Pain is the most common reason for seeking out medical care. Chronic pain affects approximately 20% of the US population to the point of daily or nearly daily pain. Those afflicted report lower quality of life, increased medical costs, and decreased ability to work. Chronic pain has many contributing factors: mechanical or neurological injury, chronic inflammation, psychological, behavioral, and social contributors. With so many contributing factors, the treatments vary widely.
At Vitality Family Healthcare we pursue non-opiate forms of pain treatment. We evaluate each patient with a whole-person approach for both diagnosis and treatment of pain. Many therapies we can offer in the office, such as PRP/PRF, wet needling, joint injections with ultrasound guidance, prolotherapy, and trigger point injections. Each of these therapies can help to reduce chronic pain.
We can also treat chronic pain with a variety of non-opiate medications to help make the pain more manageable while we conduct testing for the cause of your chronic pain. In addition, we have relationships with physical therapists, prosthetic and device providers, and a variety of surgical specialists who offer lower cash pricing than most hospitals and outpatient surgical centers.
