Pain Management for Cancer Patients
At Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, we understand how difficult cancer-related pain can be. That’s why we approach treatment from several different angles. Our staff of compassionate and experienced board-certified pain management doctors includes a physiatrist, an interventional pain management specialist, and an alternative medicine practitioner. This multispecialty approach allows us to provide the most comprehensive and effective care possible.
A Number of Treatment Options Available
When you visit our state-of-the-art center located in Freehold and Monroe Township, New Jersey, you’ll sit down with a physician who will assess your pain and create a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. Our physicians emphasize conservative and alternative treatments whenever possible. For instance, we may recommend:
- Physical therapy
- Medical acupuncture
If your pain does not respond to these conservative treatment methods, we may recommend a targeted injection, such as a nerve block. This relatively safe procedure, which is performed at our onsite fluoroscopy suite, does not involve a prolonged recovery period, and the results usually become apparent within days. And, since an injection is not a surgical procedure, there’s no wound to heal or scarring afterward.
