At Elite Specialty Care, we understand that living with pain can interfere with both your physical and mental health. Everyone experiences and describes pain differently, which can make it difficult to diagnose and treat. As a multidisciplinary practice, we recognize the complex nature of pain, and approach pain problems from all directions. Our pain management team works in collaboration with other Elite Specialty Care physicians to build a treatment plan that addresses all of your symptoms and concerns. We can help you manage your pain and symptoms so you can get back to living an active lifestyle, without surgery. The goal of treatment is to reduce your current pain levels, prevent pain in the future, and improve your overall quality of life long-term.
Surgery is not always necessary to effectively treat injuries or chronic pain. In fact, at Elite Specialty Care, we recommend non-surgical intervention first, emphasizing your recovery and reducing downtime to as little as possible. Our goal is to relieve your pain and address its source in a way that is most appropriate for your condition, which often may not involve surgery. The modalities used in your specific treatment plan may vary depending on the extent of your injury, and we may modify your treatment plan over time. Our multidisciplinary team uses a collaborative approach so that you may benefit from multiple techniques that will address your pain in complementary ways. With an increasing number of new techniques and technologies becoming available for the treatment of pain, our pain management doctors are continuously trained to use this new knowledge safely and effectively.
With these non-invasive techniques, our pain management team can treat pain in all parts of the body, including:
When non-surgical pain management fails to provide adequate pain relief or is not able to correct the problem, surgical intervention may be necessary. The surgical team at Elite Specialty Care specialize in minimally-invasive techniques that optimize your recovery but using tiny incisions and equality as small surgical instruments so as to not disturb other parts of the body. This results in less pain during and after the procedure, less scarring, less risk of complications, and less downtime. We are experts in a wide range of surgical procedures, including orthopedics, spine, and foot & ankle surgery.
Pain is an unfortunate reality of being active and participating in sports. At Elite Specialty Care, we treat athletes of all levels. From recreational to elite athletes, we’re here to help you return to a healthy, active lifestyle. Many sports injuries will not require surgery, but may need some type of treatment to manage pain and inflammation while the injury heals. Pain management techniques can be especially useful in overuse injuries affecting the bone, muscles, ligaments, or tendons, including golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, hip bursitis, neck and back pain, and more. Overuse injuries develop over time, due to training or technique errors like improper form, not giving the body enough time to rest or heal, or focusing on one activity for too long. Following any type of injury or pain, it is important to see a specialist, as leaving a sports injury untreated can result in more severe symptoms and long-term effects. Your treatment may involve a combination of pain management techniques and surgical intervention.
