 What Is Pain Management?

Pain management is a multi-disciplinary approach to treating pain. Institutes of Health doctors use evidence-based medicine to treat chronic and acute pain. More than 116 million people in the U.S. deal with pain daily, but that does not have to become your normal. Through a combination of advanced physical and cognitive therapies, medications, and other treatments, we can help you return to an active lifestyle.

     

     Common Causes of Workplace Injuries

    Treating workplace injuries is our specialty. However, the breadth of these ailments is significant, and we have a wide range of treatment strategies and approaches to address them all. We encourage you to seek a referral from your doctor or employer for workers’ compensation if you are injured on the job. The types of injuries we can address at Institutes of Health include:

    • Neck and Back Injuries – These may occur due to herniated discs, muscle strains, or pinched nerves.
    • Shoulder Pain – If you repeatedly lift heavy objects, you may injure your shoulder or rotator cuff.
    • Knee and Hip Pain – This can happen because of trips and falls, excessive kneeling and bending, or repetitive stress.
    • Hand and Wrist Injuries – The most common hand or wrist injury is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which may lead to pain, weakness, or numbness.
    • Ankle and Foot Injuries – Strains and sprains happen when you slip and fall or overstretch a ligament or muscle at work.
    • Head injury and PTSD
