Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

All too often, people with pain simply turn to medications for relief, which only mask the underlying problem without delivering long-term solutions. Dr. Golberg approaches your pain with two goals in mind: first, he relieves your immediate pain, and then he finds effective ways to help your body heal for a long-term solution to your pain.

Through holistic pain management, Dr. Golberg treats your entire body to optimize function, allowing it to do what it does best– heal and regenerate.

What types of treatments are used for pain management?

Dr. Golberg has a number of tools in his pain management arsenal, which he tailors to your unique situation and goals. These treatments include:

Platelet-rich plasma therapy

   

Your blood contains platelets, which are critical for clotting. These platelets also contain hundreds of proteins, or growth factors, which encourage regeneration on a cellular level. Dr. Golberg isolates these platelets and redirects them to where you need them most.  

Physical therapy

   

Physical therapy plays a critical role in pain management because it’s designed to strengthen your body, giving you back full function, while also preventing re-injury down the road.

Acupuncture

Using tiny needles, Dr. Golberg restores the flow of energy in your body, allowing it to get to where it’s needed most for swift healing.

Osteopathic medicine

Your musculoskeletal system relies on balance and when there’s a misalignment in the structure, the effects can be both local and systemic. By correcting misalignments in your spine, Dr. Golberg allows your body to function as it should, without blockages that hold up critical resources.

What conditions can be addressed through pain management?

Through his innovative and holistic approach, Dr. Golberg is able to address many different conditions that cause both acute and chronic pain. To give you an idea of the wide scope of problems he can treat, the following is a list of the most common issues:

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Tennis and golfer’s elbow
  • Hamstring and hip strains
  • Knee and ankle sprains
  • Nerve entrapment syndromes, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia

 

Again, this list is just a representation of the types of problems that Dr. Golberg can treat. The bottom line is that Dr. Golberg treats any pain that’s affecting your quality of life.
