What is Acute Pain?
Acute pain typically is caused by an acute soft tissue injury that is resolved within no more than a 3 month timeframe. Sometimes, it means a soft tissue injury has occurred (soft tissue injuries are sprains, strains, tears of muscles, tendons, ligaments) and is causing pain to the body.
Acute Pain Management
Acute pain management involves conservative treatment through procedures like trigger-point injections, joint injections, mild doses of short-term prescriptions, muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatories, nerve pain medication, and more.
Other Aspects of Acute Pain Management Plan of Care
Other ways that a Physician might treat an acute injury causing pain is through durable medical equipment (DME), back braces, knee braces, a TENS unit, or topical medications like pain creams and patches. For acute pain management, we refer our patients to see a Physical Therapist, Chiropractor, and sometimes a specialist such as an Orthopedic Surgeon.
