Pain Management Q & A
What is pain management?
Pain management is a comprehensive approach to handling your pain by combining numerous treatment methods, including:
- Physical therapy
- Mind-body techniques
- Alternative approaches
What kinds of pain management options are there?
When you see Dr. Manes for pain management, he looks for the cause of your pain. Once he identifies the culprit, he creates an individualized treatment plan to address your issues.
Through this plan, he may recommend a variety of ways to reduce your pain and help you manage it. He may suggest:
- Lifestyle changes
- At-home exercises
- Improving your diet
- Physical therapy
- Chiropractic care
- Engaging in meditation or deep breathing exercises
- Pain-relieving creams
- Anti-inflammatory medications
Although Dr. Manes attempts to avoid invasive procedures, in some cases he may recommend orthopedic surgery.
How are pain management treatments decided?
Dr. Manes looks for physical causes of your pain, and if they’re present, addresses them. Often these include problems like:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain
He uses a combination of your pain’s intensity, duration, and location to determine the best course of action.
He may recommend strengthening exercises or stretches to reduce muscle pain. If there’s an issue with how your body is functioning or how your nerves communicate with each other, he may recommend surgical intervention.
What is Dr. Manes’s Herbal Motion?
To help patients reduce pain levels naturally, Dr. Manes created his own Herbal Motion Pain Relief Cream. The most potent pain relieving cream available without a prescription, it combines the powerful pain relieving properties of:
- Hemp oil
Although it can be used topically for any musculoskeletal pain, Dr. Manes recommends it for arthritis pain, as well as for pain in your muscles or back.
This cream is free from paraben, phthalates, and camphor. It’s also odor-free, allowing you to apply it without having to worry about an embarrassing smell.
Specially designed to follow the FDA’s homeopathic guidelines, this formula is safe and effective for arthritis, backaches, and joint pain.
