Pain Management Q & A

What causes chronic or acute pain?

Several different factors can contribute to chronic or acute pain. At Zanesville Medical Center, your team of specialists and physicians work together to determine the cause of your pain, as well as the best way to treat it. In most cases, you have a series of tests and a full medical evaluation during your first appointment.

For many people, pain is caused by trauma or injury to a particular area of the body. That can happen from overusing a muscle, breaking a bone, developing arthritis, or tearing a ligament.

Chronic pain can also accompany an underlying medical condition, such as an autoimmune disorder or a disease of the musculoskeletal system.

For some patients, an acute episode of stress or chronic stress can also tax the body, creating pain and tension.

How is pain treated?

At Zanesville Medical Center, your care team uses a combination of osteopathy, physical therapy, and chiropractic approaches to help ease your pain and prevent it from returning.

As a complex system, each body is unique and requires an individualized treatment approach. Your plan may include modalities like:

  • Physical therapy exercises, either done at home or one-on-one with a therapist at the office
  • Chiropractic adjustments, which help to realign the body’s skeletal system and support bone and spine health
  • Medications, supplements, or injections that help to relieve symptoms or correct imbalances that are causing your pain

If you have an underlying health condition, your physician can also recommend specific options or provide you with a referral to address this problem.

The primary goal of the Zanesville Medical Center team is to provide you with a treatment protocol that suits your needs. Your comfort and safety are always of the utmost importance.

What are the benefits of medical pain management?

Home remedies for pain management can also provide a certain level of relief. For many people, pain becomes debilitating and can interfere with their lives or their work. Left untreated, chronic or acute pain can even leave you more susceptible to further injuries, posture issues, accidents, or other complications.

Under the supervision of an expert medical team, pain management is a results-oriented process. The Zanesville Medical Center team uses different methods or a combination of treatment modalities until you feel healthy, strong, mobile, and pain-free.
