pain after surgery and return as much function as possible.

No matter how you come into the Penn Highlands system of care for back, neck, or joint pain, you can be confident that you will get the benefit of our full orthopedic and spine team.

Are you struggling with back pain, neck pain or joint pain?

Ask your primary care provider for a referral to a PA pain management specialist or find a pain management doctor near you.

How will a PA Pain Management Specialist Treat my Pain?

Most pain can be treated conservatively by your primary care provider. If at-home treatments fail or pain persists longer than three months, you should seek the care of one of our PA pain management specialists. Chronic pain is complex in nature and often requires the expertise of physician trained in pain management. With emphasis on non-surgical, conservative pain management, the staff at our pain management clinics throughout central Pennsylvania will work with you to find the best treatment for your condition. Our goal is to provide you with effective treatment that allows you to enjoy your best life possible—without pain.

Your Pennsylvania pain medicine physician will evaluate your condition and work with you to create a treatment plan that may include:

  • Medication therapy with over-the-counter or non-opioid prescription drugs (Opioids are used for short-term pain relief, particularly after surgery, but are not effective as a long-term solution for chronic pain. If you are struggling with long-term use of pain medication, Penn Highlands offers programs to help you stop taking pain medication.)
  • Physical therapy, including stretching and therapeutic exercise as well as icing, and nerve stimulation
  • Alternative therapy, such as deep tissue massage or acupuncture
  • Injection therapy, including trigger point injections, Botox injections, and spinal injections
  • Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty for the treatment of cracked vertebrae
  • Nerve ablation, which involves the destruction of nerves to interrupt pain signals to the brain
  • Interventional procedures, such as nerve blocks and spinal cord stimulation, also designed to keep pain signals from reaching the brain

FAQs About Pain Management

Does pain management use opioids like Oxycontin® to treat chronic pain?

Pain management doctors or surgeons may prescribe the use of opioids for very short periods of time to provide initial pain relief. However, many studies have shown that opioids are not effective at relieving pain long term. In fact, they grow more ineffective at time and use of opioids can make recovery from surgery more difficult.

Penn Highlands pain management physicians use many other techniques and procedures instead of opioids to relieve chronic pain. These include conservative treatments such as physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, and steroid injections. They also perform procedures such as nerve blocks, nerve ablation, and spinal cord stimulation to interrupt pain signals from getting to the brain.

What are the most common types of pain treated by a pain management specialist?

Pain from spinal conditions in the low back, buttocks, legs, upper back, neck, and arms is the most common type of pain treated by pain management physicians. Joint pain also is a commonly treated condition. Spine and joint pain are often caused either by trauma or, most often, by osteoarthritis that is created as many people get older.

Penn Highlands pain management doctors can diagnose what is causing your pain and can treat all types of pain. They treat most types of chronic pain, including neuropathy and pain caused by cancer or cancer treatments.

Can back pain be treated?

Back pain is one of the most common reasons for people to miss work and one of the most common issues treated by primary care providers and pain management specialists. Nearly 80% of adults will experience back pain at some point in their lives. Thankfully, most of this is short lived.

Back pain can occur anywhere in the back and be sharp or dull, constant or intermittent. It often can cause pain in the buttocks, hips, and legs as well. Most back pain can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications such as Tylenol or Advil. Back pain that lasts three months or longer is considered to be chronic. If conservative treatment doesn’t relieve your back pain, talk to your doctor about a referral to a PA pain management specialist who can help.

Can back pain be treated without surgery?

Yes. The vast majority of back pain, in fact, can be treated without surgery. One of our PA pain medicine doctors can evaluate your back pain and recommend a treatment plan that may include physical therapy, medication, injection therapy, and/or interventional procedures, such as nerve blocks or spinal cord stimulation. Only a small percent of patients with back pain will need to have surgery.
