Joint immobilization is a technique that restricts joint movement, wholly or partially, for a specific period of time and may include cast braces, splints, or slings. It is commonly used in pain management to treat various joint-related injuries and conditions.
For pain relief, many people have turned to prescription opioids which can have serious side effects. , For this reason, Texas Intergrative Pain Institute relies on integrative health care approaches that can relieve pain, massage therapy is a safe and effective option we may suggest.
As board-certified pain management specialists, our physicians at TIPI Pain Management in Houston understand the important role prescription medication plays for some patients who suffer from chronic pain. At the same time, it’s just as important to know that pain medication alone is not an effective treatment, nor is it intended as a long-term solution
Nerve blocks are an advanced pain management treatment that involves the injection of a small quantity of a steroid, in combination with a medication to numb a specific nerve as it exits the spinal cord. These injections can be used where chronic pain exists, from neck to lower back.
Opioid Abuse Counseling
At TIPI Pain Management in Houston we help patients manage pain symptoms with responsible prescribing. Please make us aware if you have previous struggled with substance abuse in the past.
One of the biggest misconceptions about pain management therapy is that it suggests that the pain is “all in your head.” This is simply not true. In fact, pain management therapy is often used together with medical and alternative treatments. It is a part of a whole-body approach to coping with real physical pain. The whole-body approach examines how pain impacts your daily activities, behaviors, thoughts, and emotions.
Passive/ Active Stretching
Stretching is extremely important for your body to recover from an injury as it has many proven benefits, including improving joint function as it loosens stiff muscles and other joint tissue, allowing you greater freedom of movement; it also promotes circulation, better coordination, and relaxes stiff muscles.
At TIPI Pain Management in Houston, we believe our patients should stay well informed to better identify situations that can exacerbate their pain or relieve it. We reinforce the need for rest and eating balanced meals, we also offer a diet program and teach alternative pain control such as relaxation, hot and cold therapy, distractions, and imagery. This is all a component of our individualized pain management plan.
If you have acute pain, we may suggest physical therapy to help identify and promote healing and reduce stress in the injured area. They will also offer guidance as to how to safely return to your normal activities without further damage to your injuries. During your initial consultation, our pain management team will analyze your prior record, x-ray and conduct a medical exam that may include further testing or treatments.
Resistance training can help reduce back pain as it's to develop strength, especially back strength. The muscles in your back help keep your spine moving as it should. You could be more prone to back strain if you have weak back or abdominal muscles. Strong, healthy back muscles are also important because they're associated with your posture. And in some cases, chronic back pain is a result of poor posture.
Tens Unit Therapy
TENS, or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, is a back pain treatment that uses low-voltage electric current to relieve pain. This is done with a small battery-operated device. The device can be hooked to a belt and is connected to two electrodes. The electrodes carry an electric current from the TENS machine to the skin to stimulate the nerves; the body produces natural painkillers called endorphins.
Injection therapies are a minimally invasive way to treat chronic, acute and inflammatory pain. As a non-surgical treatment, many patients successfully experience immediate relief and a quick recovery.
