Pain Management

Austin Powers Medical Group

What is pain management?

Pain management is a medical approach that helps patients deal with chronic pain in a safe and effective way. Since there are many different causes of pain, pain management is customized to each patient’s needs. Dr. Austin aims to alleviate symptoms through different treatments, including:

  • Interventional procedures, like steroid injections
  • Medication management
  • Physical therapy
  • Alternative therapies, like acupuncture or chiropractic modalities
  • Dietary changes or lifestyle modifications

Dr. Austin can also refer you to other medical specialists or direct your care if you have a chronic condition that is causing your pain. The goal of pain management is to help you get back to your life in a pain-free state.

What conditions does pain management help?  

There are a number of different medical conditions that can cause chronic pain. Dr. Austin treats patients with:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Injuries
  • Spinal disc problems
  • Autoimmune disorders

Some people might have more than one health problem that leads to chronic pain. In these cases, working with a medical expert can help you where other methods have failed.

What results can I expect?

Pain management doesn’t produce overnight results, but it’s often the starting point for getting back your health and mobility. Dr. Austin works with each patient on a personalized basis, and she ensures that you find relief from pain by addressing the root cause of your symptoms.

Most patients can benefit from a number of different treatment methods over the course of several weeks or months. Your care might include starting with one therapy and trying other methods depending on your results.

When should I get pain management treatment?

While it’s normal to experience aches and pains from time to time, it’s not normal — or necessary — to suffer.

You should seek medical care if you have pain that doesn’t get better with rest or home remedies, or if you’ve sustained an injury.

If you have pain that interrupts your ability to work, participate in everyday activities, or stay active, contact Austin Powers Medical Group for a consultation.
