Our experienced pain management doctors have a simple message for patients: You don’t have to live with chronic muscle, joint, bone or spinal pain. Today, there are many types of medications, as well as alternative treatments like acupuncture, physical therapy or relaxation therapy, that can give you a positive new outlook on life.
Chronic pain can also be a symptom of an underlying medical problem, such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis or nerve damage. Therefore, an in-depth evaluation is essential for identifying the cause of your pain and treating any underlying condition.
At Primary Care Physicians of Florida, our experienced pain management doctors can evaluate and treat a wide range of issues, including:
- Migraines and other chronic headaches
- Arthritis-related pain in the joints
- Back pain that makes it difficult to move, twist or lift objects
- Leg pain that limits your mobility
- Shoulder pain that gives you ongoing discomfort
- Foot pain that makes it difficult to walk
- Muscle pain anywhere in your body
- Neck pain that could indicate a spinal cord problem
We also treat complex problems like fibromyalgia, whose symptoms include widespread muscle and bone pain, along with fatigue, sleep and mood problems; and myofascial pain syndrome, where pressure on one muscle can cause discomfort in a different area of the body.
If you suffer from chronic pain, you should consult with a pain management doctor to determine the best strategy for your individual condition. For instance, there are different types of anti-inflammatory medicines–available from our in-house-pharmacy–that can be very effective for muscle of joint pain. Some patients with pain in the lower back or spinal area can benefit from infusion pumps that deliver a carefully calibrated dose of medication. In other cases, surgery can provide long-term pain relief without the need for ongoing medication.
So, don’t let chronic pain ruin your life. Our pain management doctors will help you find a solution that’s right for you. Give us a call at 954-983-9191 or use our simple online contact form to schedule an appointment today.
