Post-Surgical Pain Treatment Options for Freehold, NJ, Residents
After you’ve had surgery, the journey to recovery begins, and Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute can help you along the way. Our specialists offer highly individualized post-surgical pain treatment options that can help alleviate your discomfort and gradually get you back to feeling your best and functioning at an optimal level.
Our physicians use a combination of safe and effective treatment techniques that can restore you to a more productive lifestyle post-surgery. They will customize a comprehensive rehabilitation program that utilizes conservative and alternative treatments, such as:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech therapy
- Medical acupuncture
Post-surgical pain can also be managed with multiple pain-reducing medications. The appropriate type, delivery, and dose of the medications will be determined based on your personal medical history and the type of surgery you underwent. Some of the medications your doctor may recommend include:
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB) and naproxen (Aleve, Anaprox)
- Non-opioid pain relievers, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ketamine (Ketalar)
If your post-surgical pain isn’t relieved using conservative treatment methods, we can perform targeted injections in our onsite, state-of-the-art fluoroscopy suite. These procedures are a safe, nonsurgical option, and can include epidural steroid injections; myofascial injections; and bursa, joint, and nerve injections.
