Alternatives to Prescription Painkillers

People living with chronic pain have more than just prescription painkillers available to help them. Opioid painkillers are often used as a quick solution to chronic pain, but there are alternative treatments that work to actually solve the underlying problem.

KureSmart Pain Management works with patients in our Maryland, Delaware, and Michigan pain management clinics to find holistic pain management methods with minimal to no use of prescription painkillers.

Our team works to identify and treat the source of pain, allowing you to live without needing opioid painkillers or other prescription medications. You don’t have to live in constant pain, and there are several holistic treatment options available to you.

PHYSICAL THERAPY

Our patients receive one-on-one care from the same therapist for the duration of their therapy with a focus on delivering quality treatment that focuses on the cause of the pain rather than just the symptoms.

RHIZOTOMY

Rhizotomy is an effect treatment for chronic back pain from degenerative disc disease, where in pain causing nerve roots are destroyed using radiofrequency waves. This procedure is also used to treat neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy and is sometimes referred to as facet rhizotomy when used to treat back pain.

EPIDURAL INJECTIONS

Epidural steroid injections offer relief for patients who have lower back pain and leg pain. This non-surgical method of treatment can be very effective for treating patients with sciatica and lower back pain. The injection delivers a dose of steroids and anesthetic into the epidural space in the spine.

HEADACHE MANAGEMENT

The goal of headache management is to reduce stress and tension to the involved tissue(s) by restoring mobility, improving muscle balance and posture, as well as identifying activities that contribute to the problem.

TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS

Trigger point injections are used to treat pain in areas of the muscle called trigger points, which are knots of muscle that forms when muscle fails to relax. They deliver a dose of steroid and anesthetic directly into the painful muscle.

FACET JOINT INJECTIONS

Facet joint injections deliver pain-relieving medication and are used as part of an interdisciplinary approach to pain management and therapy. The facet joints are the small joints at each segment of the spine. Providing stability and helping to guide movement, the facet joints can become damaged by arthritis, injury or stress to the back.

KureSmart Pain Management offers these and other treatments in several locations across Delaware, Maryland, and even Michigan. Schedule your individual consultation today to find pain relief so you can live the life you deserve.
