Pain

Relief Treatment

Whether from strain, impact, or another cause, pain relief is one of the most sought-after medical consultations in the United States. With over 20% of Americans suffering from chronic pain alone, it's not unusual for many American men and women to suffer from both temporary and longer-lasting forms of pain. Generally described as uncomfortable sensations in the body that can range from a minor inconvenience to debilitating, pain ranges wildly depending on the cause.

Patients that require chronic pain management

Call-On-Doc offers treatment for non-complicated conditions specifically characterized by pain. The most common examples of what we offer pain relief treatment include: 

medical care

Joint Pain: Characterized by discomfort, aching, or soreness in one or more joints, often accompanied by stiffness, swelling, and reduced range of motion.

medical care

Arthritis: Marked by chronic joint inflammation leading to symptoms such as joint pain, stiffness, swelling, and decreased range of motion, often worsening over time.

medical care

Gout: Manifests as sudden and excruciating joint pain, usually in the big toe, accompanied by redness, swelling, and tenderness, and can be associated with fever and discomfort.

medical care

Tooth Ache: Characterized by a sharp or throbbing pain in a tooth, often triggered by hot or cold temperatures, sweet foods, or pressure, and can be accompanied by swelling and discomfort in the affected area.

medical care

Back Pain: Presents as discomfort or aching in the lower, middle, or upper back, which can be sharp or dull, and may be associated with muscle stiffness, limited mobility, or radiating pain into the legs or other areas.

medical care

Sprains: Typically involve pain, swelling, and bruising around a joint, often resulting from overstretching or tearing of ligaments, and can be associated with reduced range of motion and instability in the affected area.

medical care

Headaches: Characterized by pain or discomfort in the head, often with varying intensity, location, and duration, and may be accompanied by sensitivity to light or noise, nausea, and sometimes visual disturbances.

medical care

Menstrual Cramps: Involve lower abdominal or pelvic pain that can range from mild to severe, occurring before or during menstruation, and often accompanied by backache, nausea, and discomfort.

Non-complicated pain, which refers to pain that is not associated with underlying serious medical conditions or complex pathologies, is typically caused by a variety of factors. The most common causes of this condition include:

Normally, diagnosing non-complicated pain involves confirming where the pain originates, discussing the symptoms, the patient’s medical history, and if there were any direct causatives to the condition. In the event that it is not accompanied by other symptoms, a doctor will move forward with pain relief treatment, but if the pain is considered severe or makes normal life challenging, would recommend a physical examination alongside potential tests like X-rays, CT scans, or MRIs. 

In addition to pain relief medication, treatment surrounding non-complicated pain involves reducing the symptoms over time. With acute injuries that include swelling, cold therapy or ice packs are recommended in the first 48 hours or first two days. Always use a barrier between the ice or ice pack, like a towel.

When swelling and inflammation are active symptoms, we recommend against using heat as it can make symptoms worse. However, for sore or tense muscles, stiff joints affected by osteoarthritis, and chronic pain from arthritis or muscle tension, heat therapy can prove effective in reducing the severity of symptoms. Also beneficial when applied to menstrual cramps, heat therapy typically involves using heating pads, warmed towels, a warm compress, and warm baths.

When it comes to home remedies developed for pain relief, many involve the intake of herbs, types of vitamins, and either stretching or exercising the body, depending on the pain’s source. The most common home remedies for pain include: 

medical care

Aromatherapy: Aromatherapy is a holistic healing practice that involves the use of essential oils extracted from plants to promote physical, emotional, and psychological well-being. These highly concentrated oils are typically inhaled or applied topically, with the most common oils including eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint, and rosemary. 

medical care

Boswellia: Also known as frankincense, Boswellia is believed to help with pain relief due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It can inhibit the production of inflammatory substances in the body, potentially reducing pain and discomfort in conditions like arthritis and inflammatory disorders.

medical care

Capsaicin: Capsaicin, found in chili peppers, helps with pain relief by acting as a topical analgesic. It works by desensitizing nerve receptors in the skin, reducing the transmission of pain signals and providing relief, particularly for conditions like neuropathic pain or arthritis.

medical care

Cloves: Cloves contain eugenol, a natural compound with analgesic properties that can help with pain relief. When applied topically or consumed in moderation, eugenol may temporarily numb the area, alleviate toothaches, or reduce pain associated with conditions like headaches and muscle aches.

medical care

Feverfew: Feverfew is believed to help with pain relief, particularly in the context of migraines, due to its potential ability to reduce blood vessel constriction and inflammation in the brain.

medical care

Ginger: Ginger contains compounds with anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that may help reduce pain and inflammation. It can be effective in alleviating various types of pain, including muscle soreness, osteoarthritis-related discomfort, and menstrual cramps when consumed as part of the diet or in supplement form.

medical care

Turmeric: Turmeric contains curcumin, a natural compound known for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, which can help reduce pain and inflammation in conditions like arthritis, joint pain, and muscle soreness when consumed as a spice or in supplement form. 

Alongside pain relief treatment and medication, ongoing management is to reduce the severity of symptoms and get to a point where normal functions are possible. Alongside home remedies and temperature therapies, this can include: 

medical care

R.I.C.E.: An acronym for a common approach to pain relief and injury management. It stands for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation, and it involves resting the injured area, applying ice to reduce swelling and pain, using compression to support and stabilize the injury, and elevating the injured limb to minimize swelling.

medical care

Anti-inflammatory diet: An anti-inflammatory diet emphasizes whole foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats while minimizing processed foods, sugary beverages, and foods high in saturated and trans fats.

medical care

Massage Therapy: For injuries or conditions that allow it, massage therapy can be an effective resource for improving a person’s condition while reducing severity over time. 

medical care

Stretch when Possible: in the event that movement is possible, stretching muscles and joints will help your body’s circulation and allow it to push the healing process forward. 

medical care

Build-up to Exercise: When deemed possible, controlled methods of exercise will benefit the healing process by allowing the body to adapt back to normal movement. It is best to start out with aerobic exercises with examples like in-place cycling, walking, and using an elliptical; the process should not be rushed so that further injury can be avoided.

Sometimes avoiding sources of pain is just not possible, but there are habits you can practice that allow for a greater chance to do so or to make recovery easier. These can include:
