Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

The pain management services available at Naperville Internist focus on relieving chronic pain from injuries or disease and keeping you physically active.

Dr. Marwaha and the medical team customize a pain management plan that meets your individual needs. They can address chronic pain that originates from diseases like:

  • Periostitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

Pain management services are also available to treat pain from musculoskeletal injuries and overly tight or knotted muscles (trigger points).

What treatments are used for pain management?

To help you find rapid and long-lasting relief of persistent pain, Dr. Marwaha and the team use a variety of advanced techniques in the office. Depending on your condition and the location and severity of your pain, you may benefit from:

Pain injections

Pain injections deliver anesthetic medications directly into the affected joint or injured muscle to interfere with pain signals that travel to your brain.

Steroid injections

Steroid injections contain anti-inflammatory medications to reduce chronic inflammation that contributes to pain.

Trigger point injections

Trigger point injections use a dry needle that goes directly into areas of overly tight muscles to release tension and reduce persistent muscular pain.

Regenerative medicine

The Naperville Internist team also uses regenerative medicine for pain relief and to promote healing in your body. Injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells stimulate your body to produce new, healthy cells to replace damaged ones. 

By addressing the root cause of pain, regenerative therapies ensure long-term pain relief and an increase in your mobility.

When should I consider pain management services?

Pain management services are beneficial for those who are living with chronic pain that’s not treatable with conservative approaches, such as physical therapy, over-the-counter medications, and lifestyle changes.

Dr. Marwaha and the medical team can determine if pain management services are right for you by reviewing your medical history and current health. They customize a treatment plan using one or more pain management techniques and carefully monitor the progress of your treatment.

In addition to pain-relieving injections, you may benefit from the Naperville Internist providers’ nutritional counseling and weight loss services to reduce unnecessary pressure on your joints. The physicians also work with you on lifestyle changes to reduce your risk for painful injuries or conditions like arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome.

If you can’t find relief for chronic pain with your current treatment, schedule a pain management consultation at Naperville Internist online or by phone today.
